It seems as though the little black dress will forever be considered a wardrobe staple, and rightly so! Throughout the Fall and even Winter, building your outfits around a black dress gives you more style options than you might expect. Of course, it’s a perfect piece to wear to many formal events. However, it can also be incorporated into everyday outfits for school, work, errands and more. The idea here is taking full advantage of the outfit options this piece has to offer: fully dressed up to dressed down. Whether it falls above or below the knee, is fitted or loose, has long sleeves, cap sleeves or no sleeves, the only rule here is that you feel comfortable and confident in whatever silhouette you choose. Then, add a few layers (don’t be afraid to even layer a top over your dress) and finish the look off by accessorizing with all the scarves, boots and fun hats Fall has to offer. You may find you’re even able to make use of things in your closet that you otherwise might not reach for very often. Here are a few different looks for inspiration:
