8 Ways to Accessorize the Little Black Dress

Updated on May 2, 2016

The Little Black Dress (LBD): Who Doesn't Have One?


Eight Simple Ways to Accessorize the Little Black Dress

You can match anything with black. Black is the color that looks good almost universally. A little black dress is something you can wear on any occasion. With the right accessories, it can go a long way.

Being creative and using one's imagination is the key. A plain black dress could turn from simple to glamorous, from ordinary to unique. Even if one is not up-to-date with any of the latest fashion trends, this black dress will never go out of style and will always stay in line with elegance and beauty.

This article is about the accessories you can add to the black dress to make it fit any occasion. I have listed a few items that go with any black dress that you could wear to any event.

Accessories for Any Black Dress

Accessories for the LBD


White Blazer


1. White Blazer (for a Meeting)

Match any black dress with a white blazer and you are perfectly dressed for a meeting with your boss. Black is always a corporate look.

Big Statement Necklace


2. Big Necklace (for a Wedding)

Pairing your LBD with the latest blings-blings of necklace and earrings will make you look dashing.

3. Red Clutch or Satchel (for a Birthday or Other Fun Outings

Red is a celebratory color, good for birthdays or other fun events. Dress up your LBD with a dash of red. Red satchels and mini wallets look bright and fun against the black.

4. Trendy Hat (for a Costume or Halloween Party)

Go crazy with hats and headbands. Get wild and funky! Wear any big or small hat or a cute headband to top it off.

Red Heels in Trend


5. Red Heels (for a Night Out)

Red goes hand-in-hand with black, and a pair of red heels will never go out of style.


6. Colored Scarf (for Any Occasion)

Pair the LBD with a scarf in any color or pattern. Throw a glittery scarf on after work and you're ready to go out on the town.
