Another way of dressing up your LBD or giving it a twist is by going for a hairstyle to add contrast or harmony to your look.
If your LBD is short and sexy, contrast with a simple ponytail.
If your dress is more conservative, in a Victorian style for example, go for a soft, sexy haircut such as a loose bun with strands pulled out.
A black head-band to match your LBD can look chic and smart, especially with a few strands of hair pulled loose at the front.
