"When a little black dress is right, there is nothing else to wear in its place," said the Duchess of Windsor - Wallis Warfield Simpson who was well known to own several little black dresses. Designed by Coco Chanel during the year 1926, this simple black jersey dress became 'the new uniform of modern women'.


The iconic little black dress has grown in popularity over the years; often referred by its abbreviation LBD. The dress is branded 'little' as the garments that proceeded seemed to be voluminous and overblown when compared to this dress. Dress it up or down with appropriate little black dress jewelry.


The little black dress

This is a no-fail option dress which can be worn anywhere, whether heading off to a family reunion or cruising on a ship or just attending a party with friends. Constant at catwalks or red carpets, the little black dress has come to stay for over 90 years now. This vintage dress is a classic way to look and feel well dressed day or night.


Versatility of the little black dress

If this dress is worn strapless, it can help show off great shoulders. For those who want to be better covered, the taffeta shirt black dress which features length sleeves should suit better. If fitted to the waist, an hour glass figure can be shown off to best advantage. It can be worn as a mini dress or right below the knee.


While a pretty ruffled sleeve can give the wearer a hint of girlish charm, a torso full of leather stripes on a mini little black dress is perfect for cocktail dressing. It is perfectly versatile for any shape or style. Glittery buttons and a satin sash add an additional touch of elegance and glamour to the little black dress. For party lovers, shapely jersey bodice with back ruched waist and flattering V neckline little black dress that is dauntingly tempting would do well.


The little black dress can be worn with a jacket or pumps for business or official work, and with a string of pearls or more ornate jewelry for a special occasion. Long or short, sexy or sassy, dressy or simple, the little black dress has become a must in every woman's wardrobe, a once in a lifetime investment that never lets the wearer down.


Little black dress for every woman


The right black dress can work magically and strategically with any kind of figure, either offsetting the hips or a broader bust line. A figure hugging little black dress cinched with a belt would be a perfect fit for a woman with a well defined waist and curves.


For those bigger on top and with broad shoulders, a little black dress that if fitted above and flares from the waist to a fuller skirt would be a better choice. Little black dress with V neck bodice would look best on this shape. Women with broader bottoms can use A-line skirts that skim the hips and details the top thereby streamlining the shape to an ideal fit.


Little black dress plus size


For those women requiring an extra large fit of this little black dress which has become an epitome of feminine style and elegance, the plus size is available ranging from 14 to 44. Plus size dresses are aimed at the plus sized women perfectly combining style with glamour. Plus sized women can use little black dress in long plus size, short plus size and mini plus size.


An attractive little black dress is available in velvet metallic prints in plus sizes with a plunging mesh neckline for a stunning look well suited for a romantic night. A little black dress plus size with shrug, sexy and graceful with Victorian lace trim on hem with empire waist is sure to make heads turn at a party.


For those looking for a plus sized little black dress for homecoming, there is a chic and sophisticated beautiful tea length dress that will flatter a heavy figure. For a formal dance, the perfect minimalist little black dress in plus size with sheer sleeves and keyhole detail with ballerina neckline and fully lined should be ideal. A family celebration calls for an unexpected and daring combination, a little black dress featuring full circle chiffon sleeve on one side and exposed arm on the other for sultry asymmetry.


Little black dress jewelry


The beauty of the little black dress is such that it can be played up or down with jewelry accessories. A necklace that fits the stylish neckline of the dress, a brooch that could be pinned in a selective spot on the dress, daringly attractive chandelier earrings can combine with the dress to create dramatic effects on the wearer. Costume jewelry with the little black dress creates a glittering look.


There are exclusive LBD jewelry collections in sterling silver, natural gemstones, cubic zircons and platinum plates. Drop pendant necklaces, fancy rings, hoop earrings and matching bracelets are part of the adornment which is a joy for every woman who yearns to wear the little black dress with jewelry accessories. Regal strands of original pearls and glass beads in kaleidoscopic hues perfectly compliment any pretty little black dress. Most of the jewelry is uniquely handcrafted.
