The best clothes are the ones you can wear over and over again and make them look cute no matter what the occasion. It also doesn’t hurt if that staple is a cheap one. Buying trendy items is fun and there’s nothing wrong with it… but classic clothes that you can mix and match are definitely must-haves. The biggest must-have of all? A little black dress, of course!
A casual black dress is so easy to work with and can be worn pretty much everywhere – trust me, I’ve done it. So when I fell in love with this Claudia Jersey Cap Sleeve Skater Dress from Boohoo.com (it’s only $20, guys. $20!), I knew I needed to show it off. Want to buy this for yourself? I’ve done the work for you and put together five ways to wear this black dress. Check it out, and click on the picture if you want to see more info on the items:
For A Holiday Party:
Get in the holiday spirit by pairing your dress with a bright red blazer and fun dotted tights. The flats will keep you comfy and the fun Christmas-y add on’s like a mini candy cane necklace and China Glaze holiday nail polish will make you stand out.
A dress can get totally casual when you pair it with fun patterned tights and flat ankle boots. The white sweater will keep you warm and the panda hat is just a really cute touch. Also? That peacoat is awesome.
For A Date Night:
You can wear this outfit whether you’re going on a date with your crush, long-term BF or just having a girl’s night. Wear a sweater to keep you warm, but cinch it with a thin belt to make it more flattering. Add a pop of color with bright blue flats and channel your inner Taylor Swift with a swipe of red lipstick.
For New Years Eve:
New Years Eve is the perfect time to bust out the sparkles, and I love a good black and gold combo. The blazer is super fun and the heart earrings and bow clutch keep things cute. If you’re going to a fancy NYE party, wear the heels… if it’s more casual, gold flats will work. Or bring the gold flats along in case the heels start to hurt!
For Looking Professional:
Whether you have a job interview, college interview or you just want to look good for a class presentation you’re giving, there’s going to be some point where you need to look professional. Keep things interesting with a blazer in a bright color. Flats will keep your look classy without looking too old and pale pink nail polish is a nice touch.
