Finding and Styling the Perfect LBD in Oklahoma City

The timeless classic that is the LBD
Simplicity

The little black dress needs no introduction. Women have embraced this time- less classic for decades, and its appeal isn’t likely to wane anytime soon. It was in October 1926 that designer Coco Chanel’s black crepe sheath was featured on the cover of Vogue magazine, forever changing the way women thought about dresses and the color black. Then in 1961, actress Audrey Hepburn wore what many think is the most famous of all little black dresses in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. These days, the LBD—as it is often called—is versatile and flattering and can be elegantly simple, knock-out sexy, ultra-feminine, super sporty, or hyper modern, depending on the style and how it’s accessorized. There’s one for any occasion or mood. It’s that ability to be refashioned that adds to the allure. Here are a few stylish and fun ways to wear a little black dress.

 

THE LUXE – It may not be the same style that Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but it is picture-perfect. CO draped shoulder dress and Auden earrings and necklace from Gordon Stuart.
