Looking for the not-so-typical Audrey Hepburn little black dress? Well Holly Golightly, have we got the dress for you?!
The Cage dress in black stretch cotton is the perfect LBD to add to your wardrobe and here’s why:
This dress defines the mod, classic, chic look Audrey popularized in the early 1950s. Audrey Hepburn, in collaboration with famed designer Hubert de Givenchy, defined “the LBD” with the wardrobe design for the 1954 film Sabrina. It was this film that marked the beginning of an era of crisp lines, simplistic colors, and perfectly tailored shapes. As shoe designer Manolo Blahnik describes as “the most important look of the twentieth century.” Givenchy also designed Audrey’s wardrobe forBreakfast at Tiffany’s, Funny Face, Charade, Paris When it Sizzles, and How to Steal a Million. Needless to say, the fashion in these films remains timeless. Therefore, the LBD is always “in” fashion and a necessary investment to your personal wardrobe.

The neckline of this dress is absolutely my favorite part! The pseudo boat neck is outlined in vertical stripes across the neck. It’s flattering, and conservative without being boring. The box pleat skirt lays flat across the waistline and flares in full at the hem. The length of the Cage Dress falls just at or above the knee. It’s perfect for those gals who may shy away from shorter style. This shape is both flattering among flat-chested petites and busty, curvy girls. Plus, bonus points for pockets!

Working in the dress shop, I am often asked by customers, “Yes. It’s pretty, but wear would I wear this?” The answer is simple. EVERYWHERE. LIFE. To a wedding, the grocery store, a date, a cocktail party, the bar, a parade, a concert, a family gathering…get the picture? It’s a black, cotton dress. Accessorize it anyway you want. Wear it with tights, bootsand a cardigan. Punk Rock it up with some combat boots and a leather jacket. Pair it with simple, comfy flats for an easy everyday look. OR channel your inner Audrey with a pair of classic pumps and pearls….
