Women's Fashion: How to Spice Up Your LBD

Women have always been told that the LBD is a wardrobe essential, the one that will take them practically everywhere.  The "classic" LBD look is effortless, simple, and elegant with little to no accessories -  But what's the fun of that? We all love to save money so why not change your "simple" little black dress and have it last a lifetime. Let's give a new meaning to the Little Black Dress.

 Bold Sun Shades

 Who said bigger isn't better? By adding a bold, dark frame to your face, you create balance and sophistication with only one signature item. An over-sized frame like these seen on Victoria Beckham will guarantee that you turn heads.

Our recommendation: try a pair of Ray-Ban's Cat Sunglasses

Fun Casual Jacket

In a hurry? Add a casual jacket to a tailored black dress to lend your look nonchalant cool (seen here on Jessica Alba). The rushed-out-the-door look pairs surprisingly well with the formal You can easily create a whole other vibe in just seconds! 

Pair your favorite sleek LBD with a Blank NYC jacket (in store only) 

A Tad of Lingerie

To show the bra or not to show the bra? That is the question. Depending on the occasion, accessorizing with a hint of visible lingerie will add the ultimate touch of spice to your LBD - just don't overdo it! By adding a lacy bra, you change the look from understated to sexy with one simple piece.

Bold Statement Jewelry
Raise your hand if you own jewelry. We thought so. 
Make a statement with loud necklaces and bold accessories (both seen here on Hillary Duff) that grab attention. Paired with the subtlety of an LBD, even the wildest ornaments won't overpower your outfit. Try adding diamonds, precious gems and stones for texture.  

Our favorite statement necklace? The Small Cortina Necklace by Giles and Brothers.

Subtle Shiny Lip

Move over, diamonds - lip gloss is a girl's best friend. A subtle shiny lip gloss is perfect for any occasion where you're going to be drinking and eating, since you can easily reapply it without a mirror! Nathalie Emmanuel shows it best in her unconventional LBD: 
bold lip color (the glossy lip) + bold dress = the perfect outfit  

Try the Stila Lip Glaze for an easy-application shiny lip that's sure to wow!
