Looking to spruce up your little black dress?

Here are five chic ways to help rock your outfit.

▲ Little black everything

On summery days, go for a small black clutch, black pumps or sandals, and a floppy black hat. In the winter, keep the clutch, ditch the hat, and exchange the sandals for black boots. Black tights may work for any season, but leave out one of the other accessories or the outfit will be too dark.

▲ Glamorous in gold

Wear your dress with a gold chain belt, gold bangles, and hoop earrings. Incorporate the color into your makeup with shimmery gold eyeshadow and highlight. Pair this look with nude-color heels.

▲ Simple and sparkly

A silver or white- jeweled choker or short necklace and matching medium-length earrings draw eyes without screaming for attention. Twist your hair into a high bun to make the outfit more sophisticated.

▲ Simple and sparkly

Match your black dress with a bright-colored clutch or handbag and white wedges or tennis shoes — yes, tennis shoes. Top off the look with a print jacket or coat.

▲ Classic

One word: pearls. Pair your little black dress with a pearl necklace, pearl earrings, and black flats or high heels.
