I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Vanity Fair Lingerie. I received product samples to facilitate my review and compensation to thank me for my participation.
This time of year is always so busy. Whether you are headed to a big event or an intimate get-together with friends you definitely want to have a little black dress in your arsenal. My favorite little black dress was actually the most plain, most boring one I found on the rack. I personally like that because, for one, it allows me to play up my makeup however I want and, for two, I have a few things I do to create and customized to whatever look I am going for.
Little Black Dress | SHOES
First, I pair it with some pretty high heels. I have had these ones for years and I love them because of the open toe detail—hello, I have to show off my polish color of choice—and the shiny leather. You can do whatever show you want, just know that the details are what is important and customize them according to what you like and the overall look you are going for.
Little Black Dress | HANDBAG
If you want to carry nothing that is fine, but I find that carrying a pretty sparkly clutch ads so much fun to a classic black outfit. That and I want to actually carry around a powder, lipstick, bobby pins and a hair tie. Also a little cash and your ID is something you may want to bring along, so I personally think a clutch is a must have.
Little Black Dress |JEWELRY
I obviously never take off my engagement ring, wedding ring, and anniversary ring but I like to mix metals as well. My rings are all white gold but my personal favorite earrings right now are gold with cream enamel details and my favorite bracelet is rose gold with a positive quote on it. I love putting them altogether, but I have been mixing metals since before it was cool. A lot of people still don’t like the look but you do you, boo.
Little Black Dress | UNDERGARMENTS
The most important part to really creating the silhouette you want out of your little black dress lies within your choice of undergarments. A woman’s lingerie is the foundation of her outfit, so it’s important to wear a bra that fits well in order to best highlight your body’s shape. A well-fitting bra helps provide a smooth silhouette, giving support exactly where you need it.
The undergarments we choose act as the very foundation of looking – and feeling – our best. The designers at Vanity Fair brands are always scouting emerging trends and styles to help inspire confidence and support from the inside out. The Vanity Fair Beautiful Benefits Elegance Bra features beautiful and supportive details, like contour cups with underwire support and touches of floral lace. The leotard back prevents straps from slipping, and stays in place for a smooth look under clothes, which is exactly what we want with something as elegant as a little black dress.
I am so pleased with the Vanity Fair Beautiful Benefits Elegance Full Figure bra from Vanity Fair. It is so lightweight but still does exactly what it is supposed to do. It is comfortable and stays in place. I haven’t had a strap slide out of place not even once, so I consider it a total win!
