Keep your LBD demure, it shouldn’t be so memorable that the next time you wear it people remember it.
I believe that we all know by now that EVERY woman needs a little black dress. They come in handy for so many occasions. I recently went to a networking event here in Detroit where Mikki Taylor editor of Essence magazine was giving tips on how to maximize your little black dress.
Here are the go to accessories that Mikki says scream “absolutely fabulous’ every time
1.A statement necklace
6.A structured lady like bag
7.A transition clutch –meaning when you check your bag at coat check you pull a statement clutch with your essentials in it.
8.Conversation worthy pumps
9.Bright accents that wow
10.A knockout red lipstick.
I absolutely agree with everything that Mikki said. The things on this list can take your LBD from basic to bodacious!
Mikki gave a few more bonus tips that I believe can’t be forgotten. Keep your LBD demure, it shouldn’t be so memorable that the next time you wear it people remember it. Secondly, it should also stand the test of time. Your dress should not come back from the dry cleaner shiny; if so you need to invest a little more so that you can have a dress that will last. Lastly, but more importantly, foundation wear is a MUST! Don’t invest in a great dress and cheap foundation wear, purchase foundation wear that will do what you want it to and help you achieve the optimal look.
