How to Wear a Little Black Dress

Where are you going in your LBD? To a New Year’s Eve party.

Why do you love this LBD? Once November hits, I start getting excited about holiday dresses, especially of the New Year’s Eve variety. In my perfect world, all New Year’s Eve soirees would look like Gatsby’s parties, so I chose a fun dress with texture and movement; something you can twirl in.

How did you accessorize your look? I wanted to build on the 1920’s vibe, so I went for opulence in the jewelry and the art deco clutch, and added pops of color (like the teal T-strap heel) for a more modern take on the flapper look.

What type of hair and makeup complete this look? For makeup, I thought to myself, “What would Clara Bow do?” For hair, I picked the head wrap because it’s an easy nod to the time period whether you decide to faux bob your hair or not.
