Little Black Dress Remains A Fashion Staple


Little Black Dress Remains A Fashion Staple

By: Chastity Garner

Breakfast at Tiffany’s, however cliche’, is one of my favorite movies. The movie brings to the forefront “The Little Black Dress,” which can be said was created by CoCo Chanel herself some decades before, but can anyone really remember the “LBD” before Audrey Hepburn and her famous dress by Hubert de Givenchy. One of the things that you can pull away from the movie is that Miss Golightly had a small budget and basically wore the same two dresses throughout the movie, but looked so very chic doing it.

I love buying staple pieces to add to my wardrobe and I find it important to invest in these few pieces. A simple black dress can be worn many times and can be accessorized to give it a different feel every time you wear it.  In the movie, these dresses were simply accessorized, but assisted in the dress looking “oh so chic.” A few accessories that work for a ‘LBD’ according to great stylist Rachel Zoe include:

  • Tuxedo Jacket
  • Red pumps

Fribibi Red Pump,

  • Animal Print Clutch
  •  Chunky Bracelets

Chunky Wooden Bracelet, Raghouse International

  • Over the top earrings
  • Red Lipstick
  • Fishnet Tights

Fishnet Tights,


Your Little Black Dress can also be sexy without showing all of your goods (thats what we say in the country..LOL). It isn’t always necessary to show all your assets to be seen as beautiful. Throughout the movie Audrey Hepburn is covered up and looks absolutely lovely. Even though, in the movie she was broke, she looked like she had a million dollars in the bank. The clothes she had on gave her class, elegance, and beauty all in one shot.

Readers I would like to know where is your Little Black Dress from and how to do accessorize it?
