Spice Up That Basic LBD

When it comes to dresses, the LBD (little black dress) is one of the most versatile pieces, and thus a staple in a woman’s wardrobe. Although I have acquired various LBDs the last few years, I can never look away when I pass by one of these must-haves at a store. Weeks ago, I was walking by an H&M store and saw this dress on a mannequin. I liked its simplicity and lightweight fabric suitable for a summer evening in Washington, D.C. The very affordable price helped me decide, without any doubt, to close the deal! I recently wore it to an early dinner with a girlfriend. To spruce up this basic and straight cut LBD, I accessorized it with silver jewelry and a contrasting, bright clutch.

Thank you very much for reading!
