The little black dress is a classic staple piece that offers so much versatility. Let’s be honest, a timeless dress like this one wouldn’t have evolved all the way from the 60s till now if it wasn’t so flexible. While there are several ways to style your LBD, here are just four simple ways to switch it up depending on the occasion.
First, you can always keep it simple and formal with a pair of heels and jewelry. This option really puts the focus on the dress with the choice of accessories to add some pops of color based on your preference. For layering, you can add your choice of a blazer. If you wish to keep it neutral you can always just add gold or silver jewelry to accessorize.
Option two involves a more bold look for a possible night out, whether it is a dinner date or night with friends. A leather or denim jacket are great tops to layer with an LBD as they can make your dress more casual, yet still trendy. You can always dress up your casual layers on top with a pair of heels, or booties on the bottom for this look. Again, jewelry or even your favorite handbag is always a great choice to help accessorize and add some more elements of style with your LBD.
While this may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to your LBD, pairing it with your favorite pair of white tennis shoes and sunglasses offers a casual comfortable look. Don’t be afraid to layer with this as well, whether it is a cardigan or a light jacket.
Lastly, You can always style your LBD with a pair of sandals or your choice of wedges for a summer night out. The versatility of the LBD allows you to style it as you would your favorite sundress, so this is always an option.
If there is one thing that has not been made clear already, there is every reason to have a little black dress in your closet. A dress that can be worn with a blazer and heels, or a denim jacket and tennis shoes, offers the kind of functionality you need when building your capsule wardrobe.
