With Christmas just around the corner and party season practically upon us, it's time to get geared up for the most glamorous time of the year.

While this season is all about luxe velvet and unicorn sequins, it's also prime time to pull that little black dress out of the wardrobe and get your money's worth.

And as extravagant as this season's collection of party dresses may be, the accessories are to die for.

A great accessory has the power to transform any outfit, and we're proving this by spicing up our fave LBD with some of this season's most fabulous adornments.

For this style challenge, SHEmazing! opted to hit River Island – it's affordable and there are loads of festive-appropriate steals there at the moment.

If you invest in one accessory this season, make it a faux-fur tippet. Draped over one shoulder, it adds an instant air of luxury to any festive frock. Team with a chain-strap handbag to channel that classic Gatsby glamour. Who said all-black was boring?

Accessorise your LBD with a pom-pom choker and a glitter-encrusted box-bag, and voilá; a fresh, cute and quirky take on a classic look.

Happy outfit-planning, ladies!




If there is one wardrobe essential all women MUST have, it is definitely a little black dress. You will have it forever, and love it forever. Here are five reasons why you must invest in a LBD.

1. They are timeless
Black is always in fashion and loved by everyone. It will always be in your wardrobe and worn on a regular basis.

2. They go with every colour
You don't need to worry about over wearing it because you can change it up every time. Wear statement silver jewellery this weekend, and gold the next. Same dress, completely new outfit. 

3. They are safe and flattering
Black is perfect for flattering all body shapes and you don't need to stress about spilling your glass of red wine on it because it won't stain. Tan is also not a problem. 

4. You can wear it for different occasions
Black is one of those colours that can be dolled up to look night out ready, but also toned down for office style. You can do so much with a black dress, it all depends on how you choose to style it. Casual or dressy, without the hassle.

5. It can always be your emergency dress
Major occasion coming up but no nice dresses catching your eye? Go and grab that LBD and save yourself a moment of panic.



Trends come and go, but certain pieces NEVER go out of fashion and these are the things you should spend the most money on.

These pieces will see you through years and hundreds of wears – IF you buy quality.

A Little Black Dress
LBDs have been and always will be the ultimate fashion statement. Whether you like it short and skin-tight or knee-length with some flair, it’s always worth spending money on an LBD you love.

A pencil skirt
Pencil skirts are not just for workwear – you can also dress them up for a night out with the girls, a hot date or that all-important interview you need to look your fiercest for.

A hold-all handbag
We need at least one massive handbag. One that fits our laptop, our gymgear and whatever else we carry in there (no, seriously why is it so heavy?!) Because of this, it’s better to spend money on a high end hold-all bag that won’t snap when the going gets tough.

A leather jacket
Now a real, high quality leather jacket is going to set you back. However, has there ever been a moment in time when wearing a leather jacket wasn’t the epitome of cool? From the T-Birds to Alexa Chung, the leather jacket has a place in every wardrobe.

A watch
Big, bold watches are really in right now and we can’t see that changing for a while. From Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs to Daniel Wellington, your timepiece will be timeless!
