The Little Black Dress for Homecoming
With homecoming arriving in a few short months, operation: find the perfect homecoming dress 2017 is in full force. We all have those shopping days when we look at hundreds of homecoming dresses, but still feel confused about what to choose – and that’s where the classic little black dress (LBD) comes into play. If you’re looking for a timeless and fun look, the little black dress might be the perfect choice for you this homecoming!
A little black dress never goes out of style and makes for a sophisticated and sexy fashion statement. You just can’t go wrong with a black dress in one our top designers’ homecoming styles. Worried that a simple black dress might be boring? Never! One of 2017’s top fashion trends is to accessorize, accessorize, accessorize. Say hello to the year of statement accessories. What better way to accessorize than by having full creative liberty with a classic little black dress?
Statement earrings are the perfect way to add a splash of dimension to your little black homecoming dress. Whether it be a bold pop of color, tassel drops, beads, fringes or metal shapes, more is more and you’ll certainly take your little black homecoming dress to the next level with a knockout pair of earrings!
While a pair of statement earrings might be what your dress needs, there are certain dress necklines that are better suited for a statement necklace. With so many dress necklines, finding the perfect statement necklace can be a daunting task. Use a neckline cheat sheet to help understand what necklace types pair well with your dress’ neckline.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with adding both a pair of earrings and necklace to your homecoming look. However, we do suggest making either your necklace or earrings the statement piece, and allowing the opposite accessory to take the backseat. What do we mean by this? Let’s say you choose a statement, bright-colored necklace. Allow the necklace to stand out by choosing a subtler earring. Perhaps a simple silver, gold, rose gold or diamond earring is a more suitable choice to avoid the two jewelry pieces from fighting for attention.
Whether you choose a pair of statement earrings or a statement necklace, adding a statement shoe is one of the easiest ways to add something special to your little black homecoming dress. We’ve put together a guide on how to find the perfect pair of shoes for your dress style in our Dress & Party blog. Color, style and height all usually play a factor in finding the perfect pair of shoes for your dress. Great news though! With a little black dress, we’ll let you in on a little secret…you really can’t go wrong and the choice is up to you!
