Here comes the annual crisis of “what in the world will I wear to this year’s Christmas party?” We’ve got answers for you, and none of them involve buying a brand new dress when you’re already short on funds.
You can fancy up your gorgeous Little Black Dress to look just like new with some well-placed and on-trend accessories. We’ve scoured Pinterest to pick out the best ideas, and here are 5 you’ll love:
1. WITH A SCARF
Luckily for you, one of this year’s best fashion pieces is the blanket-scarf. Slip into your sleek black dress and wrap a festive tartan scarf around your neck for a big wow factor. You can also go more formal with a solid-colored or infinity scarf. Your call!
2. ADD A CHUNKY NECKLACE
Audrey Hepburn did it best in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Imitate her iconic look and shop for a big necklace that will go nicely with your LBD. If your dress is a little longer, up the princess look with pearls or cascading jewels. For shorter styles, try a “bib” necklace.
3. PAIR WITH TALL BOOTS
This year, toss the stilettos and go for something easier on your feet. Brown leather boots are all the rage for the fall/winter season, and who says you can’t throw a dress into the mix? Show up at your Christmas party or family ‘do wearing fab knee-highs and a matching clutch purse. Ta da!
4. WITH RED TIGHTS
We all know a red dress and black tights go together. Why not the other way around? You’ll have to be a little daring to pull off this look, but it’s super cute to try if you have a knee-length LBD. Go for a pair of hot red tights to really stand out, or try a maroon shade to be perfectly on-trend.

5. PUT A BOW ON IT
In keeping with all the gift-wrapping that’s going on in your house at this time of year, why not cinch a sleek LBD with a festive bow when you head out to your Christmas cocktail party? If you ask me, this is the cleverest idea, and you can choose what colour to try: white, red, or green!
