How to Upcycle Your LBD

by Goddiva Account 10 May 2023

The little black dress, or LBD for short, is a timeless classic that every woman should have in her wardrobe. It's a versatile piece that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. However, if you're tired of wearing the same old black dress, why not upcycle it and give it a new lease of life?

Upcycling is a great way to breathe new life into old clothes and accessories, and it's also good for the environment. By repurposing items, you already own, you're reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

One way to upcycle your LBD is by adding bright and bold coloured accessories. A pop of colour can instantly transform your black dress and make it look fresh and exciting. For example, you could add a bright red statement necklace or a pair of turquoise earrings to your outfit. Alternatively, you could go for a more subtle approach and add a colourful scarf or belt to your dress.

When it comes to shoes and bags, the possibilities are endless. You could go for a bold colour like hot pink or electric blue, or you could choose a print like leopard or floral. Just make sure the colours and patterns you choose complement your black dress and don't clash with it.

Jewellery is another way to upcycle your LBD and make it look brand new. You could add a chunky bracelet or a stack of bangles to your wrist, or you could wear a pair of statement earrings that really stand out. If you're not sure what type of jewellery to wear, try experimenting with different styles and see what works best for you.

Upcycling your LBD is also a great way to make it suitable for different occasions and seasons. For example, if you're going to a summer wedding, you could add a pair of strappy sandals and a clutch bag to your black dress. Alternatively, if you're attending a winter party, you could add a pair of knee-high boots and a cosy scarf to keep warm.

By upcycling your LBD, you can also create a range of different looks without having to buy new clothes. For example, you could wear your black dress with a denim jacket and sneakers for a casual daytime look, or you could dress it up with heels and a clutch bag for a night out.

So why not dig out your old LBD and see what creative ideas you can come up with to upcycle it? Not only will you be doing your bit for the environment, but you'll also have a unique and stylish outfit that's all your own.
