Every woman has one, and it is her best friend. It is the little black dress that is perfect for unexpected dinner parties, weddings, funerals and every social event under the sun. Though every woman has a little black dress, there are some ways to spice up the way you wear it to make it seem new.
Add a belt. Especially if you have a classic sheath dress. Using a bright colored belt, or a neutral tone, is a great way to wear the little black dress with style.
Accessorize with the little black dress. Using something simple like an eye-catching clutch, or bold necklace, is a great way to wear the little black dress and show off your personality at the same time.
Wear a jacket with your little black dress to the office. It is a great way to dress up at the office without being inappropriate. This also makes it easy to transition from day to night if you are going out after work. Just take off the jacket and let your black dress shine.
Put on a pair of sassy, colorful shoes. Nothing makes a great pair of shoes stand out like wearing them with all black. Try a stunning pair of pink taffeta heels or a pair of satin maroon slides with any black dress.
Keep it simple. If you aren’t the type to accessorize or draw attention away from the beauty of your favorite dress, just throw on a pair of black shoes and simple make up. Audacity isn’t always the key to wearing the little black dress, and this is a good idea when attending a funeral or other sombre occasion.
Buy a little black dress with the idea that you can wear it many different ways. When shopping for the right dress, or a second or third one that you can dress up, keep in mind that creative cuts or ruffles or hemlines may make it more difficult to dress up or dress down this little black dress. Stick with simple sheaths that compliment your shape and you are on your way.
