Your Old Little Black Number Turned Glam with Accessories

You can call it what you want, accessorize, modify, rejuvenate, upgrade, or magnify, but ladies one thing is for sure, apart from major change is it possible to get a ton of mileage out of your versatile little black number? You all have the “One”, don’t you? If you don’t, then now is the time, as I will be sharing handy tips on how the right accessories completely revamp your evening look and transform the little black dress you thought everybody knows by now.

Faux-fur or tailored jackets: Follow in the footsteps of celebrities and turn your outfit upside down in a great way by adding a faux-fur giley or jacket before you head out tonight. Your little black number will score bonus points especially if it is leather or even fake leather. If faux-fur is not your style, try a tailored jacket, which will make the transition from desk to the dance floor - a lot classier than a worn-in cardigan.

Jewelry: Nobody can go wrong with a dose of bling when paring it with a black dress. The amount and assortment of eye-catching and glitzy jewelry available out there is endless. You would not even spend a fortune when you use one of many coupons such as the available 6pm.com coupons with ranges that will definitely suit and compliment any color dress, including your trusty black dress. Do not stop with bracelets and necklaces though; earrings and waist accessories are equally important in transforming your outfit. Can you envision one of Jcpenny’s bold Red Teardrop Bib Necklaces or the Monet Gold-Tone Collar Necklace on Jcpenny with a little black number and the dramatic change it will have on your appearance?

Shoes and creative tights: These are two vital yet often ignored mentions to add new life to your evening attire. Bold, glossy red heels with a little black number, leopard-print stilettos or metallic court shoes can effortlessly give your outfit a sultry edge. Team up your heels with quirky stockings and on-trend tights to draw attention to your unique style instead of focusing on your particular outfit.

Hair accessories and handbags: When we mention headgear, we do not mean wool hats or ear muffs by any chance! For a glamorous evening look, hair accessories such as head chains, delicate floral crowns, crystal bling slides or grips, and studded Alice bands can create that retro-glam look, allowing you to channel your inner Blair Waldorf. If you want to wear a scarf, opt for something like a Hermes scarf to completely transform your dress. An evening attire brief is not to stay warm ladies but to make your little black dress stand out whilst giving it a face lift. As for arm candy, opt for a handbag that either amps up the glam factor using it’s oomph or helps balance out your look through it’s chic simplicity.
