The holidays are here! And with holiday cheer comes holiday parties. If you’re unsure about what to wear, there’s always one classic option — a basic black dress spiced up with beautiful accessories. Nicknamed the LBD, the little black dress has been a fashion staple for years. Introduced by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in 1926, the signature little black dress can be worn by women of all ages, shapes and sizes. Whether the length is long, short or somewhere in between, the LBD will be perfect for any festive evening. Holiday attire doesn’t have to be overly flashy or complicated. If the silhouette is simple, create drama with intense makeup, a sweeping up-do, a statement necklace or a one-of-a-kind stiletto. If your dress speaks for itself, go with a simple, chic pump. Choose something that flatters your figure and makes you feel good. Whatever you wear this holiday season, wear it with poise. Confidence is the only accessory you need to be the best dressed.
