‘Tis the season for the little black dress! The holiday season brings lots of parties and get-togethers, not to mention colder weather that makes us all gravitate toward darker colors.
The little black dress is a staple for many women and it provides such a fantastic blank canvas for creativity. You can add all kinds of different colors, patterns, textures, and shiny baubles to take your dress from boring black to casual, fancy, sexy, and beyond. Here are 9 ways you can accessorize your LBD for any occasion.
1. Bright Necklace
A bright necklace really pops against the background of a plain black dress!
2. Peplum Top
Completely change the look of your LBD by throwing a sleeveless white peplum top over it and adding a slim belt.
3. Add A Sweater
An oversized belted sweater, stylish hat and ankle booties are perfectly casual for fall.
A little leopard print adds both pattern and a bit of wild appeal to a plain LBD.
5. Statement Necklace & Leather
Leather adds the perfect amount of edge to any LBD, and with a statement necklace: perfection!
6. Pops Of Neon
Neon stands out no matter how you wear it, but on a black background it becomes the star of the show! Add a necklace, belt, shoes, or some combination of the three for a great bright look.
Dress your LBD down with brown! The look is laid-back but still very pulled together. A colored moto jacket is an unexpected touch.
8. Colored Shoes
When I’ve got a solid, neutral dress, my brain automatically pairs it with colored shoes. It’s a slam dunk way to bring a little fun to an otherwise uninteresting ensemble.
9. Nude Accessories
While I may automatically reach for colored shoes, don’t forget the power of NUDE. If your dress is a total knockout on its own OR if you’re a little on the petite side and need to visually elongate your legs, then a good pair of nude shoes are a great bet!
