My weekdays are so regimented between work and family life, that I look forward to weekends full of absolutely NO forced plans and “no brainer” attire! With that said, it doesn’t get any easier than a LBDD {little black day dress}! The key to make your otherwise simple dress make a statement is all in the accessories. The addition of jewelry, a handbag and even a pretty wide brim floppy hat or fedora can easily take your whole look from a six to a stunning 10!

The point is not to overdo it if the occasion doesn’t call for “fancy”…but if it does, learning how to maximize your wardrobe by remixing your current closet staples will save you lots of money and frustration. Practice styling your favorite closet staples with different shoes and accessories, and see how many different looks you can create. Some of your favorite summer dresses can even transition into fall with the addition of a poncho or long cardigan and boots. To help in remembering your creations, snap pictures of the outfits and refer to them when you pull out that staple garment to repeat it! If you find yourself still hitting the malls and spending more money for every outing or occasion then it may be well worth it to invest in a stylists’ services {like myself!(shameless plug)} to guide you and teach you how to shop within your own closet.

Here I’m wearing a thrifted designer dress, but you can shop similar cute, day appropriate black dresses herehereherehere & here. I’d love to hear about your favorite LBDD or any black dresses that you’ve had your eye on in the comments section below!
