The little black dress

The LBD. You know you have one hanging in your closest right now. It's one of the essential pieces that we all own but I guarantee doesn't get enough use. If you don't have an LBD or are looking for a new one, here are two very affordable options (obviously you can find one anywhere, and in any price range):

Nicole by Nicole Miller's LBD

Target's LBD

Here are three suggestions on how to get more use out of your LBD.

Cocktail party

Now this may not be the first thing that comes to mind when trying to decide what to wear to your party; however, with the right pieces you will look HOT!

A bib necklace is an easy way to dress up a tee or dress. Instant & easy glam factor!
Stella & Dot

Wear a chunky bracelet or a bunch of different bangles.

Carry a fun, flashy clutch.
Calvin Klein

Let's not forget a pair of peep toe pumps....especially my new favorite ones!


The next item I know you all have in your closet is a white blouse. Wear the blouse underneath your LBD and you now have a polished, work appropriate outfit.

Ann Taylor Loft


If you go for the classic blouse pair it with a multi-strand pair of pearls.

Stella & Dot

A white classic blouse will always do the trick, but you can always have fun with the look and wear a tie front blouse.

Have fun with your shoes......

The high heel oxford is very popular. I'm a huge fan of these!

LOVE these red suede pumps. How can you not look sexy in these?!

Date night

Last but not least, it's time to play down the LBD for a fun date night. Try layering a tunic length sweater over your LBD and cinch the waist with a big belt. Pull on a pair of tall boots (over the knee is all the craze this season but I haven't tried a pair yet) and out the door you go.


Steve Madden

Pick a light weight sweater. You don't want anything too bulky since you're going to wear a belt around the waist.
Victoria Secret
