London, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 29 March 2012
The Little Black Dress, as iconic a fashion piece as they come, continues to see out season after season as the quintessentially stylish wardrobe piece. Short, long, tailored, tight, structured or strapless, it shakes off other trends as the sure-thing in fashion.
So why does such a little black dress carry so much weight in the fashion world?
Yves Saint Laurent in the 70s, Alaia and Lagerfeld in the 80s and 90s and a host of emerging designers are making these dresses their own today, from Gareth Pugh’s black leather sleeveless dress on the catwalk, to New Look’s range of modern-day takes on the wardrobe must-have. The enduring obsession illustrates just how revered this dress is.
The colour and the simplicity of this dress lends itself to complete versatility. It managed to stay reassuringly familiar and able to adapt to new trends effortlessly. In this way, it always remains modern. It also benefits from needing very little accessorising. With cultural attachments that bestow a certain mythic grandeur to this piece of wardrobe royalty, it is enough to simply wear the Little Black Dress on its own. Pearls and neckties are optional accessories that work well with its simplicity, but equally, a stylish pair of good shoes and a clutch will finish this ensemble with fuss-free effectiveness.
New Look, who offer a wide range of party dresses are fashion favourites on the high street, offering seasonally spot-on pieces throughout the year. In tribute to the iconic wardrobe staple, they have dedicated an entire section to the little black dress, which is set to stay. The variety is extensive, ranging from the chic and simple, to the flamboyant and sequinned. Their criss-cross chiffon black dress nods to Alaia’s influence, whilst their belted chiffon dress has sophisticated shades of Chanel.
Its remains the go-to number to wear for all and every occasion; it’s dramatic and elegant, theatrical and demure.
