The perfect LBD is supposed to be something simple that can be dressed up or dressed down for every occasion. But, not all LBD’s are created equal. While it’s most convenient to have one dress that you can makeover, it can also be a good thing to have LBDs in a variety of styles, so that you always have options.
Dress down your LBD by keeping your look casual and soft. Wear as little jewelry as possible, but if you do want to accessorize choose a colorful scarf, oversized bag, sunglasses or chunky jewelry. For shoes, do not wear any fancy pumps. You want to keep this look as casual as possible, so opt for ballet flats, flip-flops, or sandals. Top off your look by adding a flower to your hair.

You want to make sure your LBD for a date night is both flirty and cautious. Bare a little skin by rocking the one-shoulder look. It’s the perfect way to be sexy, while giving your date something to desire.
If you are on your way to an evening dinner or cocktail party, then a LBD is the perfect choice for you to wear for a night out on the town. You can glamorize your dress by layering necklaces, sporting a long stand of pearls around your neck, or adding a sparkling brooch. Grab onto a glitzy clutch to complete your look.
To the Club
When you go out to the club, you want to make sure you look sexy and stand apart from the other girls in the crowd. Dress your LBD by wearing flashy jewels, or add on a sequin skirt or shirt. You may also choose to shorten the dress a little bit, and pair with your most fabulous pair of pumps.
To the Office
Just because you are wearing a LBD to the office, doesn’t mean you have to keep it monotone. Spruce up your LBD with a colorful cardigan or button down sweater. You can even add a belt around your waist to change the look of the dress.
Girls Night Out
Going out with the girls, gives you an opportunity to make your LBD a little bit more funky. A short leather jacket will add an edgy look, or wear a bright-colored cropped jacket. Colored shoes will make the simple dark hue of the dress pop.
