Throw a tailored jacket over your little black dress
Ten times cooler than a pashmina or worn-in office cardigan, a tailored jacket will make the whole day-to-evening-to-dance-floor transition a total cinch.
Update your little black dress with a serious dose of bling
With so many glitzy, eye-catching earrings and bracelets, no one will notice if you’re trotting out your favorite little black dress, two (or three) weekends in a row.
Dress up your neckline with lots of long necklaces
Not only do they look festive and fun, but über-long necklaces’ll make you look long and lean too.
Cozy into some faux fur
If anyone knows how to turn an outfit upside down (in a good way), it’s style icon of the decade Kate Moss. Follow in Miss Moss’s fashionable footsteps by adding a little faux-fur jacket or stole before you head out for a night on the town. Bonus points if your super-sexy LBD is in leather or pleather.
Embellish your little black dress with a brooch or pin
Secure a glitzy bauble onto your little black dress and you’ve got a young, totally now outfit idea.
Pair your little black dress with sexy red shoes
Wow is all we can say. Party-hop in saucy red high heels and an LBD with a plunging back and you’ll have them swooning both coming and going.
