In the early 18th century, black represented romance and artistry. As Ann Demeulemeester said of it, "Black is poetic. How do you imagine a poet?
In a bright yellow jacket? As the Victorian Era began, black transitions from a color of art to one of grief and mourning - widows were expected to wear black for at least four years - and also for service livery, as the uniform for maids.
In Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel published a picture of a short, simple black dress in American Vogue. It was calf-length, straight and decorated only by a few diagonal lines. Vogue called it "Chanel's Ford". Like the Model T , the little black dress was simple and accessible for women of all social classes. Vogue also said that the LBD would become "a sort of uniform for all women of taste". As Coco herself proclaimed, "I imposed black; it's still going strong today, for black wipes out everything else around.
The little black dress continued to be popular through the Great Depression , predominantly through its economy and elegance, albeit with the line lengthened somewhat. Hollywood 's influence on fashion helped the little black dress's popularity, but for more practical reasons: During World War II , the style continued in part due to widespread rationing of textiles, and in part as a common uniform accessorized for businesswear for civilian women entering the workforce.
The rise of Dior's "New Look" in the post-war era and the sexual conservatism of the s returned the little black dress to its roots as a uniform and a symbol of the dangerous woman.
Hollywood femme fatales and fallen women characters were portrayed often in black halter-style dresses in contrast to the more conservative dresses of housewives or more wholesome Hollywood stars. Synthetic fibres made popular in the s and s broadened the availability and affordability of many designs.
The generation gap of the s created a dichotomy in the design of the little black dress. A maxi dress and others are designed for those who are 5'3 and shorter. This is a standard sizing for women between size 0 and size This is for women who are sized 18 and above. How do you shop for dresses in black?
