Basic pieces make for the best transitional pieces! And that’s exactly what I set out to show you guys today. A little black dress is as basic as it gets, and I thought I’d share with everyone 3 ways to spice up that old LBD in your wardrobe. Now this black dress has been in my wardrobe for a good few years and I don’t particularly love wearing it anymore, as it doesn’t fit me that well – but that doesn’t mean it can’t be worn at all. Read below to find out how you can dress up your black dress in a few different ways!

For the first look, I paired the dress with a crochet crop top. This is one of the easiest looks you can wear – wear a cropped shirt over your black dress for work, or a slinky tank top for a casual day out. I went for a semi-formal look, pairing this white crochet crop top and going for a monochrome look with only black, white and silver accessories! Since the top’s become a little loose on me, I pulled the sleeves down my shoulder to make this an off-shoulder outfit, which is quite the rage these days!

Coming to the second look, which I sprinkled generously with a serious dose of drama. I added my royal blue shirt dress over my black dress, to make an entirely new outfit out of 2 pieces from my wardrobe. I love how the dress, or you can even go with a long tunic or shirt as well, instantly adds a whole lot of character into the look. It screams confidence and sass, and I quite love it! To highlight the black & blue I went with gold accessories, adding my tribal earrings from Forever 21 (which surprisingly has a hint of both blue & black) and a gold cuff which I recently bought off Koovs. To keep up with the gold theme, I finished the look off with these gold mirrored sunglasses and I was ready to go! I paired the outfit with black shoes, I would have preferred sling backs, but I unfortunately didn’t have one – you gotta make do with what you have! 😉

For the last and final look, I went with a laid back school/college girl vibe. I paired the dress with a sheer plaid shirt I’ve had for years and just added these oxfords for a casual, comfortable day look. Going with the comfortable vibe of the look, I tied my hair into a bun and went with almost zero accessories, except sunglasses, and pearl earrings. Add a nice leather backpack to this and you are ready to go back to college!
