Wear One Dress 5 Ways

Buying versatile pieces that you can don over and over again is something you should consider on your next shopping trip. One of the timeless garments every woman should own is a little black dress (LBD). Purchasing one or two styles can be a lasting investment. Once you find a simple silhouette, play around with the accessories to change the looks up each time. Throw on some sparkles, a dash of color or play with your handbag and shoe pairings to create an outfit for every occasion.

Here are some of my favorite ideas on how to dress up one LBD, 5 different way:

For the Office

Ditch the boring beige pant suit and go for a feminine workday alternative by pairing a little black dress with a blush colored office ensemble like a blazer and pumps. Add some sparkling interest with minimal jewelry in blush and black tones to keep the outfit cohesive, finishing off with a neutral handbag for balance.

Party Time

Celebration time! Dress up your favorite little black dress with a sparkling statement necklace and glamorously jeweled heels paired with an equally festive clutch. Every party needs a little lipstick – go for a bold bright hue to liven things up!

Vacation Style

Punch it up a bit with a coral beaded statement necklace and a swipe of peach lipstick to match. Paired with a timeless vacation staple, such as a straw fedora and this dress will instantly feel more casual. Fly to your tropical destination in this comfortable dress or wear it out to dinner and drinks on the beach. This look is so versatile – it’s all about making the accessories work for the occasion.

Girl’s Night Out

Who’s up for a girl’s night out? Go for a rocker chic look by pairing your little black dress with a colorful leather motorcycle-jacket and studded accessories for a night on the town! Mixing in hot pink leopard print heels brings a girly edge to the whole look without going overboard. Cheers girls!

Opening Night at the Opera

It’s a fancy occasion and a little black dress fits the bill perfectly! A 5 star dinner and box seats at the opera deserve a bit of classy perfection that can truly only be achieved with a little black dress. Paired with gold statement tassel earrings and sheer detailed heels and complete the look with a fitted royal blue trench.

I love jackets and pair them up with everything. I have them in every color, style and length. Love to make different looks with my LBD by switching up the jacket then the shoes, jewelry and purse to match.
