From the Little Black Dress through to the ManoloBlahnik stiletto, read on for our lowdown on the most iconic fashion pieces ever created. You’ll want to wear these styles forever…
Chanel’s The Little Black Dress (LBD)
Is there another fashion piece that’s as iconic as the Little Black Dress? Originally designed by Coco Chanel in 1926, the LBD was famously worn by Audrey Hepburn in the classic 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s and has gone on to become one of the most iconic fashion pieces ever created.
It’s fair to say that the LBD is a staple item in any woman’s wardrobe. What makes the LBD so great is the sheer versatility it offers. It can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion – and it’s sure to make you look elegant, wherever you choose to wear it.
Burberry’s Trench Coat
Featuring breathable, water-resistant ‘gabardine’ fabric, Burberry’s classic trench coat is one of the most iconic fashion pieces of all time. The success of the design is perhaps unsurprising: it’s extremely elegant, whilst also being supremely practical.
Calvin Klein’s Slip Dress
Underwear as outwear, anyone? After originally being made as a piece to be worn underneath dresses, the slip dress was transformed by Calvin Klein in the 1990s and famously popularized by the likes of Madonna and Kate Moss. This racy little number is now a modern day classic that’s an essential for summer.
The Moon Boot
The Moon Boot first became popular during the 1970s and quickly went on to become the footwear of choice for everyone from astronauts through to winter holidaymakers. Featuring a distinctive thickly padded design, Moon Boots are also famous for their colourful nylon fabrics and distinctive branding, making them both equally stylish and practical.

The Chanel Suit
The Chanel suit is certainly one of the most iconic fashion pieces ever created – and it literally changed the way women dressed when it became popular during the 1950s and 1960s. The Chanel Suit managed to appear both feminine and powerful, with a simple stripped-down silhouette that has been carried through time.
The ManoloBlahnik stiletto
It’s true to say that it took a little while before the stiletto achieved lasting popularity amongst women around the globe. Having first appeared in the 1930s and then the 1950s, it wasn’t until ManoloBlahnik re-introduced the shoe in 1971 that the stiletto gained much traction in a world that was then dominated by chunky platform boots. Of course it’s now an iconic fashion piece that’s synonymous with feminine elegance and style, making it an essential item for any woman to own.
