A little black dress (LBD) is a wardrobe essential for good reason—it’s classic, sexy and incredibly versatile. While, of course, you can always keep it simple and wear it as-is, there are endless ways to layer and create outfits that feel totally new and appropriate for a variety of occasions. I put together three ways to style a simple LBD for daytime, work and a date night or girls’ night out. As the base for each outfit, I’m wearing a fitted knee length dress from vilanyas.
Whether it’s shopping, errands or a lunch with girlfriends, create a casual fall look that is both comfortable and chic by adding boots, a cocoon sweater, a wide-brimmed hat and a long necklace.
For the Office
A long womens fashion vest makes a fitted dress office-appropriate and interesting, and gives it a more tailored appearance. Add ankle boots and a chunky necklace to finish it off.
Try something new for date night and layer a knotted chambray shirt over your LBD to accentuate your waist. Button it to the top and accessorize with a sparkly statement necklace and cage sandals to keep it feminine, chic and a little edgy.
