How To Style Your Little Black Dress In 2018
The New Year has just begun, and fashionistas already have ideas on what’s hot and what’s not in 2018. While last year has been a good year for fashion, there are some trends that should be left in 2017 such as distressed sneakers, fanny packs, and unicorn anything. But while you should certainly incorporate trends into your wardrobe, it’s also important not to discard the staples, especially your favorite pair of jeans, your trusty white button-down shirt, and your ever dependable and timeless little black dress. While it was predicted that bright, cheery, and metallic colors will dominate fashion this year, you can definitely rock your LBD by styling it to make it look fresh and current. Here are some ideas on how to style your little black dress in 2018.
- Add an embellished jacket
A classic, black leather jacket can add edge to your little black dress, but to make it sparkle this year, try wearing it with an embellished jacket. It’s all about color and sparkle this year as you can wear a sequined or an embroidered jacket just like Bella Hadid. You can wear it the regular way, or just throw it over your shoulders for a cool look.
- Don’t forget jewelry
You can give your little black dress a boho, ethnic, or modern vibe depending on the jewelry that you choose to wear with it. Take a cue from the runways and spice up your little black dress with a pair of chandelier earrings. It’s all about statement earrings this year, so apart from chandelier-style ear pieces, you can also rock your little black dress with embellished ear cuffs. Meanwhile, a chunky chain necklace with oversized charms will transform your LBD from demure to rock and roll.
- Wear it with sneakers
For a fun look, wear your little black dress with a classic pair of white sneakers. This combination looks young and fresh, especially if your LBD is a slip-type dress or has an A-line shape. Don a pair of dark shades and carry a quilted bag, slick on some lip tint and nothing else, and there you have it—an instantly cool look that’s effortless yet subtly sexy at the same time.
Try to mix and match a few elements from this year’s trends with your staples to come up with unique looks. Follow these tips to style your little black dress and look fabulous in 2018.
