Tips and tricks on How to style Little Black Dress

The holiday season is here and its time to party like there is no tomorrow. If you cant decide what to wear this season then trust black and turn to your versatile Little Black Dress to grab attention of one and all. LBD is a versatile classic and can be worn on everyday of the week with a few styling tweaks. Here I bring to you some very fun and exciting ways to style a LBD.

18 fun ways to Style your Little Black Dress

#1 Add Sparkle with statement Jewellery




Add  a bit of glam to your holiday LBD look with statement jewellery pieces. You can try chunky bracelets, cocktail rings, ear cuffs or statement neck pieces. Personally I feel statement necklaces are the best way to add a pop of colour to your LBD look. Try jewellery in mint, gold, turquoise or bright red.

#2 wrap a scarf over your LBD for winter look



Scarves and stoles are nice additions to your winter LBD look. Wrap a scarf in a bright colour to spice up your little black dress. Adding printed scarves like florals, animal prints or polka dots to a solid colour dress like LBD is also a good idea. Experiment crazy with scarves tied in different ways and stoles of different materials like silk or traditional weaves. You can also use a traditional dupatta like phulkari as a cover up on your LBD

#3 Team LBD with a shirt


For a grunge look layer your classic black dress with a plaid shirt. Teaming your LBD with a shirt makes it perfect for a daytime casual look. You can pair the shirt + LBD look with  boots or sneakers for an edgy look or go for pumps for a more polished chic look.

#4 Cinch with a belt


 Use a belt to define your waist and flaunt curves in your LBD. Go for a metallic belt for a glammed out look or use your silk scarf like a belt for a more fun look. To keep things subtle cinch your waist with a thin black belt.

#5 Cozy in with a sweater for Casual look




It is winter and what better way to keep yourself warm than to pair your LBD with a knitter sweater? For more warm and comfortable look wear boots and add a printed scarf . If it isnt too cold at your place then layer your LBD with a contrasting shrug .

 #6 Show some Denim Love with a denim jacket over LBD



You can wear your sequined little black dress like a casual day outfit by pairing it with a denim jean jacket. Even if your LBD is plain add a denim jacket for a chic casual look

#7 Layer LBD over a T shirt




#8 Wear the LBD leggings combo



Dull days dont mean you cant dress up in a LBD.  Pair your classic Little black dress with a legging or stocking for a winter ready look.  Experiment with legging colours, prints and patterns. Opt for vibrant colours, sheer paneled ones or Aztec prints to bring in more drama.

#9 Sporty chic with sneakers or converse





Teaming your LBD with a pair of sporty shoes can actually work . If you are someone who loves the comfy converse then its time to try this chic combination for a day time look. Go for black sneakers with your LBD if you want to play more safe and dont want your shoes to attract attention. This look works best for a day out shopping with your girl gang


#11 Top with a vest jacket


#11 Slip on a Cape jacket or long coat

If you own a boring LBD then pair it with a nice long coat pr a cape style jacket. Sheer capes are also super in trend these days and you an pair a lace cape over your little black dress for a more feminine look.

#12 Go professional with a blazer



#13 Pop of print underneath LBD


Adding a pop of print under your sleeveless LBD is fun and quirky. This school girl inspired look will work nicely in winters

#14 Layer LBD over crisp white shirt for formal look



#15 Dress up your LBD with tights or stockings



Beat the chilly weather with a pair of black tights teamed with your LBD for a sleek streamlined party look. you can even dres down this look to wear to your office.


#14 Add a collar necklace to high neck LBD

If you love statement pieces then get creative with your LBD and add an embellished collar necklace for some sparkly party look. If you want to stay away from bling then go for a contrasting coloured collar necklace but make sure to try this only with your high neck LBD. Deepika here wears a LBD which has an attached collar but you can always rely on neklaces or just update your LBD by getting a collar stitched from local darzi.

#15 Go unexpected with distressed denim jeans



LBD and Jeans are both wardrobe staples but have you thought about wearing these two together? This combination may seem a little wild and unusal but you can always give it a try and wear your black dress like a kurta paired with denim.

#16 Bling up LBD with a brooch pin


Add some jazz to your plain LBD with a sparkly brooch pin

#17 Toughen up lBD look with ankle boots



#18 Use shoes to add a pop of colour to your LBD 



Pair your LBD with heels in firey red or hot pink and party hop in super style.


Additional Tips and tricks on ways to style your LBD

* A saucy red pout complements a LBD nicely so dont be afraid to go all out on your make up and opt for statement red lips.
* LBD is like a blank canvas on which you have complete freedom to experiment and switch things up. So get creative and think out of the box, play with details, indulge in funky layerering and dont be afraid to accessorize your LBD look to up the glam quotient.
* Pair your LBD with pumps for classic appeal. Go for nude pumps  to give an illusion of longer legs.
* Adding metallic accents to your LBD  is a good way to sparkle in a party look. Accessories in gold and silver go well with black and vibrant colours also make an LBD pop. wear a huge metallic belt, brooch pins, arm cuffs or a pair of oxidized danglers.
* When shopping for an LBD keep your body shape in mind . Also the length of your LBD matters a lot, ideally your black dress should end before your knee but ofcourse you an experiment and see what suits you best.
