5 Ways To Jazz Up A Boring Black Dress

Shopping Blog

There's a reason why a black dress is classic. It's not just that it looks great on everyone. It's also that it can be jazzed up and accessorized in a variety of ways. Here are a few ways you can make a boring black dress exciting. 

1. A Large Belt

A large belt will draw attention to your waistline, which is perfect for those who want to promote their hour glass figure. Belts break up the lines of a black dress, which is usually better on taller people than shorter, and better on longer dresses than higher cut dresses. 

2. A Statement Necklace

Statement necklaces draw attention upwards. A statement bib necklace is going to create a visually compelling aspect to an otherwise blank slate. Match your necklace to your purse to make sure that your outfit works well together, or pair your necklace with a bracelet for a very put- together look. 

3. A Perfect Pair of Pumps

Shoes can make the outfit. A pair of pumps can dramatically change the way that your outfit looks. Stiletto heels will make an outfit look elegant and dramatic, while Mary Janes make a black dress polished and work appropriate. A brightly colored set of shoes will set off a black dress, while black shoes create a more somber and classic look. 

4. A Set of Bangles

Put on a set of bangles for a trendy look. You can get an assortment of colors, mix metals, or do anything else you feel is appropriate for the look that you desire. Bangles are playful and creative and give you the opportunity to express your own personality. You can also throw on an anklet if you want an exotic and interesting look. 

5. A Long, Dramatic Scarf

Scarfs are perfect for keeping yourself warm in the winter and adding a lot of color and flair to an ordinarily very simple outfit. A dramatic scarf is going to draw attention upwards, much like a statement necklace. It can be worn in multiple ways, depending on the style that you're going for, and there are both light and heavy scarves depending on the time of the year. 

You usually want to limit yourself to one or two of the above options. If you try to add too much, you'll just look busy. Your local accessory store will have some fantastic options, and anything goes with a black dress.
