TGIF friends!

We've made it to the end of the week and today I'm sharing an outfit that I believe would be a great option for anyBODY this weekend, especially if you're planning a date night or girls' night out! 

I simply love a little black dress (LBD) especially in a jersey or cotton material because they tend to be a bit more versatile and can easily be dressed up or down, though lace versions can do the same.

However, I feel that those that are rather simple are the most versatile because you can get away with wearing them to various occasions with the same people and there's nothing notable about about them, that would otherwise make it obvious that you're wearing the same dress again. I also think this would be the most cost effective way to go about adding this essential into your wardrobe, assuring that you'd get the most wear and bang for your buck. If you're able to, I'd suggest you eventually add a more formal style that you can switch between, depending on the occasion. I have a complete guide on selecting the most flattering formal LBDs for your body shape, which you can check out here, for some tips on what to look for to ensure a flattering look and fit. 

One way I love to style my casual LBDs is with a leather jacket and depending on my mood, I'll switch up the color and fit. If I want to look more chic, I'll opt for a more tapered or minimal style in black. If I'm feeling extra excited about the occasion, I'll add a pop of color and for fall, I'm loving mustard yellow! I think the contrast of the yellow against the black is gorgeous and I love the idea of wearing it with leopard pumps, but today I went for a camo ankle boot that has some of the colors you'd find in a classic leopard print, which gives off the same effect.

What's perfect is that you'd be able to create a very similar vibe with a bomber jacket and pair of sneakers, too; both add edgy elements to the blank canvas of the dress. 

What's one way YOU love styling your LBD for a more casual look? Thanks so much for stopping by, my gorgeous friends, and I hope you have the most amazing weekend ahead!
