A little black dress is traditional, but it doesn’t have to be ordinary. Try incorporating one of these 5 easy style tricks the next time you break out your go-to LBD.
Even if your go-to LBD doesn’t have a collar, you can easily create a detachable one. Try this ready-made DKNY Embellished Silk-Blend Twill Collar ($95) or get crafty and pile on the sequins and rhinestones yourself for a glam effect. Seen here: Kiernan Shipka in a Miu Miu dress at the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in Los Angeles.
In a hurry but still want to jazz your traditional black dress up a bit? Simply add a statement necklace. A LBD is slimming enough, but an eye-catching necklace concentrates the focus on your face rather than your trouble spots. Take a cue from Georgia May Jagger, who doubled up on two Thomas Sabo necklaces at the jewelry line’s collection launch in London.
3. Colorful or Printed Coat
Even Arizona nights get cold. Instead of wearing your usual dark monochromatic outerwear, opt for an eye-popping print or bright contrasting color. Here, Alicia Vikander wears an emerald Minimarket Starship Coat ($515).
4. Layered Button Down
Stay warm and put a playful twist on the classic LBD by wearing a button-down underneath. Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor dresses up her figure-flattering LBD by layering a cute heart-shaped button-down underneath.
5. Cinch It Together
There’s no better time of year for metallic than the holidays. Show off your curves by cinching your LBD with a classic metallic belt. Michelle Dockery knows how to work the look in her Stella McCartney gown.
