The Little Black Dress- or LBD as pop-culture has deemed it- is the ultimate party outfit. The versatile piece granted to the world by Coco Chanel has paved its way into every urban woman's wardrobe. No garment has been able to match the chicness of the LBD. The universal style icon, Audrey Hepburn, wore hers with pearls, sending the world in an elated LBD-induced frenzy. It's no wonder we turn to this iconic silhouette when the rest of our wardrobe fails us.
As a fashion observant, and someone who owns an ultra-capsule wardrobe, I am aware that a black dress is all I need to get through this party season. The dress is a blank canvas of sorts that lets you experiment with accessories - dress it up or down, you're guaranteed to make a statement regardless.
If you have qualms about how to style your classic LBD, we have curated 11 looks with jewelry and accompanying accessories that best suit majority of the purposes. Cocktail-party dress designers like Gauri and Nainika, MxS, Deme by Gabriella, and more especially suit our interests for the fast-approaching New Year's Eve party that make us want to put our foot towards a fresh year looking our best - and remember to accentuate your dress with baubles that best suit your persona.
