Three Ways To Dress Up Your Little Black Dress

The Little Black Dress or LBD is a staple piece in most every woman’s wardrobe. Since an LBD is usually a simpler look, the best thing you can do is add drama, sass or sophistication with the accessories you choose. Think of your little black dress as the canvas, and the accessories you wear as the paint. Jewellery from Peoples is the perfect way to dress up your little black dress, and we’re giving you three spectacular ideas!

Bring The Drama: Accessorize With Diamond Styles

Your little black dress is the perfect way to showcase jewellery set with sparkling diamonds. The tip here is to go big, but NOT to overdo it. Start with a pair of diamond earrings. Depending on the occasion, you can accessorize with simple fashion or solitaire studs or elegant drop or dangle styles. Earrings draw the eye upward to your face and add sparkle to your smile.

Add in one or more diamond necklace styles. Layering is still a great trend, and a layered look pairs perfectly with simple stud earrings. The trick is to make a big emphasis in only one area – like earrings or necklaces.

A slender diamond fashion or tennis bracelet wraps the wrist in sparkling style, while a diamond fashion ring is the perfect way to complete your look.

When you accessorize with diamonds, you are truly bringing the drama. Diamonds let you sparkle and changes the feel of your LBD. Experiment with diamond styles to find a look that suits you best.

Keep it Classic: Accessorize With Gold Styles

Dress up your LBD with jewellery styles in classic gold. One of the great things about gold is that it comes in colours – and they are perfectly mixable! Warm yellow, cool white and blushing rose gold all work together to create the classic look you’re going for.

Begin with a pair of gold earrings. Hoop styles are a lovely and basic way to draw attention to your ears without taking away from the rest of your ensemble. Remember to create a focal point on only one body part.

Around the neck, a glamorous grouping of layering necklaces, including gold chains and pendants is an on-trend look for today. alternatively, adding a stack of layered bracelets is a great option – particularly if your LBD has short sleeves. Layer on bolos, line bracelets bangles and more until your stack is just right.

Finish off your look with a ring – or a lot of rings. A layer of Stackable Expressions rings is a great place to start.

Remember though, to only put emphasis on one part of your body. For instance, if you’re wearing a group of layering necklaces, keep the look on your ears and wrists a little simpler. Too many layers take away from your look, so a single focal point is best.

Make It Sophisticated: Accessorize With Pearls

Wearing pearls with your little black dress is a timeless and sophisticated way to shine. Pearls and black go together perfectly and the pairing is a traditional and elegant favorite.

A classic pearl strand around the neck is a great place to start. While creamy white pearls are the traditional choice, a coloured pearl strand – say in rich gold or bold black – can add a bit of an edge to your LBD.

A pair of pearl earrings draws the eyes to the face. Available in a plethora of styles – from studs to drops – pearl earrings can be as simple or as ornate as you choose. To create a little drama, pair bold pearl and diamond drops with a simple strand necklace. You don’t want to look too matchy-matchy, and this is one way to stand out.

Add a favorite pearl bracelet or pearl ring to complete your look. Remember, pearls are a naturally soft, organic gemstone – and they’re not really a stone at all. It’s best not to stack too many layers of jewellery with pearls as they will become scratched and dull. To maintain the timeless and sophisticated look of pearls with your little black dress, less is truly more.
