A little black dress is a staple in anyone’s closet. Here are some ways to dress it up in completely different fashions.
The little black dress is one of the major staples of any fashionista’s wardrobe. While these simple items can be worn alone, their true power comes from their versatile nature. A little black dress is essentially a blank canvas. It can be worn to fit any occasion, dressed up or down, made to look bold and daring or prim and elegant. The final look all depends on your accessories. Anyone should have at least a small variety of accessories at their disposal. Not everyone’s personal style is exactly the same, but having a little bit of everything never hurt. You can find items that suit any particular look that also suit your personal preferences and style if you know where to look and if you know where to start.
Basic first. Little black dresses can be the perfect casual date outfit. Whether you’re meeting an old friend for coffee or going for a walk in the park with your beau, a little black dress can be flirty and fun without being too formal. Now that it’s spring, these pieces can go great with any number of tops depending on the look you’re going for or depending on your personal style. Cardigans are an easy and great go-to for any dress. You can wear them simply draped and open, cinched with a colored belt, or buttoned up for a more put together look. In lieu of the cardigan, you can also opt for a flannel shirt to wear over your outfit. Wear it open with rolled up sleeves or tie the two open ends together into a bow to accent your waistline. If you want to look more professional or put together, a blazer goes really well over one of these pieces. And if you’re going for a walk on the wild side, you can always go for a bold print or a leather jacket.
Jewelry has a lot of power when it comes to accenting little black dresses as well. Statement necklaces are a wonderful option, especially if you’re looking to show it off. The dress allows the necklace to take the spotlight without falling too far into the background of your ensemble. If you’re going for an elegant or more timeless look, pearls and classic silver or gold jewelry work wonderfully. These pieces can go with anything, and despite their simplicity they always bring an air of charm and timelessness. If you want to go bold, then chunky jewelry and print scarves are a wonderful option. Wear a leopard print scarf with a red clutch and matching shoes for a louder look. You can feel free to mix and match colors and prints since the simplicity of the dress allows you to play around with accent colors. Feel free to experiment and you’ll find that your little black dress can yield an infinite amount of outfit possibilities.

Gone are the bright and sunny days of summer, and with them go the neon colors, the pastels and sharp whites of the season. The cool breeze of autumn brings with it richer hues, jewel tones, and thicker fabrics in woodsy and natural shades. Updating your fall wardrobe is much more than switching your summer dresses for wool sweaters and jeans, but also changing up your scarves, hats, purses, and jewelry into colors that go with the season. Here are a few outfit ideas that incorporate accessories in autumn colors.
For every day looks, it is a good idea to keep your outfit in neutral shades (browns, denim, beige, camel) that you can dress up with a brighter hued or jewel toned accessory. For example, pair some dark denim jeans with dark brown slouch boots and a beige sweater as a base. Add to your outfit an amethyst pashmina scarf and matching cashmere bucket hat. Carry a mustard handbag to add some dramatic contrast with the purple, or you can neutralize it with a deep brown leopard print tote. Throw on some bronze colored filigree hoops for some femininity and you are all set!
For a funkier option, pair some brown leather boots over black tights under a dark denim mini skirt. Tuck a black long sleeve v-neck shirt into your skirt, and wrap a maroon tube scarf around your shoulders like a cape or shrug. Wear a tweed newsboy cap to keep your head warm and carry a red orange clutch purse for some added spice. Or skip the hat and wear the scarf like a hood. If you want to go totally rogue, carry a crystal clutch purse. There is nothing wrong with being a little different!
For nighttime and special occasions, wear luxurious fabrics with heavier weight like velvet or brocade. Keep the palette simple so that you have more freedom with your accessories. Wear a velvet mini dress over black stockings and some glittering pumps. Add a dramatic statement necklace in gold or bronze, and carry a gold clutch purse. Earrings can be long and sweep your shoulders or they can be simple as a pair of emerald studs.
The air is getting chilly, so wardrobe essentials that keep you warm are necessary to survive the upcoming cold temperatures. However you choose to accessorize your fall wardrobe, be sure to stick with the season’s colors or you may stick out like a sore thumb.

Statement jewelry will always have a place in fashion no matter what, and with so many options, its hard to know what will work for you. The typical rule of thumb for statement pieces, whether it is earrings, a bracelet or a necklace is to wear a bold statement piece, then go minimal with the rest of your jewelry. Sometimes opting out of wearing any other pieces is a good option if your statement piece is bold and daring enough solo.
For example, Chicastic’s antique style brass chain and bead necklace is the perfect statement necklace that says a lot on its own without the need of other accessories. Simple matching studs or a minimal amount of arm candy can be worn with this necklace but it isn’t necessary at all.
