Three Ways to Wear...a Little Black Dress

 

The little black dress is a wardrobe essential- it's the one we turn to in an emergency, when that new one-shouldered number doesn't look quite as good on as it did in the store. The little black dress can always be relied upon (along with those trusty stilettos) to get you through any party, wedding or last minute night on the town. But your good old LBD doesn't need to be boring- we've got three ways you can mix it up so everyone will think you've got a Carrie Bradshaw sized closet of classic dresses no matter what the occasion!

 

It's In The Accessories

 

Whilst there's no doubt that they're a classic, little black dresses can risk being a little boring if you're not careful. To avoid this, plan your accessories carefully and make sure they complement your dress perfectly. If your little black dress is plain, team it with a chunky gold necklace or an on-trend velvet choker to give it an edge. For dresses that have a lot of features, choose subtle jewellery like a finely linked necklace that will let your dress do the talking.

 

Layer Up

 

Your favourite little black dress can be transformed with some simple layering (shh, it's our secret)! Pair it with an on-trend waterfall coat for an instant glam look- this can change a plain bodycon dress into a knock-out outfit that will be sure to slay. For a more casual style, add a denim jacket and an oversized scarf to your LBD along with some knee high boots and a large tote bag. Simple yet bang on-trend.

 

Chain Reaction

 

Chain bras are so hot right now and are the perfect way to liven up your little black dress! If your dress has a V neckline or mesh panel detailing, wear a chain bralet underneath for a gorgeous stand-out look. The Leander Chain Bra will give your outfit a textured look and add a bit of sparkle to your LBD.

 

Follow these tips and you'll be able to rock your little black dress time after time for any occasion!
