It’s a really versatile piece that can work for anything from casual dates to lunches to shopping to travelling – basically anything.
Personally, I love to carry this LBD when I travel and I accessorize it differently every time. I create comfy day-time looks that I can walk around in. And in the evenings, I accessorize it up a little to create cocktail looks.
So today I want to show you ways to wear a little black dress in five different ways that any girl can rock!
1. Classic Evening Look
This evening look is the easiest and most common way is style a little black dress. Just add black stilettos and a cute pair of earrings and you’re good to go! Pumps are, of course, the best shoes to wear with a little black dress if you want a classic look. Or go for strappy heels. You can add a glittery pink or red lipstick or smokey eye makeup.
This classic LBD look can be a great idea for dates or an anniversary dinner. Or it can work for a black tie event or cocktail party, for which you can add pearl necklace or statement diamond earrings. I showed this look in my last video about what to wear on a first date.

4. Glam/ Trendy Look
A glam and trendy way to style a little black dress is to wear it over skinny leather pants. I tucked it in a little bit in the front to make it look like a hi-low top. You can also make this a grunge look by adding black eyeshadow and messy hair. Or you can try Goth makeup with it.
If it’s winter-time and you’re wondering what to wear over black dress, try a matching wool jacket for the fail-safe look. To spice it up, go for a leopard print wool jacket, or a white down jacket if it’s really cold. Pair it with black boots over the leather pants.
5. A Pop of Color
One of my favorite ways to wear a little black dress is by adding color through accessories. Either keep it colorful or match them all in a single color. Adding color to a plain black dress is a beautiful way to create new looks each time, and it’s a very Instagrammable way to rock an old dress! You can also try a colorful scarf.
