The little black dress probably has been part of a woman’s wardrobe longer than any other piece of clothing. The fashion staple never goes out of style, but everyone can use an update, or a spare. January and February are filled with a number of galas and special events, not to mention Valentine’s Day. A little black dress is the perfect staple piece to dress up or dress down, no matter the occasion. Here are a selection of styles from local boutiques, with tips to take your LBD from staple to stunning.
Chic & Charming
Best for: The office party or toasting with friends
Lace is in, and it’s nothing short of beautiful on a dress. Let the lace do the talking by keeping accessories to a minimum. A bold clutch and simple earrings make a perfect match.
Wear patterned leggings or tights—too distracting. Instead, finish with trendy velvet booties to have the whole office asking where you shop.
Sexy yet Classy
Best for: Concerts, galas or elegant dates
Simple can be stylish when it comes to the LBD, but find one with a small detail like these ruffle sleeves. A simple cashmere or fur shrug can make a statement and ward off the Colorado chill.
Bedazzle your look with too many accessories or colors. Let the dress be your statement of timeless holiday elegance.
