For most women, a little black dress is a staple piece. There seems to be a length, a fit and a cut that somehow manages to suit every woman, no matter their shape. For those moments of panic before an evening out where nothing in your wardrobe seems to sit right, you can always rely on the trusty LBD.
Whilst a black dress can be a sophisticated base for an outfit, often the simplicity of the piece can leave something else to be desired. But the question is, how can you add a little something extra to the outfit without appearing overbearing and cheapening the look? The answer lies in the accessories.
1. Mix Up The Patterns
The addition of a subtle pattern, such as animal print, can be a very simple way of introducing different colours whilst still tying in the darker shades of the animal print to the black dress.
2. Change The Texture
Many people underestimate just how much a change of texture can add to an outfit, without having to introduce an additional colour palette. A little black dress and a crossbody quilted bag, like the luxurious Elixir Classic Crossbody Clutch, are an absolute match made in heaven.
3. Add A Pop Of Colour
Probably the easiest way to spice up your little black dress is to add a colorful bag. For the cooler months, we tend to stick to rich reds, blues, and purples. Bonus points if you match up your lipstick as well!
4. Don't Be Afraid Of Embellishments
When the word embellishments comes to mind, tacky often follows, but this definitely does not have to be the case. We saw a huge amount of designers showcasing beautifully embellished garments on the catwalk and this is a trend we love. Our edgy Jade clutch would be a perfect addition to any outfit.
