Love the timeless, classic beauty of a little black dress, but want nothing to do with those fast fashion versions that fall apart after one or two wears? You’re in the right place.

More sustainable little black dresses you’ll love

True sustainable fashion rejects fleeting trends in favour of timeless styles—and what could be more enduring than the LBD (little black dress)?

The little black dress has been a wardrobe staple ever since Coco Chanel first showed a range of plain black dresses in 1926, and later, the Givenchy gown that Audrey Hepburn wore in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which is often referenced as the epitome of the little black dress.

The quintessential black dress has a simple yet elegant silhouette, often knee-length or shorter, and can work for a variety of occasions depending on how you accessorise it. It’s a key item in capsule wardrobes for exactly this reason.

For parties, dinners and everything in between, a little black dress will look great with statement jewellery—or pearls, as Hepburn did, plus a clutch bag, and heels. Or you could opt for a denim jacket and trainers with the same dress for a more casual situation.

So, in celebration of the style that never gets old, here are some of our editors’ favourite little black dresses from “Good” and “Great” rated brands.

New initiative helps businesses make sustainable packaging choices

New initiative helps businesses make sustainable packaging choices

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is collaborating with sustainability software company Empauer to offer a comprehensive life cycle assessment (LCA) package for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

The aim is to support SMEs in making informed and science-based decisions when selecting packaging materials. This can be a challenging process, something the AIP observed in its SME training programs, where it identified a pressing need for affordable and customised LCA solutions that simplify the sometimes complex business of undertaking sustainability assessments for packaging design.

The report part of the package can be utilised for internal decisions, including selection of packaging materials and components. It can also help SMEs navigate the shift towards more sustainable alternatives within the business.

The LCA Decision Package is designed to provide AIP members and the wider industry with access to the latest tools and expertise, enabling them to reduce their environmental footprint and make responsible choices in line with global sustainability goals.

The AIP said that the main benefit to SMEs in using the LCA Decision Package was that users did not have to understand all the complexities of LCAs, as they will be provided with the comparison information and assistance to understand the environmental impact for each packaging material choice, depending on the parameters they select.

Interested SMEs can complete and submit an online expression of interest form and a brief questionnaire by visiting
