Inspired by the tailored black uniforms of maids and shopgirls, Coco Chanel was credited for introducing the little black dress in the 1920s. Later dubbed "the cocktail dress" in the 1950s, the LBD is the epitome of chic, functionality, and versatility. In short, the LBD may be the most essential item in a woman's wardrobe.
