The Little Black Dress is Forever
Diamonds, chocolates, puppies and a little black dress, all of these are forever a girl's best friend. We all have that one little black dress or many such LBDs, and it is a known fact that it comes handy during all types of occasions or seasons. As Karl Lagerfeld famously said that one can never be overdressed or underdressed in a little black dress, as there are multiple ways to play with it this outfit. Black automatically has the power to design and style you and escalate your attire from zero to hundred, really quick. It is the perfect go-to outfit because you can take this look from day to night just by switching out the accessories and shoes.
Today we will show you, how to accessorize this attire and the different ways that you could wear it in, to OwnTheLooks this festive season. Making use of this black beauty can be on a budget, and can be done with items that already exist in your wardrobe. Whether you prefer to keep it simple or jazz it up with accessories, we are here to help you get inspired. We have curated our favorite looks from celebrities and bloggers from around the world who show off their favorite way to style their dresses and have taken up the LBD game one notch higher.
First things first, let us stick to the classics. We like to the pair the LBD with a leather jacket. This gives a tough yet chic vibe to the outfit. It can make a bold impact on your look if you wear the right kind of leather as it becomes the best go-to piece of outerwear. Also, the benefit of wearing one is it makes for transitioning your daytime outfit to night time in one go. Wear ankle knee boots, because that is what makes for as a staple, every winter. Carry a smart frame or hobo bag to complete the look.
The power of simple accessorizing is incredible, and a belt makes the perfect item. Upgrading your attire can be easy when you throw in a belt on your LBD, and this necessarily does not mean it has to be of the same color. You can experiment and use bright ones or pastel shades. This is a basic look but definitely adds more glam to the overall look. Also, pair the outfit with stiletto heels of the same color as your belt. Carry along a small sling bag and wear hoop earrings to finish the attire.

Next up we have the combination of LBD with a denim jacket. Ooh, this one is gonna have a killer impact. Two strong fashion elements when combined together, they create magic. Let your outerwear do the talking, and try wearing a statement denim jacket with your little black dress. Go ahead and sport flat shoes or flats and carry a smart backpack. This look is dressy and bit edgy, so wear it when you are in a mood to dress up. Wear black or dark colored platform heels and carry a cute wristlet bag. This look is a ten on ten if you want to stand out.

Last but not least, we love to pair the LBD with black tights this winter. When the chill of winter sets in, a pair of black tights are a woman's best pick to stay warm yet modish. We love the streamlined look of a pair of black tights worn with your favorite little black dress this time of year. This sleek look is perfect for holiday parties and the office and can be equally dressed up or down for day and night. You can further accessorize with a faux fur coat or a light cardigan.
