How to Style: Casual LBD 3 Ways

For this month, I wanted to do a how to style with a little black dress, LBD for short that can easily be transitioned from summer to fall. Now that it’s August, fall is quickly approaching and with all the back to school sales, now is a great time to start preparing. I chose this bodycon midi dress from Forever 21 from a few years ago because it’s a great piece, good quality, and super versatile. Let me know how you would style this dress in the comments!

Outfit #1

To start, I just threw this cute oversize jacket from Free People on top and added some yellow sandals. Very easy, and simple. The key to this outfit is that if it gets chilly, you add the jacket and if it’s a little warmer then you can take the jacket off. It’s probably the easiest outfit in the world but still makes you look put together.

Outfit #2

For this second one, I had a similar idea to the first in that adding a layer you can remove is a good idea, so that’s what I did! I took this striped button down shirt from American Eagle and just tied it up in the front. Adding some sneakers makes it really easy and casual also. This top happens to be short sleeve, but if it were long sleeve, you could even tie the shirt around your waist and get a little more of a grungey look too!

Outfit #3

Similar to outfit #2, I went with a tie detail, but this time I used a graphic t-shirt to get the look. This look is super popular these days so you’ll be right on trend, yet still comfortable. Adding sneakers keeps it casual, but you can always switch them out for sandals or wedges!
