LBD, little black dress, spice it up

The Little Black Dress (LBD) is an essential in every girl’s wardrobe because it is a dress for all occasions and never goes out of fashion.  I have a small, but trustworthy collection of LBD’s which I know I can wear whenever I have my “I have nothing to wear!” moments.  I never get bored of my collection of Little Black Dresses because I find different ways to jazz it up and I’m going to share that with you today.

Here are 5 ways to jazz up your Little Black Dress :-

Lady Gaga, little black dress

#1 Gaga-fy

Anytime you’re stuck wondering how to make a boring black dress more exciting, think WWGD – What Would Gaga Do? – and proceed to Gaga-fy your LBD to your heart’s content.


#2 Spice Up Your Hair

Instead of wearing your hair in its usual style, spice it up with something new.  Think like a Gossip Girl and impress with your tresses and you’ll be surprised at how it can change your entire look while wearing your favourite Little Black Dress.

#3 Bring On The Bling

Choose some gorgeous pieces of jewellery to wear and transform to glam immediately.  You can choose classic pearl beads or full-on blingin’ earrings or whatever tickles your fancy.

#4 Belt It Up

Adding a belt can help cinch in your waist and also, add a splash of colour to break up the black.

#5 Colour Pop

Who said you have to wear all black when you’re wearing a Little Black Dress?  Inject some life into it with colour.  It can be coloured stockings, red stilettos, a bold blue clutch – the list is endless!  Just be careful not to overdo it.

Do you have any more tips on how to jazz up a Little Black Dress?

    Hahaha WWGD 😛

    What you said! That’s how I’d jazz up a black dress. For me, it’s usually different cardies, wraps, bling and shoes.
