Spring 2014 Style Inspiration: How to Jazz Up a Little Black Dress
By Danielle Nicole

The month of April has just about had its run, so I’m starting off the week with a Style Suggestion that every fashionista can appreciate.

Nicole writes, “Hi Claire. I have an upcoming photo shoot and a little black dress is one of the required looks. Can you please post ideas on some edgy and sexy (and somehow still classy) black dresses? Thanks.”

What I love about the ubiquitous little black dress is that it’s the perfect canvas to play up your personal style aesthetic. Whether you want to stand out with a bold pop of color or keep things simple and chic, the LBD is every woman’s go-to to create that desired look.

Give this plunging neckline option a punchy boost with vivid hues and daring accessories. A sexy fringed sandal and an iridescent leather clutch mixed a shimmery jeweled necklace are the perfect pieces to give this look a bold pop.

Soft metallics work well when paired with a little black number, so opt for not-so-subtle accents to dress up a simple black frock.

Cap it off with a posh silver mani and a precise black liner for the final touch.

And for your final LBD style suggestion, highlight cutouts and asymmetric necklines with gold and yellow accents. For a dash of style, pluck gold statement jewelry, strappy Giuseppe Zanottis, and a note-worthy Jimmy Choo clutch.

To incorporate a bit more color, sizzle with a citrus beauty palette including a coral lip, a peachy-orange lid, and a buttery hued mani.

 And that’ll do it for today’s little black number inspirations!
Until next time fashionistas!
