Looking for the perfect holiday outfit without breaking the bank? What luck—it may already be hanging in your closet. The little black dress is a flattering, trend-resistant closet staple, and for our trusty readers, we’ve whipped up some fun new ways to rock it to seasonal soirees. Because do you really need a new dress for every event this December? Save yourself a mall trip and doll up your LBD with fresh, unexpected accessories for a brand new look. Scroll below to see how.
1. Green Dream
A colorful coat instantaneously transforms a straightforward black dress into a statement-making masterpiece. We love bold green for the holiday season, but any bright hue will take care of business just fine.
2. Neck Candy
A twinkling bauble can completely revamp a monochrome look. Go big with an eye-catching necklace that’s anything but boring.
3. Leather Love
Equal parts chic/cool, an oversized leather jacket downplays a black dress. Perfect for when the holiday party RSVP ambigiously reads “dressy casual”.
4. The Bomber Effect
Just because it’s a little black dress doesn’t mean it can’t have a lot of big style. A pair of chunky boots and striking satin bomber says It-girl all the way.
5. ‘Tis the Season
Accessorize with seasonal traditions like thigh-high boots (trend alert!) and a fuzzy faux-fur coat.
