To be precise, this little black dress has a date of birth, and that is October 1, 1926. That is when Coco Chanel introduced a new approach to her favorite black color to the public. Up to that time, black things had been worn just as mourning clothes.

Today, the LBD (Little Black Dress) is in the wardrobe of many women. And if you do not have it – it is high time you bought it because, according to fashion designers and fashion experts, it is one of the basic things. It is, indeed, never boring, although it changes from season to season. And Karl Lagerfeld once said that in a little black dress one would never feel too naked or too dressed. According to him, a little black dress is just perfect.
