A little black dress (LBD) is a black evening or cocktail dress, cut simply and often quite short, with little decoration, and useful for nearly any occasion. It is minimal to call attention to the wearer without distracting.
Little black dress(多译作“小黑裙”)指外形简洁、裁剪较短的黑色晚礼服或酒会礼服，装饰很少，各类场合都适宜穿着。不扎眼但又能吸引别人注意。
Fashion historians ascribe the origins of the little black dress to the 1920s designs of Coco Chanel, intended to be long-lasting, versatile, affordable, accessible to the widest market possible and in a neutral color. Its ubiquity is such that it is often simply referred to as the "LBD."
The "little black dress" is considered essential to a complete wardrobe by many women and fashion observers, who believe it a "rule of fashion" that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion: for example, worn with a jacket and pumps for daytime business wear or with more ornate jewelry and accessories for evening.
