There are few things that can make a woman feel more femanine than a black dress. It is the definition of timeless, classy, elegance, and style. No matter the occasion a black dress can be dressed up or down just by changing a few things. Feel confident, put together, and beautiful no matter where your day takes you. Here are five easy changes to make to your outfit without ever changing out of your favorite dress to make your look casual or glam.
Every outfit needs the perfect pair of shoes and you can dress an outfit up or down simply by changing your shoes. For a dressier look either for work or a night out, simply slip on your favorite heels or a cute pair of dressy sandals. If you want to dress down your look, try a nice pair of tennis shoes or some casual sandals or flats. Take your look from chic to comfy by a simple change of shoes. Go from work to a night on the town by keeping your change of shoes in your car.
Another easy change is by switching out your bag. For work you may need a large tote to hold everything you need, but for a night out you can switch to an elegant clutch just to hold the essentials. If you are running errands you may want to grab a simple cross body to keep your hands free. Whichever bag you need to fit the occasion, it can change your look easily and conveniently.
The next easy switch you can make is your jacket. A cardigan may be perfect for the chilly office but not the style for a night out. Grab your favorite coat or leather jacket for a more dressed up look. A jean jacket could be the perfect swap for a spring day. If it is cooler in the morning and warmer throughout the day, layering a thin jacket or sweater is the best way to stay stylish and comfortable.
Whether you are dressing up or down, jewelry is a must. It is the way to add that something extra to an outfit but still keeping it simple or taking it to the next level. If you are dressing up your look, layered necklaces are the latest trend. Layer together some beautiful gold chains for a look of stylish elegance. Add some sparkle to your hands with some gorgeous rings and perhaps some bracelets. For your earrings some gorgeous diamond studs or simple gold hoops would be perfect. You can keep it simple and elegant or even add some more catchy statement pieces, whichever is the most you. If you are dressing down your look try a simple chain necklace, stackable rings, fun earrings, and stylish bangles. Adding a pop of color or pattern with your jewelry is a fun way to add a new element to your outfit.
The last way to change the look of your outfit is by adding in a belt. Whether your dress is more flowy or is more streamline to your body a belt can be the perfect eye catching accessory. For a dressy look, add a gorgeous chain link belt, a flowy satin belt, or a sparkly belt. If you are dressing down you could try a leather or braided belt. A belt is a good way to cinch in the waist, helping you look slimmer and pulling your outfit together.
A Classic Pattern
Thankfully, patterns seem to always be in style and can easily be considered dressy or casual. Choose from gingham, floral, checkered, stripes, geometric, or polka dots. A patterned dress can easily be dressed up or down and the balck background keeps you looking stylish and put together no matter where the day takes you.
The Perfect Outfit
When choosing the perfect black dress, pick one that fits well, is made well so it is durable, timeless so it never goes out of style, and makes you feel confident and beautiful. The perfect dress can easily go from work, running errands, a night out, or a dinner party. It should flatter you which means finding a dress that fits you well. Worry less about the size of the dress and more so about how it fits you. Clothes are made to fit our bodies, not the other way around. Remember all sizes are different and all bodies are different. Getting your clothes tailored is another inexpensive way to take any piece to the next level. Adding in your favorite accessories will give it your personal touch and flare, and make your black dress your favorite outfit no matter the occasion.
