Here at Ariana, we love the classic little black dress. However, its popularity for the Christmas party season, often sees women craving a break from tradition in favour of something a little more unexpected. So, if you’re in need of some style inspiration, here we share how to give your LBD a twist, as well as alternative looks to help you wow this season.
Just add colour
While the winter months tend to veer towards the darker side of the colour spectrum, we say mix and match it. The great thing about black is that the neutral hue works in perfect harmony with a wide range of colours. While red is definitely a classic choice for the festive season, its partnership with black will up the ante. Alternatively, stand out in cobalt blue and black for a look that’s guaranteed to turn heads.
It definitely wouldn’t be Christmas without some sparkle, so ensure your little black dress has some! Whether you add a statement necklace, or choose a dress with embellishment, this is the time of year when there’s no such thing as too much sparkle.
Opt for a print
If head-to-toe black just doesn’t cut it for you, a print is the perfect way to take the classic hue to the next level. At Ariana Clothing, we firmly believe in clothing which carefully flatters the figure. Our purposely positioned prints combined with strategically placed panels will ensure you both look and feel amazing this season. Opt to monochrome it for the chicest colour combination this season. Our black and white leopard print dress is the perfect way to make a subtle statement.
Skip black altogether
There’s no hard and fast rule that says you HAVE to wear black this season. In fact, we say, if you love colour, embrace it. Whether it’s one block of colour, or a colourful print set against a black backdrop, stay stylish while still remaining festive this season.
Focus on texture
To give your little black dress a twist, focus on texture. The winter months boast a luxurious array of fabrics such as lace, faux fur and velvet, which are fitting for the season. Choose a LBD with an interesting texture to be the belle of the (Christmas) ball.
Add a statement jacket
There’s no denying that nights out during winter call for layers, which can often deter from your carefully selected dress. However, we’ve met the demand for stylish outerwear, by offering a collection that will perfectly complement your look. From chic cardigans trimmed with faux fur, to pretty pea coats, stay warm while always remaining stylish this winter.
Pair a LBT (little black top) with a skirt
A little black top paired with a statement skirt is the perfect way to dress for the party season. A fuss-free method to take your look from office to bar stool, switch the pumps for heels, amp it up with some jewellery and you’re all set for a festive frenzy.
So this festive season, why not dare to be a little different and add a twist to your little black dress? Or, switch to an alternative look altogether to effortlessly stand out from the crowd.
