The Little Black Dress or the LBD is one outfit that will happily find its way in every woman’s wardrobe because black is the one gorgeous color that makes women of all sizes and shapes look fantastic. Most women have no trouble choosing that perfect LBD. However, they do have issues picking out the right accessories to match the dress.
Here is a list of some fun accessories to totally ‘fun up’ your black dress:
1. Add pantyhose:
Pantyhose kind of provide the finishing touch to the elegant look. Sheer black or gray tinted pantyhose make for an excellent choice when it comes to evening wear. Colored tights could also work with a black dress so long as the color matches with other accessories and blends with your skin tone and age.
2. Right shoes:
Dressing up the little black dress with shoes is a significant part of the look because the shoes can provide contrasting color or style to the dress. They are kind of like the feature piece of the dress and everyone’s eyes are naturally drawn. Classic evening shoes that go well with a little black dress include ballet slipper flats, single-strap slingback sandals, or pumps.
The little black dress works as the perfect backdrop for showing off your favorite jewelry pieces. Necklaces that fit the neckline, a brooch pinned in a cute spot, or an updo with daring earrings – all work great with the LBD. The list is rather endless as far as combos go! You can choose to add sparkle or if you wish something self colored or if you’re in the mood for it then something contrasting all together.
4. Add a belt:
If you think your Little Black Dress can handle it, then add a belt! It can provide a very emphatic contrasting feature on your little black dress. Select a belt for color, texture, glamour, or pattern. The only concern is to ensure that it fits well with the dress as a whole – check the complete look in the mirror.
5. Add a scarf:
If you like wearing scarves, this can make a pretty addition to a black dress.
