Anyone else seem to realise how few cocktail dresses you have the night before a special event?! Now that fall is in full swing, we’re taking a step back from summer colour and once again finding ourselves all about the little black dress (LBD). To make sure our collection is up-to-date and ready to go this season, we’re looking to Suzy Shier for some affordable, and decidedly not-boring, options. From full-blown glam to work-appropriate, there’s an LBD for every fall event.
LBD 1: chic stripes
Wear it to: a fall wedding
Lucky enough to be attending a fall wedding this year? Black-and-white is a always a chic choice, and you can’t go wrong with elegant stripes. When it comes to accessories, obviously you need a pair of statement earrings to complete the look. Try rocking a pair of bold globe earrings for a bit of added drama, and take the geometric effect even further by adding a square bangle. Get ready to Snap the night away!
LBD 2: collared mod
Wear it to: a work event
Dressing for work can be at best, tricky and at worst, boring. Cue this coworker-appropriate collared LBD that is cute and professional. The contrast collar and sleeve piping has a ‘60s mod vibe that can be played up with a low heel. This pair has floral beading on the toe for added interest, and dainty earrings in a similar style tie the whole outfit together. A blocky suitcase bag has major personality that fits right in with this slightly quirky look.
LBD 3: lace off-the-shoulder
Wear it to: a night out
Off-the-shoulder is having a MAJOR moment, and this lace number is officially our LBD dream come true. This dress feels a little more dramatic than the other options here, and we love the bodycon fit. It’s just begging to be worn on a dance floor – and we have a feeling you may turn some heads. Go full glam by adding a pair of high strappy heels and a long chain bag.
Want more accessory inspo to dress up your favourite LBD? Here’s some celeb-worthy jewellery to incorporate into your fall wardrobe.
