5 Ways to accessorize your Little Black Dress

5 Ways to accessorize your Little Black Dress

The little black dress is perhaps one of the most iconic and traditional staples in any woman’s wardrobe. But, not every woman knows exactly how to liven up that pretty black dress that’s hanging in their closet to breathe a new life into it.

Short, long, A-line, or flair; there are a countless number of shapes and styles that could be added to your wardrobe. But, it can sometimes be intimidating if you want to push the envelope beyond the standard black on black. Take a deep breath, there’s nothing to fear about accessorizing this classic dress choice and creating that look you’ve been dreaming of.


Footwear is of the utmost importance when accessorizing your little black dress; try to steer clear of all black. Go nude, choose a bold print, or opt for a colourful heel.

Steering clear of all black helps you break the colours hence balance.

Leather jackets and denim accessories

Leather jackets and denim accessories can also flatter a little black dress. While jean fabric will help to make it more casual, black leather will also elevate it to a higher fashion standard.

This can work well if you are from work and you feel like blowing off some steam on a Friday evening.

A belt and waist cinchers

This is a great way to add interest and shape to any little black dress. This is also a great time to throw in some colour. Rich burgundies or bright blues, any colourful belt will rest well against the black fabric.

Apart from colourful belts, you can also do silver and gold waist cinchers.


Not only are they functional in keeping you warm, they can update the look of your dress. Whether you stick with neutrals or brighter colours, it’s hard to go wrong when adding a cute cardigan to a black dress.

Colourful jewels

Whether it’s a bright necklace, earrings, or bracelets you can add a little pop of colour to your little black dress to give it a little more sass. Neon colours go exceptionally well with this look.
