Easy Tips To Accessorize A Little Black Dress
The little black dress is an essential for every gal's wardrobe. That being said, how to accessorize the little black dress can be a dilemma. Here are some easy tips to accessorize a little black dress that will give you a quick way to take it from day into night, play into work and plain into dazzling.
Kick Up Your Heels
First step, think about and select shoes that are "fitting" for "stepping out" for your event! The little black dress can change in a moment depending on the shoes you wear with it! Flip flops with attitude or brightly colored heels can both turn a little black dress into a completely different outfit! Find a shoe that will meet the needs of your event and kick it into your outfit! Wear our Little Black Dress (LBD) to the library with a pair of flashy flip flops! When you are done there, slip on a pair of bright blue pumps and you are on your way to dinner with your sweetheart! Casual pumps can make it work for the office and parent/teacher conferences! The perfect shoes are any shoe!
Beads, Baubles And Bling
The next step in getting your LBD set for your day is to get your jewelry gathered up! Simple hoops work great with those flip flops at the library, while a silver and pearl drop earring will dress it up to go out on the town. Carry your look forward by selecting either a metal tone or a matching bead color. This will help to simplify the transition between day and night. Keep a small jewelry bag in your purse or tote to keep your extra set of jewelry handy. Sometimes having it with you means you won't have to make a trip home for jewelry! Wearing a LBD sundress for a birthday party for the neighbor is no problem when you change earrings and shoes and head off to Girls' Night Out!
Topping It Off
Another easy way to accessorize a LBD is to top it off with a cropped cardigan, shawl or blazer. A bright print shawl gives it a fun and festive feel while a grey blazer takes it into the boardroom. Later that night, slip on a shrug and off to dinner you go! The mood of the jacket can set the look. My favorite way to crank it up for a fun night is to slip on a zebra shrug! It's a fun addition to a basic LBD....add a pop of color with some bright blue heels, royal blue bracelets and earrings and you are set! A white cropped cardigan with some silver hoops and white sandals takes the LBD into the supermarket in style. No problem running into the kid's teacher! What a change a jacket can make!
It's In The Bag!
Last, but not least is the easiest way of all to accessorize your LBD! Grab a bag! There are many looks and styles of handbags that will change the LBD into the perfect dress for any occasion. Whether a sequined clutch, large golden bucket bag or a zebra print blinged out tote, the purse can be the only thing you change and make an entirely different fashion statement.
When you invest in handbags that go with other outfits, take a moment and consider what it will do when paired with your favorite LBD! Don't be shy with color or prints! A bright solid or leopard print will each put a different spin on your outfit!
Tie It All Together
Whether you accessorize with one item or more, the accessories make the outfit fit into any occasion! It is essential to plan your accessories and make the most out of your LBD! The only drawback is you may save a lot of money by getting many looks for one simple dress!! Take the time to invest in some variable accessories and have fun working out the different looks!! You will be glad you did! Good luck and good accessories!
