Her Majesty the Little Black Dress is every girl’s best friend. It’s common knowledge that the little black dress looks good in any situation and is perfect for any occasion, so it’s not a surprise that many girls have at least one in their closet. As versatile as it can be, a black dress can look dull if always worn the same way, which is why you should always be on the lookout for fun and easy ways to dress it up. We’re here to help you do just that with these five easy tricks:
This is the simplest way to dress up your favorite black dress, and the best thing is – you can do it with any necklace you have in your jewelry box. Choker necklaces look great if your dress has a boat neckline, but even if the neckline is super-low cut, you can pull it off. Long necklaces with stunning pendants are a good choice too, or you can wear something with artificial gemstones in neon colors too. Of course, if you’re not a big fan of experimenting with different styles, a delicate string of pearls is a beautiful choice, and it always looks elegant.
Beautiful scarves and shawls
If you’re not a fan of necklaces but would still love to wear something around your neck or shoulders, shawls and scarves are your best friends. The best thing about them is that they’re very affordable and easy to find, they come in a variety of colors and materials, and you can choose from a seemingly endless pool of different knots the one that will be just right for you.
Accessories for the win
You don’t have to wear anything around your neck to dress up your little black dress – any other accessory will do the trick. Because black goes well with anything, you can wear your favorite bracelets and beautiful designer watches and look like a celebrity. If you prefer watches with metal bands, you can wear them instead of bracelets. Statement earrings and cocktail rings are also a good idea, especially if you have a favorite set, but if you’re a fan of minimalism above all, you can always choose a single brooch and rock the retro look like a pro.
For those with hourglass figures who like to show off their curves, belts are your best friends. The simpler your dress shape and design, the easier it will be for you to add a belt. You can even wear a simple black belt – it might not stand out too much, but it will emphasize your waist, and if it has an interesting buckle, it will catch everyone’s eye. If, on the other hand, you’re wearing another color – shoes, a bag, a scarf, or jewelry, you can always coordinate with the color of your belt.
Girls who put their comfort above fashion, cardigans and sweaters are here to save the day and allow you to have both. Form-fitting sweaters and oversized cardigans will allow you to stay warm and stylish at the same time. The best thing is – you can use them to dress up or dress down your LBD, and you can also choose either a neutral or brighter color without fear because both will look great when combined with the timeless elegance of a black dress.
If you love wearing black dresses, it might be a good idea to keep a few different ones in your closet, just in case. This way, you can reuse your favorite accessories and still look like a million dollars. Have a formal one that’s perfect for business meetings and formal lunches, and a flirty one that will look great on you on a night out with your friends or when you’re getting ready for a romantic dinner.
