3 Ways To Wear Your LBD

The LBD, there really isn't much to it, it's just a little black dress. But what happens when you pair it with different accessories? I think styling dresses differently can be quite challenging, often I find that once I've worn a dress for the first time I don't really know how to wear it again without it being really obvious that I've already worn it before (not that there's anything wrong with re-wearing outfits but you know when you went to a party last weekend and this weekend you want to wear that dress again but don't want everyone to notice.. yeah, that.) So I thought I'd share with you three different ways you can style one dress.

My LBD of choice is a gorgeous velvet wrap dress which is just so perfect for this time of year. When choosing a dress, I didn't want to chicken out and pick a super plain one; this dress is velvet, has a slit on one side, sits off the shoulder and has appliqué detailing over the bust - with this much going on already, how can you style it differently each time without going completely overboard?

For my first look I left it pretty simple, you know the drill, you're going out so you grab your heels, a coat and a clutch, and you're ready to go. I'm assuming this is how we all style our LBDs?

My second look is probably my favourite, and the most daring, I decided to layer a roll neck because I've been loving layering this season and I absolutely love the result. I went for a black roll neck top rather than a coloured one purely because there is already so much going on with this dress but I think it's a really great workwear outfit. If you're going to work and then heading out I think this ensemble gives you the ultimate sophisticated look. For a night out you can simply take off the roll neck or just leave your bag behind and you're good to go.

Finally, I wanted to dress it down completely. It's pretty hard to dress down a tight midi dress though so I didn't want to hide the dress completely. I decided to go for my leather jacket which is the ultimate casual outer layer and some floral ankle boots. I think wearing flats can maybe look a bit too much like you've just come back from a night out and your feet are killing, with ankle boots that doesn't happen and it just looks like you've gone for a casual look, great for a day out in town followed by some drinks.
