As your dress is black, you can even experiment with different colours to breathe a little bit of fresh air into a timeless outfit,

Whether you choose to wear tights or not, this is definitely the time of year to start wear boots. After all, nothing is worse than having cold feet!

Of all the accessories that will inject colour into your ensemble though, scarves are the best. Animal prints, Moroccan geometrical styles, furs, solid pigments, Indian pashminas and silky neck pieces are just some of the options you can get your hands on when it comes to pairing a scarf with your LBD this winter. You can also choose how you want to wear the scarf as well to add even more personality to your outfit.
