Two Ways to Wear a Little Black Dress


One piece that every girl needs in her wardrobe is a little black dress. I happen to have several because I love them so much, but you can get away with one or two because they're just SO versatile! You can dress them up or down with ease and hey go with every color under the sun. Therefore, they can be styled countless ways by switching up the statement colors, shoes and accessories that you wear them with. So, let's talk about how to wear a little black dress...

Leota was kind enough to send me their Susan Dress in a French Dot print and as soon as I opened that package, I knew it was going to become an instant favorite. What I love so much about this dress is that while it is black, and can technically still be considered a little black dress, it also has a subtle print which gives it an extra little something. That doesn't mean it's not just as versatile as all my other LBDs, however. I decided to show you two ways to wear a little black dress, so you can see how to dress them up or down according to the occasion at hand.


First up, I have a dressy date night worthy look. I'm a firm believer in fierce red heels and these JustFab bow bedecked beauties would be perfect for a Valentine's Day dinner with your honey no? A Claire's statement necklace and ancient gold clutch complete this goin' out ready ensemble.

If you want to go for a more casual vibe, consider pairing your little black dress with comfy flats like I did with this pair of Tory Burch ballet flats. And a cross-body bag is always a great addition to a casual chic outfit. The animal print from my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac bag really pops against the black dress! I see this being worn to brunch with the girls.

So, are you a LBD fan too lovelies? What's your favorite way to wear one?
