Why the little black dress is a classic of the Parisian wardrobe?🖤 Fashion historians attribute the “invention of the little black dress to Coco Chanel in the 1920s. After the Great Depression, Chanel wanted to propose simple and affordable clothing for all women. The black color was perfect in a period when textiles and fabrics were rationed as women could be elegant without spending that much.

In 1926 Vogue published a drawing of a simple black dress in crêpe de Chine by Coco Chanel with a string of pearls as the only accessory. The publication referred to this little black dress as “Chanel’s Ford” meaning that it was simple and accessible to all women. Years later, celebrities like Audrey Hepburn’s, dressed in a simple but elegant little black dress by Givenchy in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, contributed to the popularity of this simple dress.

Today, the little black dress is considered essential to complete a French woman’s wardrobe. As a “rule of fashion”, it is believed that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down, alone or with other accessories depending on the occasion.
