It could be any cute Little Black Dress that strikes your fancy.
Then dress it up just with breathtaking earrings.
That's all you need, you know, really.
SHE did, and breathtaking they were!
In case "they" insist they can lend these huge emeralds only to Red Carpet celebrities and you don't quite qualify yet, not to worry, there is a more manageable version.
You can opt for a more discreet approach, but you would be wrong.
Even if you prefer to stay neutral at least go for BIG.
Sophia Bush also gets it right. Low key but generous.
A little black dress needs Oomph! a lot of Oomph. Trust me.
Color, bold color, will be needed to balance the severity of the black.
Go for broke; get really colorful!
Oscar de la Renta
All right, if you must be a bit shy, just this once, as long as you choose color.
Marie Helene de Taillac
Now, THIS is going creative... and fearless.
And if you are in an Indian mood, this fit-for-a-Maharani pair will certainly do.
Have fun with that LBD.
