One Dress, Three Ways

One Dress, Three WaysI’ll admit, I have a lot of clothes. I can’t help it, I just love fashion and finding new things to wear. I love trying fun new trends but for the most part, I gravitate toward simpler pieces that can be worn in a lot of different ways. One of my favorite things to buy are little black dresses, especially little black t-shirt dresses. I love their versatility and how comfy they are! They’re so easy to dress up or down and they seem to work for almost every occasion. I’ve got quite a few already and my latest find is this tiered version that even has pockets. It’s been on constant rotation in my closet and I thought it would make a fun post if I showed you some of the different ways I’ve been wearing it. So here it is: one dress, three ways.

1 romwe black dress old navy denim jacket jenn ardor loafersThis first look is what I call my “running errands” outfit. This is an outfit that can be wore for running around town or in a casual setting. I picked up this denim jacket a couple of months ago and I love finding new things to wear it with. I love pairing it with dresses for a more dressed down look and I think it looks super cute with just about anything. It’s a great layering piece and I love how the denim looks with this black dress.

1 black dress denim jacket tassel necklaceI always love a good statement necklace and lately I’ve been drawn to big tassel necklaces. They have a fun, summery feel to them and instantly make any outfit look more put together. I love the black and gold combo of this one and although I just got it, I can tell I’ll be wearing it a lot!

1 black dress denim jacket ootdI got the chance to try several pairs of shoes including these penny loafers from JENN ARDOR and I’m so glad I did! I have a serious weakness for shoes and although I was initially a little wary of these (the prices seemed too good to be true!), I was really happy when I got them! Everything fit perfectly and the quality is really nice- they definitely seem more expensive than they are. These black suede loafers are really cute and I love the fringe and bows on them. And they are so comfy! They have a lot of cushion and almost feel like wearing slippers around.

1 black dress denim jacketI finished off this look with a big leather tote for carrying everything and another new favorite of mine- this L’Oreal lipstick. It’s a pretty mauve-y pink and although it has a matte finish, it feels really creamy. It’s the perfect everyday shade in my book.

In those cases, I like adding lots of bright touches to my outfit. Pink is such a fun color to wear and I own a lot of it, plus I love how it looks with black so that’s usually what I end up going with.

2 ootd black dress and pink cardiganThis neon pink cardigan from J. Crew is one of my favorites. It is seriously so bright that it makes any outfit instantly look cheery and fun. I also added this fun pink clutch that I got as a gwp from Ulta. How cute is it? I think the cutouts and tassel are really cute and it’s a great size.

2 black dress and bright accessories ootdI usually only wear one statement piece of jewelry at a time, but I loved how the bright blue from these tassel earrings looked with this pink necklace. I’m not a big fan of bold, heavy earrings but these ones feel pretty light and they are so fun to wear. Of course, I also added bright pink lipstick to this outfit.

2 black dress and heelsI finished this look with these fun black sandals from JENN ARDOR. They have a low heel so they’re really comfortable to wear and I loved how they made this outfit just a little dressier. These shoes actually remind me a lot of the ones I wore for high school dances. I wish I had kept them, they would be so in right now!

3 ootd black dress burgundy heelsI decided to keep this outfit a little more simple and just dress it up with nice accessories. That’s the great thing about a little black dress- it can really stand on its own. I added a darker berry lip for more of a dramatic look and carried a small black pouch instead of a big bag.

3 ootd black dress statement necklace black clutchI love sparkly pieces for nights out so I added this bold statement necklace. The mirrored crystals add plenty of sparkle and I loved how it made my outfit look more polished and complete.

3 black dress burgundy velvet heelsThe final touches were these fun velvet heels from JENN ARDOR. They have a higher heel than the black sandals from my brunch outfit and are a little nicer for a night on the town. And how pretty is the burgundy velvet? These are so nice- in fact, I keep wearing them around the house just because they’re so pretty to look at!

    Thanks for the inspiration on how to take one dress and wear it multiple ways! I struggle with being creative with what’s already in my closet but your post gives me some ideas to try.

    It is always great to invest in a cute LBD. It is really such a versatile piece of clothing that you can go from casual to formal with just a few accessories added to the outfit! I like the one with the pink cardigan. That is a really cute way to wear your LBD.
