The Little Black Dress: August Beauty Month


The Little Black Dress is a statement of versatility and beauty. An icon duly named “Chanel’s Ford” was introduced in 1926 by the fashion empress herself, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. Coco transformed the mourning tone of black to a suitable item for any occasion.

Audrey Hepburn was a vision of elegance in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The notorious black dress and pearls are seen in several scenes, held on different occasions and audiences. This dynamic duo of fashion set a timeless fashion statement.

Versatility is by far the best feature of the black dress. This piece of clothing pairs well with turquoise and pink, yellow and red, to name a few. Unlike any other clothing item, the black dress is unlimited in its options of pairings and looks. 

Beach Casual


Nothing says beach chic like a big, floppy hat and Hollywood-esque sunglasses. A black dress may seem ridiculous under the sun; however, the effect will be opposite. The wearer will stand out in this classic style.

Simple Elegance


The Black Dress will look lovely solo or worn with accessories. Take a leaf out of Chanel’s book and escape the social norm of comfort and ease. Be bold in this garment of femininity and charm.
