How to wear a little black dress

"When a little black dress is right, there is nothing else to wear in its place."
~ Wallis Warfield Simpson

One rule of fashion: Every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress.

Even before most of us were born, the necessity of having a little black dress was already widely observed by women and fashion observers. Simple and elegant looking little black dresses are the ones that classify as little black. Something trendy that can anytime go outdated may not qualify.

What makes a little black dress timeless is its ability to be worn all year round. You can dress it up and down depending on the occasion or weather. The following are ways to wear it:

Wear your little black dress with knee high boots.

Layer your little black dress over black tights. If the weather is cold, you can complete your look with a black leather jacket or a coat.

Layer your little black dress with colored tights if the style and cut suits.

If it is warmer, you can wear your little black dress as is and have fun with your shoes.
