When it comes to cocktail parties, the LBD is always a safe choice, but at times it can end up looking boring and too plain. See here how you can make your dress look party ready with just a few tweaks to your outfit. Metallic tipped pumps- They are very much in style right now, and they spice up a dress like no other. Sleek belts- The quickest way to make a black dress stand out? A belt! Make sure to chose yours so that it flatters your figure and makes your waist look smaller. My favorite are a modern metallic design like Leighton Meester's. Colorful bracelets- A little color can go a long way. Throw on a few chunky bright bracelets on one wrist, and keep the other one clean for a little balance. White clutch- There is nothing better or more elegant than the black and white combo. Choose a clean crisp white clutch to make it the best accessory for an LBD.
