If there is a single, essential piece of versatile clothing every woman must own, the history of fashion has declared that it is the little black dress. In the words of celebrated fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, “One is never overdressed or underdressed with a little black dress.”

But simply wearing the dress itself doesn’t mean an outfit is complete. There are the accessories to consider – those final touches that complement, freshen up, or embellish the simple, sleek elegance of the little black dress. From jewelry to handbags, we checked in with a few of our favorite local boutiques to find BFFs for your LBD.
