Must-Have Accessories For A Night Out
Every woman should have a little black dress that's perfect for multiple occasions -- from office meetings to cocktail parties and everything in between. To take your LBD from day to night, you just need to add a little glamor and glitz with the right accessories.
Start with jewelry, particularly a necklace. A pearl necklace is classic, sophisticated and understated. For some real glam, add a statement necklace in a bold color.
Jewelry doesn't have to be expensive to be beautiful. Fashion or costume jewelry is affordable and impressive. Look for a necklace with faux stones in bright colors such as turquoise or coral, which offer a nice contrast to your LBD.
No evening outfit is complete without the right handbag. Don't go too small: A bag that can't hold more than a lipstick is useless. Your evening clutch should be big enough to carry a small wallet, your compact and a few other essentials. A metallic bag -- or a black bag embellished with crystals or beads -- is a fabulous choice for evening.
Traditional black pumps are well-suited for the office, but when you head out on the town, turn up the heat with sexy footwear. Try sandals with delicate straps and sky-high heels or peeptoe slingbacks. Sultry over-the-knee boots will get you noticed as well.
Add some glitz to your hair with beaded or crystal-encrusted headbands, combs and barrettes. In cool weather, a headwrap sizzles while keeping you warm.
Go Old-Hollywood glam with a pair of elbow-length evening gloves. If you aren't comfortable wearing gloves, though, don't. You have to be confident and comfortable in your gloves to wear them with elegance and style.
