Obviously black dresses have been around forever; however, the LBD fashion staple we all know and love today was established almost one hundred years ago (1926) by the one and only Coco Chanel. In October 1926 Vogue published Chanel’s little black dress design sketch, stating that it would “become sort of a uniform for all women of taste.” How right were they?!

Buying a LBD as a Conscious Consumer

Becoming a more conscious consumer can make shopping a little more difficult but just because you have decided to try and avoid purchasing fast-fashion pieces, does not mean you have to miss out on all of the classic fashion staples. Many ethical and sustainable brands create beautiful versions of these classics! 

In fact, you could make the case that dressing in mostly classic fashion staples is the simplest way to maintain a slow sustainable wardrobe.
