If your little black dress is the MVP of your wardrobe, why bench it for an entire season? If you think LBDs don't quite cover your winter wardrobe needs, read on—we've styled three looks that you can wear outdoors without fearing hypothermia. Promise, our easy (but still chic!) layering tricks will keep your wardrobe favorites in heavy rotation all season long. The versatility you loved about your LBD in spring and summer is still alive and well, and so ready to take you out on a power dinner, to a party, or, of course, a sexy date. Here's how to make sure your little black dress has your back–always.
Layering up a strapless LBD adds instant sophistication. This look works well if you're having a desk-to-drinks-to-power-dinner sort of marathon day. Impress a client and snag some boss brownie points, all while giving one of your prized LBDs a little unexpected action.

The words "glam" and "layering" don't often appear in the same sentence (or outfit!), but we're challenging that. If you're looking to glam up a simple LBD for a special night, don't forget that everything counts. Your leg-wear and shoes offer just as much opportunity to sparkle as your accessories–just keep your glitz in moderation and the look will stay chic.
You've always trusted your LBDs on date night, but once the temperature hits, well... winter, they might start to betray you. Fortify them with a few winter-worthy extras, and you'll be flirt-ready once again. A bright blazer is one of our favorite ways to keep a layered LBD outfit from looking too one-note.
