5 Ways to Make Your LBD Holiday Party Ready

Holiday party season means, reds, greens and sparkle, right? Well, not if you don't have the time to actually get a festive look together, never mind have the funds to buy a new outfit for your office party, family gathering, and hometown friend reunion. This is where the classic Little Black Dress saves the day! You may feel like an LBD is too plain or you wear it all the time, but these styling tips will help you make your outfit a little more festive for your next Christmas party without breaking the bank.
  • Throw on a statement jacket - Whether sequined, a fun print or a bright color, a statement jacket can turn your LBD into a whole new outfit. I'm loving the statement clutch in the photo below to match!

  • Rock a red lip - There's no better time than the holidays to flaunt a holiday red pout. This small makeup touch can make your black LBD more dressy and festive. I personally like a bright red, similar to Leighton Meester's look below, but darker reds work just as well.
  • Stand tall with statement heels - Whether they are a Christmas red or have an intricate design, statement heels will lift your LBD to new heights, literally.
  • Add a touch of sparkle with a statement necklace - Yes, statement necklaces are a typical staple for added glitz, but they look fab with LBDs. Plus, just that one accessory is needed for jewelry, so throw on the necklace and you're good to go.
  • Style your locks into a classic updo - Although not an added accessory or article of clothing, a gorgeous hairstyle can truly complete your look. A hair accessory, such as a glittery barrette or hair bow, can also update your LBD and make your outfit more festive.

Look no further than your LBD for your next holiday party outfit and dress it up with festive accessories, hair and makeup.
