6 Ways to Wear Your Little Black Dress this Season

Filed under Fashion Look Your Best on Aug 27 12 by

Any woman will tell you that a little black dress is an absolute necessity. I didn’t believe this until I found my first little black dress, and it seemed as if my wardrobe instantly doubled in size! We all know that it’s a perfect option for a night out, but why stop there? Here are six ways to style your little black dress for the late summer and through the fall.

Look #1

This look is perfect for an Indian Summer. Add some pops of color, a sun hat, and maybe even a vintage belt like I’ve done here, and you don’t have to say goodbye to summer just yet.

Look #2

Ever thought about layering one of your favorite skirts over a dress? Bet you didn’t! I went with white here (which you can totally wear after Labor day, by the way) and added some simple brown accessories.

Look #3

Transform your classy black dress into the base for a bohemian outfit that’s city-ready. A floppy hat, slouchy sweater, and antique necklace will help you do this. You’ll fit right in SoHo!

Look #4

This is one of my favorites. Layer a cute and playful sweater and a Peter Pan collar shirt with your dress. Add a hat and you’re ready for a day of work or classes.

Look #5

You can look professional in your little black dress while still being super girly. Pink Hello Kitty tights, floral platforms and a hair bow make this outfit fun but a blazer and white button-up keep it looking grown-up.

Look #6

Your black dress can take you all the way through to late autumn, when it can be the base for the perfect bonfire outfit. Add your favorite tights, chunky socks, boots, flannel, and anything else that’ll keep you warm. You’ll be the best-dressed lady in the woods!

This fall, my must-have fashion item is I’m dying for a pair of red Litas!

The most played song on my IPOD is “Bigmouth Strikes Again” by The Smiths.

I’m secretly terrified of jellyfish!

I feel most in love with God when when I’m looking at a city skyline, on a plane, or standing next to the ocean. All of these things make me realize just how big He is.

The number one item on my bucket list is be a mom.
