Accessorizing a Little Black Dress; black, gold or silver

When choosing accessories for a little black dress....there are so many choices.

A little black dress can be the perfect backdrop for any accessory color, but I prefer to stick with simple and classic; black with pearl, soft gold or silver.  I'm really loving silver right now.

I have a formula that I follow; if my dress has an interesting neckline that should be showcased, I skip the necklace and choose a very pretty pair of dangle earrings that dust the shoulders and show off the dress.  I add a stack of delicate bracelets; often two or more of the same style on each wrist.  Sometimes I will wear two on one wrist and one on the other for a touch of asymmetry and then I add the perfect pair of black shoes.  Black velvet shoes can add some texture while keeping the lines clean and simple.

In this season of color, I love a perfectly accessorized little black dress above all others.

  4. There is nothing as useful as a little black dress! I just recently got myself a perfect one that can be both dressed up and dressed down in a very comfortable fabric and flattering cut -I bought my self two of it as I know I will love it and wear it over and over again! I like the accessories you choose - especially the silver bracelets!

    1. If I found a perfect black dress and there were more than one available, I would buy them both. Hope to see your post in that dress!

  7. I often have a hard time deciding between gold and silver, necklace or bracelet or earrings, colorful bag or black. Decisions, decisions!
    I would love to have that black dress you featured. Looks like it would flattering on just about any figure, don't you think?

  8. You do what I would love to do, dance.

    I stopped about three years ago, but I'm hoping to get back into it next year. Beautiful!

    I went LBD shopping in July! Glad that it can be worn in any season. Your accessorizing tips definitely help make the transition much smoother!
