How to accessorize your little black dress

There is nothing more adaptable in a wardrobe than a little black dress. It can literally be a blank canvas for you to decorate as you please, depending on your mood or the occasion. The way you accessorizes your LBD can depend on both of these things, so what sort of accessories can you find to spark your imagination.
One of the best, and most fun, ways to choose your accessories is to take a look at online retailers such as Joyluxe who have a selection of colorful, trendy and stylish accessories for you to choose from. So, what should you have in mind when you are shopping for those accessories?
Deciding on the jewels
Jewelry is probably one of the most obvious accessories to choose when looking for something to accompany your LBD. If you are wearing the dress for a more sedate and formal event then plain golds and silvers are an excellent choice, as are pearls or understated diamonds. For more lively occasions it’s fun to go chunky. You can stick with the metallic look or opt for big bold colors that add a splash to the black.
Choosing the footwear
Even when the snow is on the ground you can still wear your LBD. Pair it with knee length flat boots and you have a grungy and cool look that also keeps your feet warm. Of course, you can also opt for high heel full length or ankle boots if you want to go for a sexier look, but they don’t necessarily work too well outside when there’s ice on the ground. In the summer, flat or low heel pumps make an excellent accompaniment to any LBD, and you can opt for some decorative embroidery on your footwear if you want to add a little extra sparkle. Of course, if it’s party season then an LBD looks amazing with those killer heels, as long as you don’t overestimate your ability to walk by the end of the night.
And then there’s…
Accessorizing an LBD is not just about jewelry and footwear, as the weather gets cooler you have the perfect opportunity to add a light wool jacket or a pashmina. Purples, greens and ruby reds work well to add a little warmth to the black. Of course a scarf or belt can also add just that little zest to an LBD. Metallic colors are great for creating some zing.
As you can see there is so much you can do to turn your LBD into just the outfit you want. If you use the right accessories it can seem like you have several different dresses in your closet. When you’re looking for accessories online you should use your imagination. Don’t always stick to the tried and tested, it’s good to have a change sometimes. You never know you might just prefer your new choice, and discover a whole new look.
