7 Different Ways To Wear The Same Little Black Dress All Holiday Season Long — PHOTOS

Brace yourself: Holiday party season is coming. No need to shop for a festive dress you'll wear once and forget about, though. There are so many different ways to wear a little black dress for the holidays that'll feel just as festive as a new purchase.

Holiday parties are both the best and the worst part of Christmas — as fun as it is to celebrate with family and friends, events are not always without drama (yes, I am still single, and do you really need another drink?) Stressing about your outfit definitely isn't worth it when there's so much else you need to stay relaxed about. Repurposing your go-to LBD keeps it simple.

And if you've got a slew of holiday parties to attend? One little black dress can be your saving grace. Either dig through your own accessories or borrow from your friends' wardrobes to update your look for several parties — 'tis the season for sharing, right? It's a cost-effective, low-maintenance way to look fabulous at any fête.

Whether your favorite little black dress is long-sleeve, v-neck, bodycon, voluminous, or anything in between, there are a ton of ways to wear it. Here are seven ways to slay any holiday party in an LBD.

Faux Fur Fabulous

A faux fur jacket adds glam to any LBD, and it'll keep you cozy at the same time. Pair with a bold red lip, patterned tights, and a colorful clutch.

Skirt Illusion

Top off your holiday ensemble with a cable knit sweater to turn your Little Black Dress into a Little Black Skirt. Tall black boots and sparkly accessories finish the look.

Tulle Touch

Give your LBD a little volume by layering a fun tulle skirt underneath (or even on top of it, if you're feeling especially festive.) Classic red pumps and simple gold jewelry make the style sweet but sophisticated.

Lovely In Leather

If your style's trendy-tough, no need to change your vibe for the holidays. Wear a leather jacket over an LBD and add a box clutch, drop earrings, and nude heels.

All Decked Out

If there's one time of year to go all-out with the bling, it's the holiday season. Layer on gold and pearl accessories for a dazzling party look. A faux fur clutch and ankle strap heels keep it stylish and seasonal.

Give your LBD a chic update by layering a thin turtleneck underneath and slipping your feet into metallic menswear-inspired loafers. Glittering hair pins give the look a little feminine touch.

Classic Christmas Cape
