5 ways to freshen up your LBD look

Every woman has a favourite little black dress that she feels comfortable wearing. However comfortable it is, the more frequently you wear your LBD, the more you may find yourself getting bored with it. Here are five ways to give your little black dress a new lease of life and make it look brand new again.

Add statement accessories

Bold accessories that really stand out can make your little black dress modern or even futuristic. According to Marie Claire the LBD was first made fashionable by Coco Chanel in the 1920s. Today, chunky chokers or wide bangles in bold colours can lift the whole look and freshen your appearance.

Add designer tights

Whatever the style of your little black dress, it will make more impact when teamed with a pair of designer tights. Patterns, from polka dots or checks to flowing patterns mirroring nature or faux tattoos, can add real volume to a traditional little black dress.

Make a statement with your hair

Upswept hair can look amazing, especially if your LBD is a stunning black maxi dress. For an elegant and timeless look, think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s or to bring the whole thing up to date, why not add volume to your hair in the style of Adele? You can easily find the ideal black maxi dress for any occasion, formal or informal, online.

Add animal prints

Make a statement with sexy leopard print footwear. Animal print shoes or boots can add a new dimension to your little black dress. If you prefer, team it with animal print tights or scarves to show off your wild nature. A leopard print or snakeskin print bag in vibrant unnatural colours will always offset the austerity of your LBD.

Wear a tailored jacket

It may be tempting to simply throw a pashmina over your shoulders before heading out for the evening, but adding a tailored jacket can demonstrate that you know who you are and where you are going. A statement jacket in the colour you know is right for your complexion can make all the difference.

However you choose to enhance your little black dress, you know there are so many ways of wearing it that you can have a different look every day of the year.
