The Little Black Dress...

Every woman needs a LBD!!!
Since Coco Chanel introduced it in 1926, the little black dress has become the one garment you can always slip on when you aren't quite sure what to wear for the evening. The perfect little black dress is simple yet always elegant. Choose the right one and you will feel sexy, sleek, and chic! All thats required is some fashion sense and more importantly imagination.
There are several ways to wear your LBD depending on the occasion. Accessorize with bold statement pieces. As a symbol of timeless elegance, nothing says glamor like a luxurious pair of pearls. When dressing for a special occasion, grab your silver and gold-toned fashion pieces to spice up your LBD. Metallic strappy sandals, diamond-encrusted bangles, and sequined clutches are small touches that can change your little black dress from day to evening quickly. You can also accessorize with fishnet stockings, a bold bracelet, necklice, or some leopard pumps with a matching bag.
I also recommend to wear dramatic makeup to add additional color to this wardrobe classic. Don’t ignore lips, eyes, fingernails and toes; apply bold eye-shadows and ruby red lipstick or use the daring colors of the seasons to polish your fingernails and toenails. When applied correctly, makeup is the ultimate accessory for the fashionable woman wearing the little black dress.
