Fuse your dress with some jewellery -  chunky necklaces, heavy earrings or funky bracelets; Jewellery adds a new dimension to the outfit.

If you are someone who lets your jewellery reflect your tastes and personality then this is the perfect chance to indulge in some of your statement pieces.

2. Throw around a Scarf

The internet is filled with tutorials on how to adorn scarfs and wrap them around in the most creative ways possible. Likewise malls and fashion stores are flooded with the most gorgeous designs and patterns of stoles. Animal prints, florals, graphic designs, traditional prints and weaves look amazing when teamed with solid colours.

So drape around a stole/ scarf or a stylish dupatta ... probably one of the best ways to style a black dress.

3. Pair with a Jacket or Coat

Style up your LBD with a jacket.

I am a fan or animal prints and embroidered jackets. Even something as simple as a denim or plain cotton jackets do wonders.

4. Let your footwear make all the difference

Good shoes are game changers. From sneakers to heels, from closed shoes to peep toes, flats to stilettos, loafers to boots - anything that suits your personality will add that spark to your dress.

5. Consider the good old Belts

Women at times shy away from belts but if chosen and worn wisely, a belt can really accentuate one's curves. Belts need to necessarily be worn around the waist. One needs to find their sweet spot and position the belt accordingly. Wear it above your waist line or slightly above the hips. Your LBD will find a whole new meaning.

6. Get a Collar done

8. Have fun with Makeup and hair

There is absolutely nothing that makeup cannot do in the world of fashion and beauty. Just settle with a makeup look that goes well with your LBD... Nude look, bold lips, smokey eyes, shimmer eyes, bronzed face ... your world is full of options.

Alternately do not underestimate the potential of creative hairstyles. Simple styles like hair pulled back, pony tails, messy buns indeed look ver good
