Question: What are some ways to wear a little black dress?
Answer: A little black dress is a staple in every girl’s closet, but that everyday LBD can sometimes grow tired after you’ve worn it out a few times. The good news is that there are plenty of simple and inexpensive ways to refresh your beloved little black dress, from using accessories to adding color accents to your outfit. Read on for some tips on transforming a simple black dress into an eye catching outfit to remember!
The statement necklace
Bold, bright necklaces can bring attention to an outfit like nothing else. If you want the necklace to be the focal point of your look, go for one in a fun color. If you’d rather bring attention to the dress, find a necklace with an interesting shape. Statement necklaces are a quick accessory to throw on before heading out the door, and they can really work towards bringing your little black dress to the next level.
Pairing your LBD with a pair of fun heels or bright flats will add a pop of color and take your dress to a whole new level. Deep purples and royal blues are in for spring this year, and pastel hues are always the perfect way to add a flirty touch to that simple black dress. But if you’re feeling especially daring, wearing your LBD with red pumps (along with red lips, of course) is an instant way to turn heads for girls’ night out!
Since you’re going to need something to carry the night’s essentials in, a patterned wristlet is a great addition to your LBD, as it functions as a purse and is also an accent to your outfit. Studded detail wristlets and clutches work well with black, or try a monogrammed designer wristlet with a cool graphic.
A classic trick for accentuating your waist while also calling attention to a black dress is to cinch a belt just above your hips. Cinched belts are cute, feminine, and they possess a very flattering slimming effect. Go for a skinny belt if you want a crisp, professional look; or pick a wide belt for going out at night. Either way, belts are another quick and easy add-on to your outfit—and a great belt will really pull your look together.
