A Timeless Classic: the little black dress

Mckelligon Canyon
Situated inside on the eastern side of the Franklin Mountains, Mckelligon Canyon is not only a destination for popular rock-climbing and outdoor recreational adventures; it is also an area imbued with Indigenous roots with Spanish colonial history connecting Mexico and the United States via the border town of El Paso. The desert canyon walls and scenic views of Mckelligon Canyon are sources of inspiration and the perfect setting for styling and accessorizing a timeless classic wardrobe piece: the little black dress. From casual to chic and vintage to elegance, the scenery of the trails, the historical features of the canyon and the outdoors amphitheater accentuate the versatility of the little black dress. The popularity of the little black dress stemming from the simple albeit elegant designs of Coco Chanel served as an inspiration to style four distinct black dresses with different patterns, fabrics, and lengths. From a casual wear on a sunny afternoon to an elegant look for evening date at an outdoor amphitheater, the little black dress is a versatile, timeless, and an accessible piece that is essential to complete a woman’s wardrobe.
