Style Tip: Updating the LBD

The classic, little black dress. Your go-to piece for both work and play. You wear it so much you wonder if people are starting to think it's sewn on. I can hear it screaming, "Please! Update me! Give me some fashion valium so I can wake up!" Whether your LBD has been going strong for years or you have yet to purchase one (try this affordble option from JCPenney), it takes minimal effort to add a little spice to this blank canvas.

Update for Fall 09: Toughen up

For a great night out look (or if you work in a creative environment), start with your trusty LBD. Then add a denim jacket, ankle booties, and some layered metallic bangles. If your LBD has some feminine detailing, like the ruffles on the Banana Republic dress pictured , even better. Juxtaposing the masculine and the feminine is oh so chic. If you can't get enough of the hardware, add a chain strap handbag. If you would prefer not to set off any metal detectors, just grab a simple clutch in a solid color.
