    Susan Swimmer, editor of MORE Magazine, and Kristin Rawson, Style Director from Ann Taylor show their tips of how to dress fashionably this holiday season. This video focuses on transforming the little black dress.

    Susan Swimmer: Hi, I am Susan Swimmer, with MORE Magazine. Kristin Rawson: And I am Kristin Rawson, the Style Director of Ann Taylor. Susan Swimmer: Today we are going to talk about the little black dress. Everyone has a little black dress in their wardrobe, if you don't have one, get one. It's a great place to start a perfect classic piece. I always say, layer on top, layer underneath. Let's start. Kristin Rawson: Add a pop of color to your black dress, it's the perfect staple piece but it needs something to dress it up. For example, here we have got perfect red coat. Susan Swimmer: Red, an ideal holiday color, but how about the jewelry. Lots and lots of layers, lots of necklaces and mixed metals and mixed stones can really liven up a black dress and it frames your face. Kristin Rawson: Dress up your black dress by adding some texture. A fur stole or a metallic scarf is a great way to really make your little black dress party perfect. Susan Swimmer: If you're going to wear all black, use a lot of texture to make the looks luxury. I am telling you a classic little black dress is the most versatile piece in your wardrobe. You can be holiday ready in an instant.
