Little Black Dress

Created by Coco Chanel in 1926, the Little Black Dress has been a wardrobe staple ever since. It's popularity in part down to the fact that it can be styled in so many ways, dressed up or dressed down.

When offered the chance to style the Copenhagen Dress by up and coming ethical label Urban Buzz, I chose to dress it with simple accessories.

As with most LBD's, the style is in the detail. This one offers sumptuous to the touch silk, sweet little capped sleeves, has an empire cut so that the wide bow belt sits snugly under the bust and flairs out to a feminine swirl.
