A little black dress (LBD) is a black evening or cocktail dress, cut simply and often quite short. Fashion historians ascribe the origins of the little black dress to the 1920s designs of Coco Chanel and Jean Patou intended to be long-lasting, versatile, affordable, accessible to the widest market possible and in a neutral colour. 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.
In this way, the Alinio black block heel by In·a·grüv is considered the "LBD of shoes". You can dress it up or down with any choice of a dozen accessories to match your wardrobe. So how is it so versatile? The magic lies in the soles which have grooves built into them (hence the company name In•a•grüv) that the accessories easily slip into. These special grooves allow for effortless placement and removal of the accessories so that they can change to match any outfit you put on. As a result, In•a•grüv is a sandal you can stylishly wear from daytime to playtime with a multitude of trend-setting styles and colors making it the ultimate wardrobe favorite. It truly is "Little black dress of shoes".
