a fun and flirty lbd is perfect for a night out with the girls or even a date. wearing a one-shoulder style with a fitted silhouette and pencil skirt shape flatters most body types. paired the little black dress with modern accessories like a wide gold bangle, stud earrings, and a choker.

complete the look with a metallic envelope clutch and ankle-strap heels. a sleek ponytail and smokey eyes go perfectly with this look.


for the office, a little black dress in a sheath style is not only work appropriate, but perfect for after 9-to-5 events. style the lbd with a thin leather belt, animal print pumps, a black satchel handbag and diamond stud earrings.

for inspiration, take style cues from tv characters like claire underwood (robin wright) from house of cards and real life style icons like former first lady michelle obama and catherine, duchess of cambridge who are both known for wearing sheath dresses.


a dressy lbd is perfect for a cocktail party or semi formal event. for a touch of glam, select a little black dress in a ruched style with a heart-shaped bodice. the lbd should end on the knee, and classic accessories work best for evening.

pair your dress with dangling earrings, a cocktail ring, sparkly clutch and round-toed pumps. bring a shawl to keep warm. finish off your look with red lips and a chignon.


during the day accessorize your little black dress according to the occasion. for a daytime event, a shift little black dress with a slashed neckline works best. especially when styled with a silk scarf, slingbacks, a leather hobo bag, and bangle.

another option is to style the lbd with bright shoes and jewelry to add a splash of color to the dress. for warmer months, wear a loose shift little black dress with a statement necklace, sandals, tote bag and a fedora hat.
