Fashion historians ascribe the origins of the little black dress to the 1920’s designs of tastemakers Coco Chanel and Jean Patou. Intended to be long-lasting, versatile, and most importantly – complimentary, LBDs have become a wardrobe staple for women of all ages for nearly a century.
This garment’s adoration rings just as true here at BG, where you can find a plethora of black dresses for any occasion inside of our exclusive Noir concept shop on 2. Below, we’ve rounded up nine of the best in class LBDs to buy now.
