The little black winter dress will be our best friend: a passepartout for day or evening

Little black winter dress

The little black dress in French style, the iconic and unmistakable one by Yves Saint Laurent returns: instructions for use.

A dress that cannot be more Parisian than that, but also more sixty than that: the black and white sheath dress returns in its unique allure, where sensuality is combined with rigor. The little black dress made famous by Yves Saint Laurent and worn for the first time by actress Catherine Deneuve in Luis Buñuel’s film Bella di Giorno in 1967, a dress that almost in accordance with the plot of the film already knew of a cultural revolution and sexual now imminent. With the appropriate variations or perhaps even more classic than ever, this iconic dress returns from the catwalks to our wardrobe.

The little black dress with long sleeves: an evergreen in the history of fashion

When we think of the little black dress, the variants that we can imagine can be many: models with wide décolleté, enveloping, tight or even in a square version that leave the arms uncovered, but if we go back in time there is an iconic model, which with its long sleeves also goes hand in hand with the needs of the winter season.

This is the little black dress with shirt collar and white cuffs, just up to the knee, signed for the first time by Yves Saint Laurent: a piece of black and white fabric that over time has never stopped being revised and corrected, reinterpreted , even in sexier variants such as the crotch ones proposed in autumn / winter 2021 by Valentino and Giambattista Vialli . And in a season where black and white, to be worn together or in a total look, are among the most sought-after shades, this little fashion masterpiece could only return to being the protagonist.

How to match the little black dress in winter: the shoes to choose

A peculiarity of the little black dress is that it is very versatile : whether it is the most essential model with only white collar and cuffs, or those with a rouched shirt in sight, as in the variant proposed by Valentino, the shoes and the bag can be the ones details that can allow us to take advantage of this key dress in different looks. For example on a rainy day, why not wear it with a tote bag, a pair of rain boots and a trench coat, for a casual chic office look but ready while waiting for the aperitif at the end of the day.

– Dizzying heels, ankle boots or cuissardes with plateau are the perfect shoes to focus on an elegant and sophisticated look , perhaps with a pair of rhinestone socks if the evening is informal, with classic flesh-colored socks and a precious décolléte if the evening is informal. atmosphere is lounge and classy.
