"I have too much black in my wardrobe!" said no woman ever. Black is not just a colour, it’s a statement. It has been considered the go-to colour of choice for a long time now. However, it was initially awash in the fashion world as the colour of mourning, worn only under particular circumstances. It was far from securing its coveted place in women’s wardrobes. In an era when only bright colours were considered fashionable and fancy, Vogue magazine featured Coco Chanel’s "Little Black Dress" in the 1920s, unleashing the long reign of this timeless fashion staple. The cover showed a drawing of a woman in a long-sleeved black dress posing in pearls. The "little black dress," or LBD, is widely regarded as the invention that revolutionised fashion.
When the classic Ford was only available in black, a quote attributed to Henry Ford about the love of black goes something like this: "You can have any colour as long as it's black". This prompted the magazine to name the dress as "The Ford", referring to the popular car model at the time. Black dresses found a permanent home in women’s wardrobes after one of the world’s most beloved actresses, Audrey Hepburn, wore a satin black dress designed by Givenchy in the iconic movie Breakfast at Tiffany's. Coming out of a yellow cab, dressed in a black satin gown with a layered pearl necklace, holding her coffee and croissant, Hepburn gave us one of the most influential dresses in twentieth-century fashion history. LBDs have become an irreplaceable piece of clothing ever since.
Plain and simple, lightly textured, and modest, the LBD is one of the few garments to have inspired designers and appealed to people at such lengths. The versatility of the LBD has helped it reserve its place for every occasion. Available in numerous designs, the LBD requires minimal accessories to shine. Just as Audery has inspired us all, pairing it with a necklace set enhances its beauty to another level since it pairs well with most outfits. Read along to learn more about necklace sets for your LBD.
