TIPS n’ TRICKS: LBD FIVE WAYS

By 0 , , Permalink 5

Happy new month munchkins! I can’t believe we are just a few weeks away from the final quarter of 2014! Is it too soon to start counting down to Christmas? Haha! Hope your day’s treating you just right! 🙂

 

I always try to challenge my creativity and maximise my wardrobe by creating different looks with one item and today’s item is the classic LBD. It’s a “rule of fashion” that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Today I’ll be sharing with you a few tips and tricks on how to style your LBD to create five totally different looks! 🙂

 LOOK 1

I love that this look is easy, yet chic! I just threw a tuxedo blazer over and to add a pop of colour, a neon scarf.

Here I played the dress up as a top. I love how the black ‘top’ mutes this bright yellow skirt and to add a much welcome pop, I threw over a statement belt. Brunch, anyone?
