Consider making changes in your wardrobe, start with something small before making bigger moves. Change can be good, especially as we grow and learn more about our own personal style. Something we have engrained in our brains for years is to always have a little black dress in our wardrobe. But maybe we could venture out to try a new hue instead.
The LBD has a history in fashion, once introduced back in 1926 by none other than Coco Chanel. She invented the little black dress during a time when no one (especially women) would don a simple, black dress unless in mourning. A fact we seem to forget is that this was revolutionary in fashion, it made a statement because it was something no one had done before.
“I imposed black; it’s still going strong today, for black wipes out everything around”
– Coco Chanel
Created for its simplicity and accessibility to women during hard times which later led to the Great Depression and war. The LBD was a way to achieve elegance while still living a reasonable and affordable lifestyle.
I will never deny that having a little black dress in your wardrobe can be essential but I do argue that sometimes we can exchange the LBD for a LND (little navy dress). Simple, chic, and sophisticated the little navy dress can produce the same outcome as the LBD. Whether you choose to pair it with a blazer and mules for workwear attire or dress it up for an elegant cocktail event, just like the LBD the LND will be your favorite piece in your wardrobe if you give it a chance.
