Back to the Basics | 1 Basic Black Dress 5 Looks

It always comes back to the basics. Since we all have a ton of basic simple items hidden in our wardrobe it only makes sense to resort back to them in a time of fashion need. They are simple, go with anything, and are usually quite comfortable. But, most people don't see the full potential of their basic items and only wear them in one or two ways. When in reality there are multiple ways to wear basics! 

Today I will show you 5 different ways to style your classic little black dress. This essential is something we all have in times of emergency and a black dress outfit can get us through anything. 

It is time to move beyond only wearing it as a night out or special event dress, and start adopting it in more fun and unique ways. 

5 Little Black Dress Outfits

1. Quick & Easy Night-Out Look

The easiest way to wear a black dress is for a night out. And this look is perfect for a night out on the town that requires a classy and sophisticated outfit. A little black dress looks amazing on its own, and the subtle accessories add the perfect finishing touches. I am obsessed with pearl headbands as a trendy and high end looking hairpiece that adds the perfect touch. Add black heels and a black clutch and you are set!

2. Enhanced Night out Look

If you are heading on a night out and need to bring your little black dress to the next level I have the answer for you: add a blazer. This is the perfect jacket to add a high-end feel to your look that will immediately enhance your look. Be sure to also add a pair of dangly earrings and black heels to pull the look together.

3. Casual Day Time Look

A little black dress can be made to look more casual by adding a long-sleeved shirt underneath it. This adds a cute touch to a classy looking dress that I am in love with. A shirt under a dress is super on-trend right now and is a cute and stylish way to do something different with a basic dress. Accessorize with some heeled boots and funky framed glasses to pull the look together in a cute yet classy way.

4. Dressed down 

It might be hard to imagine such a classy looking black dress can be dressed down but it can! By simply adding a fluffy sweater over it and accessorizing with simple black boots you immediately turn a classy dress into a casual day time dress. Be sure to accessorize minimally - I suggest a pair of dainty gold hoop earrings

5. On The Go Girl Boos

For all the girl bosses out there who are on the go and want to look classy while still remain professional this is the outfit for you. Style the simple black dress with a pair of white chunky sneakers and a camel-colored jacket. This results in a stylish look that is still perfect for those who need to do a lot of running around to meetings.
