With all the holiday parties that happen at this time of year, it can be hard to know what to wear. Luckily, Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi has got your back. 

In Gretchen's video for AOL On, she gives tips on how to liven up that old fashion standby: The little black dress.

"First and foremost, just add a pop of color with a shoe — a red shoe, an orange shoe, a pink shoe," Gretchen says. "Any color like that that can just really pop the dress is just beautiful against the black." 

"Another idea is just to add a belt to the little black dress," she says while holding up a bright pink belt. "If you add a belt like so, it changes the whole look up. You can also throw a hat on — a colored hat like so. This is purple, and it just adds a pop of color to the dress, changes it up — [to] not [have] everything all in black." 


"Another great idea is to add some beautiful jewelry to the dress," she continues. "Also, another great idea of course is to have a pop of color with a beautiful handbag. I have my Gretchen Christine handbag — it's a beautiful pink color."

Thanks for the tips, Gretch!
