LBD 3 Ways
I feel like people don’t dress up a lot in the winter. There’s Valentine’s Day (today!) and Christmas parties … maybe a wedding or two … but that’s about it. And for me, doing it less frequently makes it a lot harder!
A couple of years ago, I went to see Courtney Carver speak on the Project 333 tour. It was super interesting, and one of my takeaways was that she has one event dress. She wears it to weddings and nice dinners and anything else that requires something dressy.
In some ways, that sounds amazing. You already know what you’re going to wear to every event, and you don’t have to spend time worrying about it. But in other ways, it sounds terrible. Because I really like putting together outfits! And also, you’d be wearing the same thing in all your pictures. 🙂
So these two things — dressing up in the winter and having one dress to choose from — lead me to this post: 3 ways to style your little black dress!
#1 Booties, Tights and a Jacket
This was by far the warmest of the three outfits. And it could work with any jacket you have — denim, moto, leather, whatever! And if your dress doesn’t have a statement neckline like mine does, I think a statement necklace would look really cute, too.
#2 Cardigan, a Scarf, Tights, and Heels
I wear cardigans over my dresses year round (because offices are cold in the summer), and adding a scarf makes it a little warmer and a little more interesting. 🙂 I’m also a big fan of wearing thermals under everything for a little extra warmth.
#3 Colored Cardigan and Statement Heels
There are always random warm fronts in the winter (for example, it was 70 degrees here on Sunday), and I see that as a time to break out the shoes that don’t look good with tights! 🙂
Which one is your favorite? I can’t decide! But in reality, I’m going to be spending the evening wearing leggings, eating pizza, and watching the Olympics. So it’s not like I have to choose one. Yet. 🙂
