One of our favorite designers….. Cushine et Ochs…. does the Little Black Dress in a elegant, classic example of a conservative dress…. with a sexy little twist. The middle cut outs give this dress the oomph factor… while the long sleeves and length give it the time-honored quality of what Coco herself…. intended the LBD to be all about. We feel the Chushine et Ochs would certainly qualify for the wardrobe essential and we are hoping that everyone of you girls has at least one LBD is your closet. If you don’t…. get out there and get a classic black dress that will stand the test of time.

For other uses, see Little Black Dress (disambiguation).
A little black dress is an evening or cocktail dress, cut simply. Fashion historiansascribe the origins of the little black dress to the 1920s designs of Coco Chanel and Jean Patou intended to be long-lasting, versatile, affordable, accessible to the widest market possible and in a neutral colour. Its ubiquity is such that it is often simply referred to as the “LBD”.
The “little black dress” is considered essential to a complete wardrobe by many women and fashion observers, who believe it a “rule of fashion” that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion: for example, worn with a jacket and pumps for daytime business wear or with more ornate jewelry and accessories for evening. Because it is meant to be a staple of the wardrobe for a number of years, the style of the little black dress ideally should be as simple as possible.
