The little black dress – the triumphal march of the emancipated woman.
In the beginning of the last century it was absolutely unthinkable to wear black dresses
for reasons of fashion, as it was the colour for maids and mourning people. If you had enough money, you would have a tailor make colourful dresses for you – but in black? – Never! But tastes change and in the middle of the 1920’s, a certain designer entered the world of fashion; she revolutionised the interiors of women’s wardrobes forever: Coco Chanel. Her little black dress was suddenly all the rage because it was comfortable, had hardly any creases and it was – and still is – very elegant.
The perfect dress for the new, emancipated woman of the 20’s. A woman, who takes her life in her own hands. A woman, who dares to live free from the constricting corsages. 100 years later, little black dresses have found their place in the world of fashion. Almost every women’s fashion designer has at least one black piece in his latest collection. The same applies to Ana Alcazar.
As popular as ever: the black dress.
In the online store of Ana Alcazar you will find plenty of modern takes on the black classic. Because black dresses look very elegant, they have become an indispensable part of every woman’s evening wear collection. For festive occasions, a black cocktail dress from the black label line
is the perfect choice: combine it with a colourful knit jacket
and matching shoes to add some colour and voilà – you’re always up-to-date. Ladies wearing black lace dresses by Ana Alcazar appear very enticing and sexy. And who doesn’t remember the divine Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”?
Even today, her black, sleeveless sheath dress
that her character Holly Golightly is wearing, is regarded as the embodiment of the little black dress and it is also (in a contemporary version) available here at Ana Alcazar.
Black dresses – true all-rounders for every occasion.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be a ball or a cocktail party. You can wear a black dress confidently at many other occasions: Ana Alcazar also offers great black dresses for your free-time or your normal day at work.
For example, you can wear comfortable black tunic dresses with a pair of jeans; they are available here, in our online shop up to size 18
. And in winter, the perfect choice for your next business appointment could be one of our warm, black Ajour knit dresses, combined with high boots. Forget the widows and the maids – stylistically- confident women can wear a well-combined black dress at any occasion. Thank Coco! Thank Audrey!
