STUDIO CITY (CBSLA.com) — Ashley Fultz, a style expert from Fred Segal in Santa Monica, appeared on KCAL9 News on Sunday morning with simple tips on how to transform that “little black dress” for any occasion.
Look 1: Daytime, Casual
Fultz recommends pairing the dress with a great leather jacket for a daytime, casual look. For the jewelry, she incorporated a mix of metals in delicate styles from Nina Segal. Fultz says hats are really making a comeback as an everyday wardrobe staple this season. She also recommended a crossbody bag, like this Rebecca Minkoff purse from Nina Segal, to complete the look.
Look 2: Date Night
For a night out with your man, Fultz recommends a feminine twist with an embellished belt and colorful heels! She also recommended pairing the dress with sparkly heels. Invest in a great structured blazer! Fultz says it instantly dresses up your look, and can be re-purposed after your date night for a day at the office or brunch with the gals.
Look 3: New Year’s Eve
Fultz says New Year’s Eve is the ultimate occasion to glam up your little black dress. She went for an edgier version of a “Classic Hollywood” look with accessories from Nina Segal & Madison – the fur scarf doubles as a sophisticated wrap, the clutch adds a festive sparkle, and the lace gloves are pure Audrey Hepburn. She also recommends the peep toe booties from Madison as a chic, modern alternative to pumps. Finally, she said a clever up-do can be a great accessory too!
