This Sunday celebrates legendary French Fashion Designer Coco Chanel’s 130th Birthday and here at jones + jones HQ we plan to pay homage to the Little Black Dress icon this weekend! The LBD was originally made popular in the 1920′s by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel and has since gone on to become the epitome of fashion. Of course black dresses existed long before this time but until it wasn’t until Chanel introduced black as a fashion colour that it became popular (before this black was typically seen as a sign of mourning!) Chanel intended for the LBD to be versatile, long lasting and accessible to the widest possible audience; she believed any woman could wear one regardless of her social status or size!
Not only is a LBD flattering on all woman it can also take you from function to function whilst keeping you looking effortlessly chic! Here at jones + jones we stock a variety of LBD’s and we have one for all occasions. Our newest LBD is the oh-so-sophistacted Valerie dress, with luxurious couture lace, a scalloped hem, nipped in waist and fitted pencil skirt, this dress ensures a chic silhouette and is the perfect dress to take you from Autumnal days to evenings.
If the Valerie dress doesn’t take your fancy then why not try the gorgeous new Vivienne Dress…with a sweetheart bodice, a full and flirty skirt and a daring deep ‘V’ back this dress is perfect for the party season upon us!
We also have the stunning new Laura dress which features matt sequins, a sheer fitted bodice and cap sleeves. This dress has the perfect amount of glitz!
Coco Chanel once said: “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” Once you’ve found the perfect LBD for you, you’ll certainly feel both classy and fabulous! The jones + jones team plan to celebrate Chanel’s birthday in style and what better way to do so than wearing our favourite little black jones + jones dresses this weekend..
With love, jones + jones team x
