Combine the credit crunch with environmental concerns and a desire for fashion and you have conditions that are a perfect storm for an eco fashion basic in the form of the little black dress.
The LBD has mythical status among the fashion conscious, but now, it makes even more sense. A number of eco-friendly materials and fashionable styles as well as affordable pricing--less than $100--are pushing the little black dress onto the hangers of frugal fashionistas everywhere.
Implications - Black is one of the most versatile colors when it comes to fashion and dresses ooze feminine appeal. These two facts combined with the new world of wallet-friendly and eco conscious options sheds light on how the little black dress we've known and loved for so long, won't be leaving racks anytime soon.
