Every woman knows that owning a classic little black dress or LBD is a must. It’s perhaps the only outfit that you can really wear to any event: a big gala opening, a last-minute dinner with friends, a great party, or even the office. It may seem like a no-brainer, but the right accessories will totally change the look of your outfit, thus, saving you from having to run out and buy another dress for every new occasion. The addition of an eye-catching statement necklace will give your LBD a new lease on life.
A little black dress is an excellent base for wearing various accessories that grab attention, such as chandelier earrings, a statement necklace, chunky bracelets, sky high heels, or an adjustable belt. I thrifted this Bailey 44 little black dress from the Salvation Army in San Diego for $8.99. Did you peep the awesome faux leather panels on this little black dress? It’s exactly the reason why I pulled this dress from the rack. A quick google search to determine the retail price for this dress showed that I could always buy it new for $184 on Amazon. So, I’m going to add this one in the thrift score column for sure!
As I have worn this dress a few times as a simple LBD, I decided to change up the look with the addition of this gorgeous neon yellow statement necklace. I actually have this statement necklace in a few different colors as I love them so much. I think they are simply the epitome of what a statement piece should be – a statement! You have seen me wear a different colored one here on the blog before. Unfortunately, I am unable to give your specifics as to where to get these as I received these as a gift from a friend. I would say that I am pretty sure she did not pay more than $35.
I opted for these funky multi-colored pumps mainly because the neon yellow hues in the pumps matches the statement necklace. I bought these LFL “Elektrik” pumps from Nordstrom Rack during their Black Friday sale for $12.99. Yes, that price is correct. Yes, Black Friday shoe deals are awesome. However, you can still get it here, for $60.
I hope I have convinced you that you can easily jazz up a little black dress with some awesome statement jewelry.
