Why we love it

There's nothing more chic (and more slimming) than an all-black ensemble. Olivia looks like a true lady with this dramatic LBD, jacket and classic pumps. This is one look that will never go out of style!

How to style

The best part about this look? It totally performs double duty. If you want to make your favorite LBD work-appropriate, add layers to it like Olivia did here. Meaning: Throw on a little jacket for the office, and add a sleek belt. Heading for drinks with the girls after a long day? Simply remove the jacket and belt, and you're ready for a night out!

What to remember

Showing a little skin is a must. If you're going for the all-black look, try showing a little skin to break up the monochromatic color. You can either wear a skirt to show some leg like Olivia did, or wear something sleeveless to show your arms. If you are in complete black from head to toe, you'll start looking like a scary witch!
