Dramatic Makeup
A classic black dress is ideal for when you want to explore different makeup options. Instead of going with attention grabbing accessories, you can make a statement with your makeup. Smokey shadow in colours like green or purple would work beautifully with your dress. Winged eyeliner would look great if you wish to keep it simple. One thing that should go hand in hand with an LBD is a dramatic pout with scarlet lips or a flash of coral or pink. Lighter shades of pink and peach would also be a good choice if you don’t want to go too bold.

Belt Up
Belting your outfit is cool option to wear it differently. Add some colour to your look by cinching your waist with a bright belt. It can be skinny or thick. You can even use a glitter belt to incorporate a fun dash of sparkle to your style.
