There's nothing in your wardrobe that can get classier than the Little Black Dress. Everything that has ever been said about the virtue and versatility of this trusty wardrobe staple is true. You can indeed never be overdressed or underdressed in it, and can truly style it in almost anyway you feel. Don’t believe us? We give you some of our fave celebs who added a twist to the LBD. Take inspiration from them to help you sparkle this party season.
Wearing her hair half up and half down, Alia rocked a very party-ready look in a fitted LBD, which she cinched with a belt at the waist. A lot of people would be on the edge about a belt that wide, but she worked it with effortless ease. We love how she used those shoes to brighten up the look along with some dewy makeup and a pretty pink pout.
The leggy Lisa Haydon went super risqué and owned the look with complete charm and confidence. She let the sheer effect do all the talking by going minimal with the rest of her look with a basic ponytail and natural makeup. We’re loving the unconventional theme of her style, it’s a perfect choice to help stand out in a crowd this party season. You can always put in a lining or wear a fitted crop top under instead of baring your lingerie.
Sometimes, simple and understated can be the most stylish, just like Karisma Kapoor’s LBD style. She paired her pleated black dress with a classic ponytail, a black clutch and printed pumps for a stunning fashion quotient minus all the frills. Her fuss-free style is so easy to embody and will see you through any dinner or party this season.

Nargis added a super interesting spin to her style by wearing a stunning gold embellished blouse over her dress for a half-embellished and half-ruffled ensemble. We love the creativity behind the idea, it’s great for adding that extra something to your usual style. Try it the next time you want to add a personal twist to your simple black dress and really turn heads.

Kangana flaunted a look that can work in the boardroom as well as the VIP room of a hot club. With a low ponytail, belt and cute Mary Janes, she wore the structured dress well, exuding sophisticated elegance. We love how she didn’t overdo it and kept the makeup au naturel.
Trust DPad to take it up a notch in a faux leather dress with a thigh slit. Big hair and deep oxblood lips seriously added to her bombshell factor. The dark lips and leather are perfect for winter; it’s a look you may want to consider to grab attention this season.
