Why is The Black Dress An Absolute Must-Have?

Since its creation, Coco Chanel's little black dress has become an indispensable part of a woman's wardrobe. It's hard to miss this timeless piece that every woman should have in her wardrobe. But what is the strength or rather what are the advantages of the black dress? If you're still hesitating to take the plunge and integrate this basic in your wardrobe, Della  gives you the four great advantages of the black dress that could well help you invest in this chic basic.


The little black dress is simple and versatile

It's its neutral hue that makes this dress easy to wear. Its black colour allows it to be associated with any jacket, shoes, accessories... It also gives this dress the possibility to be worn on any occasion. It fits perfectly with flat or casual shoes for everyday casual outfits. If you want to be more chic or formal, just combine it with pretty heels and some elegant accessories. Want to be noticed for your femininity or glamour? Wear it with a sexy lipstick and stilettos. Your look will be stunning. Do you find the little black dress monotonous at times? Nothing prevents you from breaking its formal side by pairing it with colourful shoes and a brightly coloured handbag.

The little black dress is slimming and offers a note of mystery.

Another asset that makes this dress a legendary piece: black not only makes the silhouette slimmer but is also thanked for lengthening it. This neutral and chic hue also brings a touch of mystery deliciously glamorous. According to the psychology of colours, black is associated with secrecy, mystery, the unknown. Specificities that are sure to add charm to your look. Moreover, as we explained in a previous article: Black makes us look smarter. Slimmer, elongated silhouette, glamour, mystery and intelligence? Few clothes can be recognized to offer us so many advantages.


The little black dress adapts to all silhouettes

Thanks to its simple and pure look, the little black coat can suit all types of morphologies. Whether you have an hourglass silhouette, a pyramid-like morphology or a voluptuous body with a slight waist, there is a little black dress made for you. Choose one that fits your silhouette perfectly and you'll instantly look chic and feminine. If you have an hourglass or pyramid shape, choose a dress with a V-neck. If you have a round body shape, prefer blouse dresses. And if your shoulders are wider than your hips (inverted triangle body shape), choose asymmetrical necklines instead.


The little black dress is a timeless basic.

It is for its ability to cross fashions, seasons and eras while keeping its simple and ultra-chic look that the little black dress has managed to impose itself as the queen of fashion. As Karl Lagerfeld says, "One is never too much or too little dressed in a little black dress". It is true that you can achieve a chic look effortlessly with this dress. All you have to do is add a few accessories. Necklaces, bracelets, belts, shoes... the choices are endless. The little black dress can be a perfect fit for all our desires.

The little black dress

Christian Dior used to say, "A little black dress is an essential part of a woman's wardrobe". An essential part of a woman's wardrobe, the little black dress has stood the test of time and imposed itself throughout the 20th century. DELLA invites you to go back over the history of this inevitable, not to say essential, garment.


The genesis of a success story

Fashion historians attribute the origin of the little black dress to Coco Chanel. Indeed, in 1926, Vogue magazine published a dress designed by Coco Chanel. Very simple, it has long sleeves and stops at the knee. Only a few diagonal lines come to dress the elegant sobriety of this dress. Because of this unusual simplicity for the time, the magazine nicknamed it "Chanel's Ford". Initially, the dress caused a scandal because of its short length and its colour, which since the Victorian era was reserved for servants and widows who had to wear it for at least two years. 


But its look, stripped of the pomp and ceremony of the time and simplified at its peak, would soon become accessible to all social classes, and become a symbol of elegance and refinement. A revolutionary creation that freed women's bodies from Victorian dresses. 


The little black dress: A star in the spotlight

Hollywood's influence on fashion also contributed to the popularity of the little black dress. For technical reasons, as the use of Technicolor film became more common, filmmakers preferred the black dress because the other colours did not have the desired rendering on the screen. This is how the 7th art immortalized this great classic of elegance and raised it to the rank of fashion star. 


From the femme fatale (Rita Hayworth in Charles Vidor's "Gilda") to the mysterious, seductive and elegant woman (Audrey Hepburn in Blake Edwards' "Breakfast at Tiffany's"), the black dress has imposed its versatility on the cinema. 


The glamorous icons of the big screen are not the only ones to have succumbed to the charm of the indispensable black dress. LBD (little black dress) fans are meeting up, as Coco Chanel wanted, in all social circles, including songwriting circles (Edith Piaf, Juliette Gréco, Françoise Hardy, Barbara...) and stateswomen (Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Michelle Obama). 


An exercise in style for all creators

If the little black dress has been worn by icons and celebrities of different styles throughout the 20th century, it is because it has the magical gift of adapting to its time, of representing strong and symbolic images corresponding to the spirit of each decade. 


It is also because reinventing, revisiting the little black dress has become an exercise in style for designers.  An essential part of every collection. 


For 90 years, this timeless garment has been designed, modelled and fashioned by stylists to reflect their universe. The little black dress has been modernized and there are today dresses of all shapes and styles: eccentric, elegant, seductive, rock, glamour, graphic, futuristic... There is no lack of adjectives to evoke the different declinations of this garment that has survived through the ages. However, only one word is enough to qualify it: Mythical.
