Little Black Dress for the Fall for women in their 50's, 60's & 70's.

Little Black Dress Fall for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Office Wear

Quote of the day: “Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.” Peter F. Drucker

The little black dress is still seen everywhere you look. The three of us wore these same dresses for the summer version of going to the office here. So why not add a little more coverage and consider it relevant for autumn? Lightweight jackets, 3/4 length sleeve jackets/sweaters and thinner cardigans all do the trick nicely in my opinion.

50’s LBD: Who doesn’t love footwear on their ears? These earrings make me want to have boots that look just like them!

60’s LBD: Even a relatively casual sweater could be appropriate for the office if it’s layered over your dress & accessorized with jewelry. This one has a little sheen in person which makes it look somewhat less casual.

70’s LBD: A blazer is the easiest way to make the dress fit into the office environment.  And if you’re sitting behind a desk most of the day, no one will see the ruffle trim on the dress.

Smile, for it makes the day better!!  How often do you wear your LBD?

Linking up with Confident Tuesday, Wearing with Wisdom, Fresh Fashion Forum, What I Wore to Work Weekly & Trend Spin Linkup

Since the theme is work attire, I found some lightweight jackets or sweaters you could wear with that LBD:

    I like your stylings for all 3 versions, all 3 ladies. You really can do a lot with a sleeveless, lightweight dress – black of course, but any color or print really. Your ideas are very helpful and have me thinking about my many sleeveless dresses. I’m not crazy about the sleeveless look – I like an extended or cap sleeve. So, I’ll just pair them with a shrug, cardi, blouse or jacket. (I hate the severely cut-in sleeveless dresses that women wear on news shows – looks inappropriate, unflattering even on the thinnest and youngest gal and downright ugly. And, really crazy for cold weather.)

      How funny you say this about the sleeveless dresses. Another woman just told me the same thing at a fashion talk I did last year! But then I read an article about how sleeveless dresses are easier to make for the manufacturers and retail companies—so it kinda makes sense!!

  • I love adding toppers to dresses to use for mulit seasons. These are all great options. Cute earrings!

    • Funny how I never thought to do it before I got into blogging! Thanks for always checking in, Tracey!!!
