How to Accessorize a LBD for Summer #FashionFriday

A little black dress, or LBD for short. Every lady has one. Or she should. But in the summertime, black can feel a bit heavy.

I’ve had a reader request for a post on how to accessorize a little black dress for summer, and since summer is half over, I figured I better get on it!

Speaking of summer being half over, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts TODAY!!!! It’s time to stock up for fall. Check out my post with all my top picks!

Okay, now that we have THAT out of the way.

Accessorizing a black dress for summer is fun and easier than you might think.

You can always jazz up a LBD with brights — pinks, red, turquoise or even white.

Or dress it up with metallics for a sophisticated look — just be sure to go with very summery shoes and jewelry that isn’t too heavy.

And pastels are always a good idea for summertime.

I can’t get product links for everything above, but I did manage to grab some for this look: mint wristlet // pink aviators // Fleurette Statement Necklace // Adelina Cuff // gold flat sandals

    Wow! This might be my favorite fashion post you’ve done. I sometimes feel fashion-challenged but have learned that dresses, black and otherwise, are an easy way to look better while still being comfortable. Thanks for showing all the different ways to accessorize. You’ve given some solid inspiration to this mama. :)

    Great post and so many cute LBDs. I own several already. Love the way you styled them with the colorful accessories which pop!

    Pleasure linking up my Little Pink Dress today. Hahaha.

    Have a Great Weekend, relaxing at your new gorgeous family room, Jo-Lynne!
