Why? Black is simple, and less distracting. You can wear a black dress without looking “too much”. And as a fashion designer and student, I prefer black when I work because it is less distracting.
This is a vintage dress from my mom. (Yes, really. She was always ahead of her time. She could pick anything in a newly-discovered shop from nowhere and put it on and everyone wants it)
I love the simplicity of a dress like this, I can just throw it on, zip it, and wear it to almost every occasion, from school to work or a dinner…
I don’t know who was the first to invent the little black dress, but I own that person a lot 🙂
(probably Coco Chanel?)
