Accessorizing Your Favorite LBD (Little Black Dress)!
August 8, 2012 Leave a Comment
The wonderful thing about the little black dress is that it doesn’t draw attention to itself and looks like a different dress on each person. Accessories such as jewelry, scarves, and shoes help set each dress apart. Its best to accessorize according to the occasion, so choose accessories that accentuate your assets to stand out from the rest.
Divide your little black dresses into two categories; those that have their own focal point, like an intricate neckline, sleeves,or bead work, and the plain and simple ones. Dresses with their own focal points need very little accessorizing. A dash of color for the daytime or a hint of sparkle with jewelry for the nights are all that you need to get going.
A black dress is basically a blank canvas for any type of accessories you want to wear or create a look for. Choosing a statement necklace for deep V-cuts and strapless dresses enhances the look and keeps the focus on you rather than the dress, especially if its a staple in your wardrobe. A one shoulder dress is terrific paired with statement earrings and a great stand-out ring; this style will attract all eyes too you as you.
Another really great take is if you’ve got a slightly higher-necked dress or a dress that makes you look a little bit slimming, you could add a long necklace. A long necklace can really break up the body vertically and make you look slimmer and taller, which is always a nice bonus of wearing a little black dress. Spruce things up by adding a metallic or colored fashion belt that will accentuate your waist and add a touch of fun.
Last but not least, if you wear your black dress to work, a professional-looking way of adding color and intrigue is to add a coloured suit jacket or wrap. It is really important to create contrast and boldness with your dress in order to stay current and for upcoming seasons.
The little black dress is a woman’s oldest friend in the world of fashion. As you can see, it can be worn everywhere from weddings to the office. The trick is to know how to make the black dress as versatile as you are!
