A little advice for your little black dress! Very few pieces have the classic appeal of the little black dress. This style of dress is effortless, chic and a prom tradition. The first little black dress was created from the genius of Coco Channel and first graced the pages of Vogue back in the 1920s. Recall the style of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s by simply slipping on a little black dress. Looking effortlessly chic actually takes a lot of preparation! It is all about complimenting the dress with the right accessories. Here are some suggestions that will help make your little black dress even more magnificent.
The Audrey Look – Rock your look with layers of pearls and oversized sunglasses just like the Breakfast at Tiffany’s starlet. Wear your hair up to complete the look. Simple, playful and perfect for prom night.
Heels, heels,heels! – Nothing completes the little black dress quite like a pair of fabulous heels. Work the daring contrast look with a pair of bright, colorful heels or keep it simple for a subtle finish. What ever style you choose, make sure your heels are perfect!
The clutch – The clutch is not only practical, it is also the perfect accessory and goes a long way to completing your outfit. Black is the perfect fashion canvas and you can potentially carry any clutch you want to. For a really dazzling look, go bold and match your bright colorful heels with your clutch.
The belt – Want to add some extra texture and color to your look? The belt is the perfect accessory for your little blackdress. Try a whole range out and see which one suits your look and your body shape. You can go skinny, thick, colorful or neutral; the choice is yours. The belt is a great way to break up the color and add extra dimension to your little black dress.
Layer it! – Layers are important; they give you something to take off and something to keep you warm when you arrive at prom. Pair your little black dress up with a bolero or jacket. A bolero is an adorable short-sleeved jacket that is light enough for spring and pairs perfectly with your dress. Almost any style is going to work with your dress, try a few and see which one really sparkles!
Classic long gloves – Dare to be different and classic! A pair of gloves can really add the perfect finishing touch to your little black dress. White is perfect for the daytime and black is perfect for eveningwear and the prom. Think Audrey Hepburn again and wear your hair up and some pearls around your neck. You will look stunning.
Pantyhose – Pantyhose are the finishing touch to your look and will also even out your skin tone. Sheer black or grey pantyhose work very well with all little black dresses. Colored tights can also work, just make sure that the color matches with your other accessories and does not clash with your skin tone.Close
