We’ve all known for decades that the little black dress (that’s LBD to you and me) has been a wardrobe staple for women the world over, the perfect outfit that makes you look fab whether you keep it plain and simple or glam it up.
Now it seems that the literary world has acknowledged that the LBD really is essential – and the abbreviation is one of 2,000 new words and phrases to make it into the latest edition of the Oxford Dictionary of English!
The LBD, made famous by screen legend Audrey Hepburn, was in questionable company with the addition of words like cheeseball – referring to a person with bad style – and bromance – an expression referring to a close relationship between men.
To celebrate the recognition of our best loved wardrobe outfit, here are some ideas for a new LBD for your wardrobe!
