The little black dress is a closet essential for every woman. Its simplicity and unmatched versatility has made it gain popularity throughout the years.

The LBD comes in all sorts of designs. Small tweaks here and there can transform it to different styles depending on what you like.

Here are some of the ways you can accessorize and transform your LBD.

Vintage or edgy

This little must have provides you with a great canvas to work with. By adding some statement pieces, you can create a whole new vibe. If you want to go for a classic vintage look, wear some simple pearl earrings or a pearl necklace with it. If you want a more grunge look, play around with statement necklaces and earrings that are edgy.

Casual or office wear

Playing around with jackets, sweaters and coats can change your look from office wear to casual wear. This is a great idea for a girl on the go so it really helps when you need to go somewhere after work. One of the best jackets for a cute and edgy look is the leather jacket. On a cold day, put on a cute off shoulder sweater with your LBD and finish off with some boots. These are some the ways you can style them easily.

Elegant or playful

Bags are perfect accessories to work with when you have your LBD. If you’re going for an elegant look say a dinner party, opt for a clutch bag that will complement the dress. Whether you want to carry a sparkly clutch, a clutch with floral patterns or a plain one, your dress allows you to choose and work with any design you want.

Youthful or mature

Belts are small but impactful accessories to have. There are so many designs to pick from so there’s something for everyone. Thin and colorful waist belts give a more youthful and girly look while nude and toned down belts give a mature look. Depending on the look you’re going for, use belts to make a fashion statement.

Sporty or girly

Show me one girl that doesn’t love shoes and I’ll show you a liar. Whether you love sneakers, heels, boots or sandals, shoes are a girl’s best friend. You can instantly make your outfit look sporty by pairing the dress with your favorite sneakers or make it look elegant by pairing them with heels. Another way is wearing a band tee with your LBD if you’re feeling adventurous and for a more toned down look, ditch the shirt and wear the dress as it is. Besides, the dress speaks for itself. The LBD doesn’t limit you to one personality and that’s one of its awesome features.
