8 ways to wear that staple LBD

Every girl needs to own a staple little black dress. If you follow me on instagram you will notice I wear a lot of black outfits - I think it is such a classic look.

So I thought for my next blog, I would take the most basic LBD and create 8 different outfits...

The dress I chose for this challenge was a simple £7.99 dress from Missguided (which appears to have gone up in price... but here is the link

I could have gone on forever - they are so easy to style for any occasion, but here are my 8 ways to wear that staple LBD...

1. Holiday style

Wear your LBD with a kimono and your favorite sandals for a casual holiday vibe.

Kimono - Boohoo
Sandals - Francesca's 

 2. As a skirt

Wear your LBD with a jumper to create the idea that the dress is a skirt, team with tights and trainers for a casual but cosy look.

Jumper - H&M
Trainers - Converse

 3. Cold days

Wear your LBD with a big cardigan, scarf, thick tights (I need to buy some!) and some boots for a great winter look.

Tights - Primark

4. Work style

Wear your LBD with a a smart blazer or jacket and your classic work shoes (and maybe some tights) and you can go to work looking good.

Shoes - Debenhams

 5. Casual day out

Wear your LBD with a bomber jacket and pumps for a great casual day out.

 6. Smart day out

Wear your LBD with a jacket and your favorite smart shoes when you're off on a nice day out.

 7. Night out

Wear your LBD with some killer heels and a statement necklace and you're good to go on that night out.

Shoes - Public Desire

 8. With a shirt

Wear your LBD with a shirt and you can create any type of look you want. I have gone for the casual look with trainers and a A&F shirt, but you could team it with a nice smart shirt and some heels for a more formal look.

Shirt - Abercrombie & Fitch
Trainers - Nike

I hope I have helped someone with outfit ideas for their little black dress & if you don't have one - go and buy one now! I recommend this Missguided dress just because it is so plain that you really can wear it with anything!
