We all have that one faithful little black dress that has been called upon countless times to make a good impression at the office, or to making a lasting impression on a date. But now, as the year draws to a close, and occasion after occasion is on the cards, from the end-of-year work event, to New Years Eve, your LBD is once again your go-to item in your wardrobe! Here's 5 ways to style the LBD so it lives up to it's stylish reputation and doesn't compromise yours.
## THE LBD WITH A PRINTED COAT
Instantly update your favourite black dress with a bold printed or colourful coat. Not only will it grab all the attention, it's the perfect bridge between being to formal and not being formal enough. **STYLE TIP:** Team your LBD with a pair of black heels, an animal print coat and a bold red lip for instant glam.
## THE LBD WITH A MOTO JACKET
Slide on that motorcycle jacket, and maybe some boots and channel your inner bad girl for the evening. **STYLE TIP:** This is the perfect New Year's Eve styling option that will not only ensure you are up to the minute style-cool, but when that temp drops after midnight, you'll still look super hot!
## THE LBD WITH A STATEMENT NECKLACE
Reach for a bold chunky necklace to add to your LBD, making it the eye-catching piece of your outfit. This is the most affordable way to up-style the most basic of little black dresses. Wear this look everywhere.
## THE LBD WITH FLATS
Give your feet a rest and this chic look a chance. Whether you go for a pair of super trendy trainers, statement sandals or even sliders, your LBD will instantly look on point and you won't have to kick off those heels at any time of your night (or day)! **STYLE TIP:** A pair of flats with your LBD is the perfect daytime option to an end of year office event, which shows you have made an effort, but are not trying too hard to win points.
## THE LBD WORN OVER A BUTTON UP
Layer your little black dress over your go-to button-up white shirt for a preppy, fresh look. This style will give you endless options of updating your LBD from occasion to occasion as you swap out a white shirt for a black one, or a long sleeve for a sleeveless option.
