Introduced in the 1920’s by Coco Chanel, the little black dress (fondly referred to in the fashion world as the LBD) is a closet staple for any woman. For graceful and timeless style, it is the go-to option for most women. Give your treasured LBD a new lease of life with these tips for accessorising your LBD.
Dare to be brave with your footwear. Embrace the trend with boots.
Always be prepared. The weather isn’t always reliable so ensure that you always carry a cover-up.
Make a statement with your make-up. Bright and bold lips or a smoky eye can transform a look.
Choose an evening bag that sparkles.
Add a splash of colour with a brightly toned bag or shoes. Bright red will always make an impact.
For all the magpies out there, add a twinkle to your LBD with statement jewelry. Wear an eye-catching cocktail ring or a chunky chain necklace to stand out from the crowd.
Style your hair in a classic up-do and wear a string of pearls and a pair of oversized sunglasses.
Don’t be afraid to wear your little black dress during the day. Team with a statement oversized bag and classic ballet flats for a chic understated look.
Pick a look and stick to it. Do you want to look glamorous or casual? Are you dressing for the office or for a day at the races?
Accessorize with caution. Pick one or two statement accessories that work together.
