The most wonderful time of the year… if you have your #LBD.
The Little Black Dress. A classic that never gets old. It is always a good choice and appropriate for most all occasions. The #LBD can be easily adapted to the event, occasion or your style personality. I took one of my little black dresses and paired it with items I already owned to create 3 totally different looks to inspire you this holiday season, whatever your event or style personality. My hair, make up and simple earrings are the same for each look.
I started with a little black dress I found at a local thrift store for $20, paired it with a small crystal drop earring, the perfection foundation to create each of these looks!
Casual Style: You have a holiday party this weekend but you would rather show up in jeans and a plaid shirt. You like to be cozy and comfy. Pair your little black dress with a pair of flats – the red adds a pop of colour & glam for the season, take a blanket scarf, fold it in half to create a triangle then drape the scarf around your shoulders, pull over slightly to one side toss excess over that shoulder and hold in place with a safety pin or brooch.
Classic Style: Any chance to dress up and you are in! You like understated style, sophisticated and elegant. Bring on the pearls, layer up long necklaces and add a chunky bracelet. Hosiery is sheer black, medium height black pump and a soft coloured clutch add that air of interest to your classic look.
Street Style: You are anything but average and don’t mind standing out in a crowd. Your style is edgy. Why would you wear anything but black? Add a choker, leather/ faux leather jacket, patterned or fish net stockings, kitten heeled booties and a studded clutch for the win.
This is my niche – my zone of brilliance. I live for re-working the pieces I’ve already got. Sometimes I’m surprised by the hidden gems I find in my own closet. I hope you feel inspired this holiday season to test out your #LBD and play a little dress up in your own closet.
