Holiday Party Outfit Ideas With a Little Black Dress (5 Ways To Style)
As much as I preach about all-black outfits, something about a black dress has always made me feel like I was kindaaa dressed for a memorial service. The outfits TME came up with for your little black dress are by no means funeral-esque. I’m officially inspired to give my LBDs another chance…

1. Toughen Up A Little Black Dress w/ Leather Jackets & Tough-Girl Boots
My GO-TO. Leather jackets + booties (tough-girl boots, as S would say) can spice up any outfit. Yes, spice up. What’s spicier than moto-chick vibes? I mean…look at Julieta! Killing it.
Julieta paired her leather jacket and tough-girl boots with a delicate, feminine bag. If it’s feeling too moto-chick-esque, just add a feminine piece like that! Or go all out with a studded, black leather bag. I’m here for both.

2. Try Embellished Layers & Snakeskin
Ahhh good ol’ snakeskin. I’m not over it yet. I don’t think I will be, honestly. S’ snakeskin boots especially will never get old for me. They’re just too fun not to love. Much more holiday party, much less Victorian mourning.
As for the embellished layers… S’ sweater and bag have little embellished details. I’ve been eyeing so many statement jackets with details just like that. It screams rock ‘n’ roll, and I LOVE.

3. Throw On Statement Boots & Earrings
Try pairing statement boots with your little black dress. Wear OTK like Scotti, or a fun red like Laura. Instant Vogue moment. Add some statement earrings, and you’re ready for a holiday party.
(Picking out fun shoes and statement earrings is way more fun than it probably should be. So many amazing choices. And it’s a look that’s so, so easy to achieve.)

4. …Or Add Sexy Tights & Heels
Yesss the sexy tights!! I want ’em all. I didn’t realize the variety of tights out there, but wow. There are some good ones…and some really, really bad ones. I won’t lie, I almost included the Gucci ones because they’re so ridiculous and a whopping $600. For tights. No judgment, but I just can’t….
Pair your sexy tights with some holiday heels, and you’ve got legs for daysss.

5. Dress Down A Little Black Dress w/ Flare Jeans
Linzi’s got a whole different take on her LBD. Try layering it with flares! This makes staying warm so much easier without having to wear a ton of puffy layers. Pair with a pretty clutch, fun earrings and gold heels to make it a little more festive.
