More Than A Little Black Dress


Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and weren't too stuffed to get out there and do some shopping this morning. In honor of Black Friday I thought it would be oh so appropriate to make the topic of this Fashion Friday the little black dress.


We've all heard it said: every girl should have one go-to LBD. A black dress is acceptable for almost any occasion. But this staple outfit runs the risk of being just a "back-up" in your wardrobe. And I say nay! Don't shove that poor little dress into the back of your closet! You can make the most of it and turn that one piece into several outfits. Here are three ways I like to style my LBD.


I'm a big fan of layering. Sweaters, tees, you name it. But only recently did I start to branch out and layer my favorite dress. Throwing a light chambray top under your dress gives it a more casual preppy feel. And don't forget to add some sparkle with a bangin' statement necklace.

You can always let your LBD stand alone with some fun jewelry but why not throw on a chunky scarf. 


This adds color and texture to the dress and makes your outfit a touch more interesting. This is my go-to outfit for holiday parties in Florida where we celebrate when the weather gets below 60 degrees.

My new favorite way to style a little black dress is turning it into something else entirely. 


Back to layering again but this time, throw your favorite sweater on top! Boom! Now you have a cute new skirt. The perfect casual yet stylish outfit to wear while you're scooting around town doing all of your holiday shopping.

And you thought the little black dress stuffed in your closet was just a last resort. Nope!
