Little Black Dress | 3 Ways to Avoid Wearing It Again

Another invite with nothing in the closet to wear? Unfortunately, you didn’t anticipate having to go to another holiday party since you just confirmed 2 events in the past week. “The same people won’t be at this party,” you hope to yourself. But I’m sure they’ll remember you wore that same dress to your cousins wedding, your sister’s bachelorette party, and now again to the family Christmas party. Are you tired of wearing the same little black dress for every occasion? Don’t get caught wearing it again.  Here are 2 creative ways to get dolled up without wearing the same little black dress again.

1. Dress Up a Little Black Suit

Suits aren’t only for business and work. Invest in some great jewelry and sparkles, and pair it with your favorite suit, a great top and you’ll look amazing. Depending on the formality of the occasion, choose very dressy jewelry or more casual accessories. For example, if you’re going to a wedding or a very formal Christmas gala, get a gaudy three piece jewelry set. Choose a bold bib necklace or elegant chandelier earrings. Pair these together with some bling on your wrists, patent pumps and a luxury clutch to tie it all together. Investing in jewelry will save you the hassle of having to buy a whole new dress with accessories or wearing the same little black dress.

2. Revamp Your Blouse and Skirt

It’s all in the accessories. Even if the top is a simple satin tank and a black pencil skirt, it still has so much potential to make you stand out.

  1. Pick your favorite blouse or top that fits your body perfectly.
  2. Get you biggest earrings or necklace.
  3. Coordinate it will lots of sparkle and glam with other pieces such as a belt, hair accessories, and shiny shoes.
  4. Use anything that will add more excitement to your outfit.
  5. Makeup and nails are key. Instead of doing something neutral, spice it up with a bold lipstick color, and some extra sparkle.
  6. Smoke your eyes, put some shimmer on your cheeks, and you’re good to go!

Your goal is to look dressed up without having to reach for that little black dress again.
