How to Make a Fancy Black Dress Suitable for a Week Night

I have so many fancy dresses hanging in my closet and not enough “dazzling dress” events to attend. Sometimes I manipulate a piece to make it work for me, and not the other way around! While some may still think that sequins for holiday parties and that’s it, I vehemently disagree.¬† I like to think that, “If it sparkles, it’ll make you smile” so why not make sequins a regular part of your wardrobe? Dress them down with these three simple style tips:

1. Wear a Ponytail

Ponytails are great for job interviews, working out, and…dressing down a fancy dress. Nothing says “I’m so chill” more than a ponytail. On one hand it shows everyone that you’re confident enough to go a day without styling your hair down and on the other it says that you can rock anything because you’ve got gorgeous features.

2. Add a Touch of boho

Larger than life silver hoop earrings are the perfect glamorous boho element to add to an evening look. They show that you’re not afraid to have fun, in fact, you’re probably the life of the party.

3. Add Bright Color

Adding bright color accessories to a little black dress makes its seem less “dressy” and more “stylish.” Being bold is different than being fancy. Hot pink or electric blue will turn heads, drawing attention to your outfit as a whole without singling out your oh-so-divine sparkly dress.

Here are a few chic pieces to inspire your new evening wardrobe for Spring:

How to Get the Perfect Date Night Look

Date nights are the best night of the week. They’re the perfect excuse to pull out your new fall attire, gather up your fave accessories, and enjoy a night of looking ultra-chic.

My go-to style tip: combine casual with fancy for a wildly fantastic ensemble.

Here I combined my new fave Tobi skirt, with a fall suede crop top with fancy sneakers, a trendy leather cap from Go Jane and that sexy pout. I wore Clinique pink lipstick that is just the perfect combination of smooth matte and creamy.

With my hair blowing in the wind, I had to keep it nicely tucked behind my ears. I love having long hair, but those curls can get unruly in the wind!

Tobi

The best thing about warm weather in the fall is wearing those crop tops with an open back. I’ll take advantage of summer attire for as long as possible. This navy and white skirt from Tobi matched perfectly with my Brandy Melville crop top. Unfortunately, they aren’t still selling this exact crop top, but here is a very similar one!

Pink Sweater

Ever wonder which pair of shoes to wear? As a woman who owns almost a hundred pairs of shoes, deciding which ones to wear is what takes up all my time getting ready.

This fall I’m obsessed with girly sweaters. This soft, light pink sweater from Tobi is so comfy, making it perfect for a stay-in date night or a date night on the town. There’s plenty of time to wear dark colors in the winter. While the sun is still shining and the weather is warm, I like to stick with light, feminine colors.

My Chanel sunglasses are the perfect accessory to make any casual look, a tad more sophisticated! No look is complete without the perfect bag. For day time dates with my man I like to wear a big purse to carry anything and everything I might need.

Tobi Sweaters

Before heading out to a romantic dinner spot, I switch the big bag for an evening clutch. This black suede Jimmy Choo clutch is my favorite new accessory! It looks great with anything! I can dress it down with this ultra-chic orchid Tobi sweater, or I can dress it up with a little black dress on the weekends.

The jeans are from Armani Exchange. They look great with bold sweaters. When wearing a sweater that has a color that pops, I like to combine it with neutral accessories: brown Chanel sunglasses, grey skinny jeans, a black bag, and black high heels!

Once you’ve bought the perfect look, all you need is a couple savory tapas and that pink martini to really make the night exciting!
