We’ve long extolled the virtues of the little black dress, particularly for the holiday season, but sometimes it doesn’t pack as big a sartorial punch as we were aiming for. Enter the savvy styling trick the ladies of Rachel Zoe Studio used on Lucy Hale at last night’s American Music Awards in LA. Her all-black palette—consisting of an embroidered Vera Wang cocktail dress, Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and a sleek Edie Parker clutch—made an ideal canvas for playing with statement jewelry. Choosing an Art Deco aesthetic to create a unified look, they made a statement with bold rings, putting several on both hands. The result is an edgy-yet-polished ensemble that is totally easy to recreate.
Why not transform your little black dress for this year’s party circuit by piling on these baubles? Finish with a moody grey manicure and a deep lip. (Extra points for a tousled lob like Hale’s.)
