Over emphasized yet remains relevant, that’s the story of the little black dress, fondly called the LBD. A wardrobe can’t be complete and a woman can’t be fashionable without a little black dress (or two) resting stylishly in her closet. Although Princess Diana‘s revenge dress is often referenced as the piece of clothing that shot the LBD to global fame, it was actually Coco Chanel who enlightened women on its importance. Decades and millions of women later, the Little Black Dress is yet to underdeliver on its promise: timeless, fashionable, and sophisticated.

One great thing about this outfit is its versatility as it can fly on the red carpet, Sunday morning service, or a baby shower. Considering that the LBD will work in a variety of settings, it’s therefore important to know how to style it to perfection. This is certainly what separates the famed fashionistas from everybody else. Good thing you’re here as styling class is about to begin.

While there’s the traditional way of styling a Little Black Dress (as seen above), you can always go the unexpected route by doing things non-traditionally. Whether you work it into a layered look or you style it with stockings, this outfit is flattering and remains stylish. 

Here are 18 ways to elevate your little black dress like a style star…

#1. LBD X statement accessory

The little black dress is like a blank canvas and it’s almost impossible to go wrong with any type of accessory. Whether that’s a statement neckpiece and/or earrings, a chunky headband (as seen below), or stylish gloves, your entire outfit can be elevated into an Instagram-perfect look. The chunkier the better—take bold steps in fashion, they’re usually the right ones.

#2. LBD X stockings

Never has cool and classy been well suited to be used together than in defining the pairing of the LBD and stockings. You can either opt for patterned stockings or plain black ones and then accessorize with a statement handbag. This is like using one stone to kill two birds, as you stay stylish and warm at that really chilly restaurant or party.

#3. LBD X print game

Sometimes you just want to spice up the LBD by wearing it street style. Try choosing a little black dress with subtle details and pair it with print accessories like snakeskin boots or monogrammed designer boots or a handbag. Complement this with minimal accessories and stand out like a style star!

#5. LBD X coat/jacket

For that refined edge, opt for a coat/jacket, including oversized ones. This look is comfy and stylish and also perfect for the cooler seasons. You can style this look with sneakers or create a more girly feel with heels. Otherwise, take it up a notch by finishing your outfit off with thigh-high boots.
