The Little Black Dress - Cocktail Black Dress

South Beach Miami on a Budget - Fashion


Timeless fashion

A little black dress is something that any woman should have in her closet. Not because Coco Chanel said so, but because it is practical, works for many occasions, and can save you a lot of headaches trying to figure out what to wear.

Black Dress.

To be clear, a little black dress or LBD is usually a short black dress.

Now, let's figure out how to style it.

How to wear an LBD

It all depends on the occasion.

Are you going to the formal event, cocktail party, classical music concert, or plan to stroll down the boardwalk in South Beach Miami?

The occasion dictates how you will wear this dress, your accessories, shoes, etc.. Which brings up the next question - what to wear with a little black dress?

Formal events

For the formal occasion (gala, fund-raiser) or a cocktail party, wear your little black dress with dressy solid color shoes (red, blue, gold), a small purse or a bracelet bag, and statement jewelry. I like wearing stackable bracelets. What do you like?

On a date

If you are going on a date, you can wear your little black dress with a leather or corduroy jacket, and comfortable shoes or fashion sneakers. Pair it with a boy hat or a beret for a more fun look.

The boardwalk scroll

For the boardwalk stroll, you can wear a black t-shirt dress with a cardigan or color block hooded corduroy jacket and fashion sneakers.

Nail polish color makes a big difference

If you are going to the formal event, wear a gentle light color nail polish - pale pink, grey, or gold. For the nightclubs or hanging out with friends, use your creativity. You can wear funky nail polish designs or bright color nail polish like yellow, green, hot pink. It will make you feel unique.

The crazy and creative nail designs are often good conversation starters.

Synthetics or cotton?

When traveling, we recommend staying with synthetic fabrics because synthetic doesn’t wrinkle as fast as cotton.

How do I wear an LBD?

Usually, I wear an LBD when I don't know what to wear. With the bright solid color shoes, crystal multicolor long dangle earrings, and the unusual design small purse, I create the new, unexpected look within a few minutes.

Extra benefit

Not to forget - black makes you look slimmer.
