That perfect little dress.

Where it came from, how to look for a perfect Little Black Dress.
Every woman’s closet reflects her personality. It may have colour, may have no colour, but they all have one thing in common – the little black dress. It is the most versatile and eternal piece of clothing ever made. It was intended by the one and only - Coco Chanel, who published a photo of the dress in Vogue in 1926, which was a big breakthrough for the dress. Through years, the little black dress has been transformed. In 1950’s Christian Dior invented a “new look” for the dress, he made it a little bit sexier than the previous versions, and the dress became a must -have item in every Hollywood star closet. If we are talking about the little black dress, we have to mention the woman who epitomized Coco’s invention- Audrey Hepburn’s character in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”-Holly Golighty. The dress became unbeatable, every woman wanted to be Holly, and wear that perfect little dress. However not a lot of people know how to choose the right dress for them. As we all know, every woman’s body is different, she may have small waist and big hips, or long torso, and wider shoulder. Everyone is different, that’s why we need some tips to help us with choosing the perfect dress. First of all woman need to define what their body shape is, then knowing what is right for them, go shopping and look for the dress that is right for them, and don’t get frustrated if it will take a little time, it is better to invest some time in finding a good dress than buy something that will make your body look unpleasant. So ladies if you are:
HOURGLASS SHAPE: women whose hips and bust are almost the same length need to choose the dress that has deep neck line, and accentuates waist. The good choice would be an A-line dress.
TRIANGLE SHAPE: women, who have wider shoulders and big bust but have slim legs, need to choose the dress that drapes at the top, and shows off your slim legs at the bottom.
SPOON SHAPE: women who have wide hips and slim upper body, need to choose the dress that will show off their slim parts, and wider skirt that will hide the spots that you don't want people to see.
RECTANGULAR SHAPE: woman whose upper body goes right into the hips, need to choose the dress that creates the illusion of waist. This includes the empire waist dresses that create a waistline and show off your bust.
So ladies, go shopping and have fun !
