Striped Cardi Party

little black dress striped cardigan

One great thing about wearing a versatile piece like a little black dress is that you can easily improvise new looks without even trying. I’ve had this cardigan for years and NEVER thought of pairing it with a dress. I’ve always worn it with a t-shirt and jeans. I guess sometimes we limit the roles for certain items in our closets, but if you want to maximize the potential (why am I starting to sound like a finance seminar? lol) of your wardrobe, you’ve gotta think outside the box and wear your clothes differently!

2. Sheer Tights

Sheer tights will ensure that you legs look smooth and sleek in your equally smooth and sleek LBD.

3. A Great Purse

On days when you don’t have time to put much thought into your LBD look, make sure you grab a nice purse! If you can find a bag nice enough, it make everything else you’re wearing look that much better.

4. The Right Belt

Even if the rest of your outfit is perfect, adding the wrong belt can throw the whole look off. Make sure you take your time and pick out a belt that compliments both the dress and your figure while tying the outfit together.

5. Great Hair

LBD Look: Red Velvet

So my red pumps make yet another appearance. Too soon? Nah. πŸ˜›

I find that one of the easiest ways to accessorize a black dress is to throw in a pop or two of red. It has to been done subtly though. You don’t want to overdo it.

I also took the liberty of layering a plain black tee underneath by LBD to give it a sleeved look. Can you tell? πŸ™‚

The dress is actually sleeveless with a deep V-shape in the back. Adding the t-shirt gives me just the amount of added modesty that I want.

LBD Look: The Cable-Knit Sweater

little black dress with cable sweater

It was extremely cold this Sabbath. So cold that extreme measures and layers had to be taken to ensure my warmth. I had a totally different outfit in mind that morning, but once I found out what the temperature was (28 degrees Fahrenheit when I woke up, 36 when these photos were taken) I changed everything and started over. I actually believe in comfort over fashion, and I believe you can have both simultaneously. Plus, I like keeping all of my extremities.

Let me explain just how cold it was. It was so cold, that I went through all of my tights and decided that none of them were warm enough. I actually wore a pair of leggings with my dress and slid a pair of black socks underneath to make them look like tights. Nobody noticed. And if they did, I wouldn’t care.

I layered this warm cabled sweater over my little black dress to keep me warm and toasty. Would you believe that I got this sweater for just $2? Apparently even though temperatures are hovering around the low 30s, stores are flushing out their winter items right now to make room for their spring collections. Silly stores and their schedules.
