Upgrade The LBD

by fance

I was in search for an upgraded version of my favorite little black dress. After trying on a dozen and creating a mound of hangers and dresses in the fitting room, I stumbled upon this little number. I love anything with aztec prints and this dress combined both sophistication and edge with the black and white sash that made twirling around the dress so much fun!




Unfortunately, I didn’t purchase the dress (still kind of regretting the decision :P). Instead of spending the money on a new dress I figured I would spend it on buying new accessories to jazz up my current LBD. Below are some creative ways to give your favorite LBD a whole new look!

Jewel Tone Earrings Perfect for all skin tones. Usually I like to wear statement necklaces but I think over the top earring are a little less expected change. LBD, jade or turquoise earrings, red lips and a effortless chignon. Perfection. Splurge vs steal!

Animal Print Belt One accessory I cannot live without! My current one from Zara is actually falling apart from wearing it so much! I love how adding a little animal print adds some spunk and sexiness to any outfit. Here‘s a great one I found by MK!

Colorful Clutch I think a red clutch is a great investment. Pair it with your LBD or make it more casual and instantly glam up a white t-shirt and skinny jeans. So many fun ways to incorporate this piece into your wardrobe.

Stand out Shoe My going out shoes either are the generic black or nude pump. A splurge on a colorful, stand out shoe is a must! Try either a bright aqua, magenta or neon pump. Trust me, playing with color was never this fun!

Ladylike Lips Currently, I’m obsessed with YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick (it even has SPF 15!) For $34 a pop it better be the best lipstick to ever touch my lips. I must say thought it is worth every penny. The Nude Biege, Sensual Silk and Faobourg Peach are my top picks.

Favorite Blazer This is my go to clothing item for any day of the week. A blazer pulls together any outfit. Try something fun and go a little crazy with either a bright or floral print blazer to dress up any neutral ensemble. Great ones here and here.
