One way to change the look of your favorite black frock is to add a belt. If you are not a fan of bows and glitz, even a metallic or colorful belt can really change the look of a dress. I like this bow statement belt from White House Black Market because it can upgrade even a basic black sheath into a party dress. Wear it at your natural waist to define your curves. If you choose a statement belt, keep your other accessories simple, but if your belt isn't flashy, then add some interesting jewelry or a fun shoe.
I wear my biggest and boldest pieces of jewelry with my basic black dresses because there are no other visual elements to compete with. I suggest either a large and glitzy necklace or a sparkly bracelet paired with chandelier earrings.
Of all the accessories, we are probably most comfortable being bold with our shoes. I normally suggest a bright red pump to accent a LBD, but during the holiday season red shoes become much more popular. To stand out, try a glittery or metallic shoe to add maximum impact to your outfit.
With multiple ways to style it, your favorite LBD can be your go-to piece for all the parties and events of the season. Who says black has to be basic? With these accessories the only word used to describe you will be "fabulous!"
