The little black dress is a wardrobe staple. Great for any occasion from a cocktail party to a formal work event, it is one of the most versatile fashion items any woman can ever own.
You can even wear your little black dress during party season, especially if you take the time to jazz it up and get it to look really party-ready. Below you will find some simple ideas to help you do just that.
Add some Jewellery
One of the simplest ways to ensure that your LBD is party-ready is to add some jewellery to make sure that it sparkles and shines. If you want the dress itself to look a little less plain, then a gemstone brooch would be a good choice, but if you want to keep things simple and elegant, a gemstone ring or bracelet from a store like Brilliant Earth would work well. Often, when it comes to jewellery less is more, but if you’re wearing a very plain, elegant black dress, you can afford to be a little more maximalist with your jewellery choices.
Add a sparkling ribbon
Another really good way to add some extra glitz and glam to a little black dress for party season is to simply wrap a sequined ribbon around your waist. Not only will it make your waist look smaller, but it will give your outfit a real celebration feel.
Black ribbon is good if you want to keep it subtle, but using brighter colours like pink and teal can work well if you want to stand out from the crowd a little more, too.
Contrast with the shoes
Fuschia shoes with a little black dress never fail to make for a striking style. The same goes for wearing red tights with a little black dress or blue or green or whatever you feel gets you into the party mood the best. It’s simple, but adding an unexpected pop of colour really can take an LBD to the next level.
Carry a cute clutch
When it comes to party season,t her clutch bag is the perfect accessory. It’s small and compact, so it doesn’t get in the way of the rest of your outfit, and you can absolutely use it to make a statement. From sequined clutches to jewelled clutches to brightly coloured leather clutches, you can change the style o your black dress to suit any occasion by carrying the right clutch.
Go bold with your lipstick
A bold red or pink lipstick will make even the simplest of black dresses pop and look amazing on you, so start experimenting with the best bold shades to match your skin tone before you head off to the next big party.
Go big with your hair
A big fancy updo screams party time and it gives your LBD an added elegance that will make it shine.
As you can see, it’s really easy to jazz up your LBD and give it that extra something it needs to really shine during the busy party season.
