Black Magic - Turn Heads In These All Black Party Looks

by Rosie McKay

Nothing says sexy and stylish like a LBD or a chic all-black outfit. Textures, interesting details and the right accessories are all key...

When it comes to the party season, I just can't go past all black. Easy to wear and and classic yet stylish and sexy, I always feel an all-black look is the ideal canvas to convey your sense of style. 

Below are three looks I styled to show how easy it is to make all-black say completely different things depending on how it's put together - definitely far from boring!

And, if you're still stuck for your party outfit, I've also rounded up my fave Little Black Pieces Under $250.

Happy shopping and partying!

Simply Edgy

For a strong edgy look, add a studded choker to a simple slip dress.

Sexy Senorita

Want something a little more exotic? Try this Dolce & Gabbana-inspired two-piece which combines a lace and fringing. A knock-out earring completes the picture.

Sleek & Chic

Or for looking for an outfit that is more restrained and yet sexy, try a lace-up corset bustier over a pencil skirt.
