The little black dress: time to reinvent the classic

Everyone who claims to have a good sense in fashion knows that it is a must to own a little black dress. But the trick is to be able to style it in many different ways. I am going to show you just how versatile this look can be by using layers to transform it for every need. Seriously, there are almost an unlimited number of ways to style your little black dress (LBD) and if you’re creative, you’ll never have to wear it the same way twice. Check out new dress combinations below!

It’s a modern classic for good reason: the LBD can take you from morning to evening—and even to the next day—effortlessly and in style.

A little black dress can always be counted on to deliver a best-dressed evening look with hardly any extra effort. Nothing screams chic more than a LBD cloaked in faux fur.

Keep your look timelessly elegant by sticking to neutral tones with crystal drop earrings and a boxy clutch.

To create an outstanding evening look, go ahead and accessorize with a statement necklace or a choker.

It may seem like a no-brainer but the addition of an eye-catching bauble can give your little black dress a new lease on life. For a more dramatic effect, try layering two simple, long necklaces in gold or silver. Take your LBD to almost every occasion and update it with an embellished collar – for date night for example! I love the idea of adding an embellished detachable collar to any of the high-neck dresses you own. This will change your LBD into a whole new dress and shows your good sense of fashion!

A pair of patterned hosiery is an inexpensive and seasonably sensible way to add visual interest to an LBD. Be careful with this seasons fishnets – only try those with small diamond squares and pair them to a knee length dress. Fishnets may create a more grungy look with your LBD but can be worn with high heels in a classy way, too.
There’s no better way to show off your figure than to add a belt around the smallest part of your waist.

Try a metal belt to recreate your own LBD in a new way. Vary between chic and rock ‘n roll style by changing the belt from classy metal to a leather belt with a huge statement belt buckle.

Not sure what to layer above? A colored coat will work as a statement accessory and is a perfect way to update your LBD for evening events or work at colder weather. Pairing a leather jacket to an LBD is one of my favorite ways to wear it all day every day in an effortless way. Dressing down your LBD works well with moto jackets. Another way to style this dress a little bit different is to pair it with a trendy printed bomber jacket.

Change your outfit in a few seconds for the after work party and take your LBD to the next level by rocking a pair of bold shoes with it. Pointed heels always create a sexy look!

Ever tried to pair your LBD with thigh-high boots? The outcome is a sexy but relaxed look!

For example, pairing your LBD with a moto leather jacket will look endlessly cool with sneakers or ankle boots but laid back and sexy with heeled sandals. Play with those styles to create the look you feel most comfy in!

Wearing a cocktail-appropriate LBD with tennis shoes is a bold move, but for those daring enough, it can provide a delightfully unexpected contrast which is totally my style.

You’re a real fashionista and not afraid to try new looks? Pair your black dress with heels and colored socks!

Trend skirts for 2017

Trend skirts for 2017

The ultra girly garment is going to be the wardrobe star you won’t be able to live without this summer. Yearning for vintage grandeur, effusive femininity or whimsical details? You got it! So, now you can take a look at the new trends!

The Pleated Skirt

Last year this alluring piece made a grand entrance in our wardrobes. Forget about casual this summer and opt for the fab version of the oh-so easy breezy piece. Become the season’s golden girl and pick the skirt in a metallic hue that you will pair with an oversized button down, accentuating your waist with a large belt, or a girly cropped top. Those will allow the skirt to make the statement it deserves.

The Tea-Length Skirt

A long skirt reminiscent of the 50’s could become the best addition to your summer essentials! There’s so much va-voom in this stunning number that a simple fitted tee will become its best ally. Choose a beautiful print and ultra glam shoes and accessories because, with this staple, the sun won’t be the only one to shine, trust me!

The Wrap Skirt

How about bringing a delightful nuance into your wrap skirt game and going for asymmetry in a soft, feminine hue? Create a chic two-tone ensemble by adding an elegant tank top and refined ankle strap shoes in black for summer soirées by the sea!

The Trumpet Skirt

There’s something utterly flirtatious about this skirt. It oozes femininity and makes you want to dance the night away, even by day. So why not taking your cues from Carrie Bradshaw and choose an irresistible sequin skirt that you’ll pair with a ravishing blouse and your favorite pumps to dance your way to the office on a sunny summer day. They’ll be dazzled by so much allure!

The Ruffle Skirt

Not only is this skirt every curvy girl’s best friend, but it also comes with plenty of seduction! A little ruffle will always go a long way, particularly in the summertime when the weather gives us major all-I-wanna-do-is-have-some-fun vibes. No better way to embody this feeling than wearing an uber girly outfit. You won’t even have to overdo it with a plunge since the skirt delivers already tons of sexiness. A simple crew neck tee and ankle strap heels will add a lot of sophistication to this polished ensemble.

The Mini Skirt

In 2017, we all want to bless our wardrobes with vinyl! What better way then going out at night wearing a mini skirt in the it-fabric? A simple oversized sweater or even a fitted tee will make sure that this fab piece gets plenty of attention! And for those of you who want to go all the way, dare finishing the look with very chic and trendy booties in a metallic hue that will be all over the streets this summer!
