Get the most out of that LBD sitting in your closet and dress it up or down with shoes.  Here are our favorite styles for that capsule black dress.


1.  The fancy heel

The taller the heel, the fancier your outfit will be.  We like the State of Luxe heel by 42 gold for an effortless look and the clear Home Before Midnight heel for a fun yet formal spin.

2.  The simple wedge

With a shallow wedge heel and thin straps, this style will dress down your LBD but still keep the classic look.  We like the Kim & Cork Take New York wedge in black to tie the look together.  To make the look even more casual, throw on a denim jacket.

3. The rule breaker ankle boot

Who says you have to only wear heels with dresses?  Pair your LBD with a block heel ankle boot to dress it down and show off your fun style, like with the Croc Block ankle boot by Chinese Laundry.

4. The Summer heel

Brighten up your little black dress with a strappy white heel like the French Manicure heel by Chinese Laundry.

5.  Knee High Boots

Wear your LBD in colder months with tall boots to make your dress work for you year round. We like adding a warm toned boot to balance out the black dress like the Mrs Know It Tall boot by Chinese Laundry.

Every closet needs not only a little black dress, but also a collection of shoes to go with it.  No matter how you style your LBD, your confidence is sure to shine through.
