Little Black Dress Redux.

{This is a piece I did for Sounds Like Nashville, one of my favorite resources for all things country music…head on over and check their blog out if you haven’t seen it yet! xx}

This time of year can be particularly tempting if you’re just out and about doing your Christmas shopping. If you’re like me, it’s easy to make an impulsive choice because you happen to see something and think, “I really need something to wear to that Christmas party, or for NYE.” Well, rather than succumb to  buying something too seasonal or overly festive—that you’ll really only wear for Christmas or  a New Years Eve event—why not nab a new Little Black Dress (or as I’m wearing here a LBJ?) 🙂

Here’s why: you’re more likely to wear it throughout the year, and there are a million was to make a LBD festive for a holiday party.  AND you won’t find yourself wondering, “Where in the world am I going to wear that evergreen sequin dress that seemed soooo fabulous on Dec 13th, or that santa red cocktail number that seems way too bright come Jan 2nd?”

So…here is my LBD Redux: some new twists on the Little Black Dress, that will keep you on trend without being TRENDY!

Use the arrows to scroll to see all my suggestions.

1) Edgy details (From cutouts to fringe, here are some ways to edge it up!)

2) Midi Length (I love this look because it’s a way to do bodycon, but still  be sophisticated.)

3) The LBJ (Little Black Jumpsuit…as I like to say, the jumpsuit is the ‘snuggie’ of fashion. Super comfortable!)

4) Lace. (Lace is always in, but here are some fresh ways to do a lacey black dress.)

LASTLY, here are some suggestions on how to take the LBD to holiday party status: red lips, gilttery gold eyeshadow, statement shoe, or a festive bag. Let us know what you’re loving in the comments! XO
