4 Ways To Style Your LBD

by Smalltownme

Valentine's day is right around the corner. What's on your agenda? Looking forward to a hot date night? Or maybe celebrating Galentines Day with your besties? Or are you like me and planning on grabbing a burger with the kids? Today I'm showing 4 different ways to style a little black dress. So no matter your plans, I got you covered. Get ready to be inspired!

For my first look, I layered my LBD over a fitted turtle neck and added a cute belt bag. This gives me a little warmth (hello Minnesota winter) as well as a little edge. I finished off my look with a cute pair of moto boots. To keep my look casual and cool, I did a half zip with my boots layered with some slouchy knee-high socks. This look would be so cute with black tights or leggings as well. And make sure you play up the belt and make this look your own - a belt bag, black belt, or pop of color... there are so many ways to personalize this style.

Next, I put on a leather moto jacket, a pair of over the knee boots, and some fun pattered tights to give my look a little sass. I chose a black leather jacket, but any color would work. Keeping my lace tight and boots black, my look remains polished while still giving me a little edge. I love the flirty vibes of this look - perfect for date night or girls night out.

Next I layered my LBD over a white dress shirt and threw on my favorite pearls. Styled with black tights and black heels, I just gave my dress a fun and classy vibe. I love how one dress can be styled in so many ways. This same LBD just went from a sassy date night to Sunday morning church service. Talk about getting mileage out of your pieces!

Finally, I'm adding a little casual chic style by layering on a cute sweater. I chose a sweater that fell straight (not gathering at my waist). I love how it casually falls over my dress giving me a laid back style. I paired this look with my favorite lug sole boots. Combat boots or trendy sneakers would also work. To dress up this casual style, I added a black leather clutch. It's amazing how your handbag can help set the tone and sway your look from casual to dressy.

Have fun changing up your little black dress in unexpected ways.. I've linked a few similar styles here. Happy styling!
