Let me guess, you just realised that the new little black dress you recently bought yourself for Valentine’s dinner date doesn’t look anything different from all the other little black dresses in your closet? Sure, this one has a ruffled trim at the bottom. But hey, your boy won’t spot the difference.
He will just think you are wearing your old LBD. Whereas he actually made an effort to get a new tuxedo and take you to the most popular restaurant in the town.
And what is the point of getting a new dress if he doesn’t notice it, right? Ha, to be honest, you don’t see much of the difference either. Sure, the dress is new. But it’s black, plain and looks the same as any other littče black dresses hanging there in your closet.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU BOUGHT THE SAME LBD AGAIN
Anyway, what is bought is bought. And if you are not taking your new LBD back to the store and replacing it with one of the little black dresses from my list, be sure to read this carefully. And save the cheat sheet below.
Today I’m showing you How to style your old new little black dress to make it look fashionable for 2019.
HOW TO UPDATE SIMPLE LITTLE BLACK DRESS TO MAKE IT LOOK FASHIONABLE FOR 2019
So how to update your old new little black dress to make it look new? Different from all the other little black dresses in your closet? To make it look special for romantic Valentine’s dinner date your boyfriend just invited you to?
Moreover, how to style your favourite LBD to make it look fashionable for 2019? The answer is simple and feathery.
You should style your LBD with one of this season’s most fashionable party shoes and furthermore one of 2019 IT accessories I wrote about over here. And no, it’s not the baseball cap.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
And here it is, the fashion cheat sheet that will help you update your old new little black dress and make it look like it’s actually new. You can save, pin or print this collage. Just don’t steal it and link it to your site.
The fashion cheat sheet is shoppable too. So you can shop everything you see by clicking inside the pink brackets. A link will take you to the store where I found it. Ps. You can find all these links plus more in the copy below as well.
Starting with the accessory that will turn your old new LBD into one of the most fashionable 2019 little black dresses. Yes, feather boa is that IT accessory I mentioned earlier.
A feather boa or feather scarf is the accessory you need to wear with your LBD in 2019. That is if you want your little black dress to look fashionable and different from all the other little black dresses.
I’m wearing Nana Firenze feather boa (last time seen here) that I got a while ago from Luisaviaroma. Unfortunately, it’s not on sale anymore since everyone wants feathers now and, as expected, sold out quickly.
Nevertheless, you can buy something similar over here. It’s white feather bolero and looks like my feather boa.
Also, check the widget below to see more feather scarves and feather boas.
MALONE SOULIERS MULES
On we go with one of the most fashionable 2019 party shoes. Yes, mules are still in fashion for 2019. But wait, not just any mules. Only stunning, breathtaking high heel mules like these.
Click here to shop Malone Soulier mules. And go here to see how to style these stunning date shoes with a black pantsuit. For a date or even for work. And no, these mules are not just for sitting. You could walk around wearing them all day long without any discomfort or pain.
LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Finally the little black dress. I know, I could easily skip this part since you already have a little black dress to wear for Valentine’s date. But just in case your LBD tears or you find out you can’t zip it anymore after eating all those Valentine’s day chocolates.
BAG AND MAKEUP
Almost forgot to mention the bag. I’m wearing my old black top handle bag. Even though admittedly a classic or Chanel boy bag (shop here) would be a better choice for Valentine’s dinner date. You know, it would make this date outfit even more sophisticated and special.
Chanel or not, just make sure you don’t go overboard with the bag and makeup when styling your LBD with feathers and stunning metallic mules. Keep everything else simple. Especially the makeup.
Whatsoever, here is the makeup I’m wearing. Giorgio Armani power fabric (shop here), Chanel mascara (buy here), Dior lip glow (buy here). Furthermore, I’m wearing Bobbi Brown highlighter (buy here), Dior Rosy blush (get here), Dior eyebrow pencil (this one here), and Burberry eyeshadows (shop here). Ps. I mixed Burberry eyeshadows with Bobbi Brown highlighter. Oh, I almost forgot, I’m wearing Marc Jacob metallic eyeliner (shop here) as well. And this perfume that you can buy over here.
Mentioning the perfume, have you read the list of the perfumes you can buy online without giving them a try first, I recently published. If you missed it, click here to read it later.
