Functional Fashion: How to Style a Little Black Dress 4 Different Ways!

Posted Friday January 18, 2013 8:43 AM GMT

While no two women’s styles are the same, there is one article of clothing the most ladies own (or should anyway) — a little black dress.

This popular closet staple is timeless, classy and versatile. To prove its endless functionality, we put together four easy looks any fashionista can pull off that are fitting for every occasion, from the office to date night!

Check ‘em out!

Look 1: If you’re prepping for a night out, this look is for you. Simply throw a leather jacket over your LBD and pair the ensemble with some sexy heels and statement jewelry for a head-turning getup. Try adding a colorful layering option for a chic pop of color.

Look 2: For a casually-chic appearance, slip an oversized sweater over your dress and it’ll instantly look like a skirt. We’d wear something like this out shopping or to lunch with girlfriends. For footwear, try ankle booties to dress things up a bit.

Look 3: Surprisingly, your sexy sheath has a place at the office too! To make your frock work appropriate, wear it with a bold cardigan and cinch it at the waist. If the length of your hemline is questionable, throw on a pair of tights to keep that professional air about you.

Look 4: A blazer looks great with everything — especially a little black dress. For some added flare, accessorize with a chunky necklace. To accommodate the cold weather, we’d complete this look with a pair of tights and ankle booties.
