Add some brightness and sharp contrast to a little black dress with shiny silver accessories. I took the cue from this Robert Rodriquez dress that came with a gleaming silver belt. Why not add a silver belt to a black dress that you already own, and get a similar designer look? This works from day to evening, but I like it better for day. I did not add a silver necklace because of the silver zipper details at the neckline of this dress, but you can add a silver necklace and shinny silver cuff.
