Style Guide: 5 Ways to Wear Your LBD This Holiday Season


1. The School Recital - You want to look nice for your children's school functions, though not too overdressed. Simple jewelry and dressy flats are the perfect way to dress your LBD down for these type of holiday events. And of course you need to pair it with a roomy satchel to hold your camera, program schedule, etc.

Shop the Look: French Connection stretch dress / Kaliko full skirt red wool coat  / Kate Spade New York Women's Tenor Wedge Pump / MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set multi-functional satchel (available in other colors) / GUESS Gold-tone Jeweled Watch / Kenneth Cole silver pave round stud earrings



2. The Corporate Event / Holiday Office Party - If you have a formal work function to attend during the holiday season, I suggest wearing what you typically wear to the office, only slightly dressed up. For example, the look above is for someone who tends to wear suits and skirts to work. Simply wear your little black dress with a little bling, heels, and a sleek clutch. If you need to layer for warmth, go for a pretty, polished blazer. If your office is more casual, wear something "dressy casual" for an office party, like slacks and a dressy blouse. Either way, keep it work-appropriate. Don't wear anything too revealing.

3. The Holiday Dinner Party - Whether at a restaurant or someone's home, you can wear that little black dress with simple black pumps or dressy flats and a cute little clutch. Go simple with jewelry, so you can dress up the look with a metallic belt.

4. The Ballet or a Gala Event - If you have a black tie event to attend during the holidays, you don't have to go out and buy a floor-length gown. Dress up your LBG with a major statement necklace & cocktail ring, embellished stilettos, an opera clutch, and some faux fur.
