The little black dress is a real fashion classic. Wearing one, you will always look chic and elegant. So it is no wonder that Coco Chanel’s favourite dress is a real must-have. But isn’t it a bit sad that we most of the time wear this classy dress only on special occasions? So in this blogpost, I am going to show you how to style the little black dress for everyday life in spring and summer.

Tip 1: Choose a Dress with Lace or other Details

To make sure your dress looks not overdressed in everyday life, make sure to choose one made of a not too delicate fabric. I like lace, by the way. You will find wonderful little black retro dresses at TopVintage*, for example.

Tip 2: Team your Dress with a cool Handbag

Cool handbags are a great way to make sure your outfit looks not too formal. I recommend basket bags or bags in fancy candy colours, by the way.

Tip 3: Wear Sandals, Wedges or Peeptoes with your LBD

Style your little black dress with shoes like sandas, wedges or peeptoes. These look a bit cooler and more casual than formal high heels.

Tip 4: Wear stylish Accessories

Tip 5: Wear a colourful Summer Makeup

Wear your black summer dress with a light, colourful makeup. I usually only wear a CC cream, a subtle eye makeup, a little bit of blush and a bright lipstick during the warm season. My favourite lipstick colours for summer are a coral-red or bright pink.
