The perfect little black dress

In 2012, UK laundry specialists Dr. Beckmann commissioned an online survey of over 2,000 women and found it takes approximately 30 hours to find the perfect Little Black Dress “LBD”.

30 hours! So why do women put themselves through 30 hours of shopping for one dress?

Because we enjoy it?

Because we know the end result is worth the search?

Or because we know the little black dress is an essential item for every woman’s wardrobe and finding the perfect one is like a rite of passage.

The little black dress (LBD)is a well-established fashion icon, originating from the 1920s designs of Coco Chanel and Jean Patou. There is a perfectly good reason why the LBD has its reputation, the neutral colour and typically simple designs allow the LBD to be long-lasting, versatile, flattering and affordable for most women. It is a classic, elegant, and sophisticated dress which is suitable for all body shapes, skin tones and formal occasions.
