Nowadays the little black dress is ubiquitous in women’s wardrobes. It’s considered a staple, but it hasn’t always been that way.

Little Black Dress is an exhibition at Savannah College of Art and Design Museum of Art that “explores the evolution of a definitive yet democratic style that, for more than a century, has embodied the shifting social tides of the modern world.” The show, curated by Vogue contributing editor Andr√© Leon Talley, contains approximately 80 examples.

Little Black Dress closes in a month on January 27. If you can’t see it before it ends, there’s a book available for purchase.
