I’ve heard people talk about finding the perfect Little Black Dress for years, but honestly I didn’t really get it, beacause let’s be real, where was I going that I needed one? Well, as I’ve gotten older (unfortunately) and dipped my toes into the adult and professional worlds, I’ve come to understand the power of having that perfect LBD hanging in your closet. One dress that can be worn so many different ways? Count me in.
So even though I may be a little late to the party on this one, when I found this LBD at J Crew Factory (for a rocking price btw) I knew I had to put together a post on the many different ways to wear it for you all.
I love this particular number because it has a great silhouette, is a classic look with just the right amount of fun detailing, and it has pockets. Pockets on dresses are my absolute favorite!
Work/ Business Wear
This dress is perfect for work. All you have to do is grab some classic black pumps and a blazer and you’re good to go!
Find the pieces I paired it with linked here:
*Note: These pumps are a little on the pricer side for me and I’ll definitely be on the look out for a sale for you all, but I have to say : I really love them. They’re comfortable. They are worth it.
** My tote is an oldie but a goodie from my gal pal over at Kate Spade. I love all of her bags and she especially carries some great larger totes if you’re in the market for a bigger work bag.
This dress would also be perfect for networking events (let’s be real who ever knows what to wear to those) with some fun earrings, a blazer, and some conservative but fun shoes-see pink pumps below.
A More Casual Look
Switch your black pumps out for a pop of color and swap the blazer for a jean jacket and you’ve got the perfect look for Happy Hour or a lunch out with the girls! I also think this look would be perfect if you’re going straight from work to an early dinner date.
*My pink pumps are oldies but goodies from J Crew, but I linked a similar and affordable pair and the look would work with any fun shoe.
Night Out on the Town
Again, swap out your shoes, jacket and accessories and let this LBD take you from day to night. I chose a black (faux) leather moto jacket, some studded heels and a fringed clutch to take me from a classic sleek office look to one with a bit more edge and fun for a night out.
Hopefully you too, now believe in the power of the ever fabulous LBD and can rock it day and night!
