You just might have that one clothing item every fashion enthusiast swears by: the LBD, or little black dress. Black Dresses have been around since 1920s, and since then never ceased to leave the closets of women. It is so versatile you can wear it to virtually any affairs! You can dress it up or dress it down. And believe them when they say you can never go wrong with black dresses.
Let us take a look at the many ways you could wear the dress:
Add a touch of color – It can be any item with either bold or muted colors to counter the severity of black and to avoid looking like a Sicilian widow. Try a jewel-toned or sparkly clutch, a pair of bold red pumps, a bright yellow belt, or perhaps a beige scarf.
Accessorize – Black dresses can be accessorized with just about any types of accessories like layers of pearl for classy look, chunky coral or turquoise for a fun and playful look, or gold chains for polished office setting. Or wear one of those eye-catching vintage cocktail rings; it will look elegant with your little black dress.
Pair it with flats – Go casual for the weekend brunch with the girls. Slip on your black dress, adorn it with a candy-colored scarf, and wear a comfortable and cute pair of ballet flats. Flat shoes create a relaxed and carefree look to black dresses. Grab your big sunglasses and weekend bag, and you’re good to go.
Consider a little more coverage – A denim or tweed jacket, blazer, bolero, vest… these pieces can be worn over any types of black dress, be it classic or avant-garde. They can make a whole new statement with black dresses.
Go edgy – Short black dresses will look fabulously edgy by donning a pair of colorful tights with interesting pattern and low-cut boots or oxfords. This will make your dress pop.
Wear a turtleneck underneath – Since cold season is coming again, consider layering your clothes. For sheath black dresses, try wearing a thin turtleneck underneath.
Play with chic hats – Want to replicate the flirty and flattering look of continental charm? Then felt fedoras, cloches, and jaunty berets are your best bet. Match it with any black dresses, a pair of dark tights, and boots to exude an air of old world charisma.
You can use your imagination… or just wear it as is – You don’t need a fairy godmother, really. Your imagination is the key.
