Date Night | LBD Dawn to Dark

Date Night - LBD / Mom Style Lab

Black is…well, the new black! Black is timeless — it never goes out of style. Invest in a Little Black Dress (LBD) that you love and fits perfectly as this piece will be a classic, go-to item in your closet for years to come. As busy moms, it is imperative that we have easy, versatile pieces because who has a lot of time to spend thinking about styling an outfit?

For daytime, it’s easy to wear your LBD to a meeting, luncheon or the office by pairing it with a cropped jacket or layering a patterned blouse underneath. To take the look to evening, lose the layers, add your favorite statement necklace for a pop of color, put on some heels, grab a clutch, and you’re ready for date night.

Here are some quick tips for getting the most bang for your black:

• Tailor your dress to be the most flattering and wearable for your figure
• To some, black may feel boring – dress it up with fun accessories and shoes, and it will feel different every time you put it on
• Layer with pieces such as a button-down oxford and try adding a belt at the waist, or pair with a cardigan, feminine blouse, or blazer
• Slip on a cute sweater and wear your LBD as a skirt

Here, we’ve styled the same LBD four different ways to inspire you to get creative with this one essential piece.
