Street style: Jazz up your LBD
Be sleek but still fancy
"The unique neckline of this dress means you don't need a necklace," says Martha Leonard, 56, an accessories buyer at the Stanley Korshak specialty store in Dallas. "I made it elegant with a glittery clutch and pointed-toe pumps for my night at the symphony."
The dress: Victoria's Secret Catalogue, $79.50; victoriassecret.com.
Take it dancing
"I love this thick, stretchy fabric—it holds you in like shapewear," raves Tanesha Awasthi, 32, of San Jose, CA. With a chain-strap bag she can sling over her shoulder and comfortable but cute T-straps, she's ready for the dance floor. To see more of Tanesha's style, go to girlwithcurves.com.
Make it roar
This dress's body- hugging fit means it's a perfect layering piece. "A boxier jacket relaxes it enough for dinner with friends," says Los Angeles–based style blogger Marlien Rentmeester, 42. "I added the pink bag for interest and the gold belt for a little glamour." To see more of Marlien's style, go to lecatch.com.
