Black is a failsafe option for a night out, but sometimes it can be a bit boring.
Another option is to wear a mostly black ensemble, but add a splash of a bold colour to brighten things up and make you stand out from the crowd.
That's exactly what Dame Kelly Holmes did when she attended the recent launch party for the Bear Grylls: Escape From Hell, Discovery Channel TV series.
The sports star teamed a sheer black blouse with black tights, black ankle boots and a black skirt which featured an eye-catching blue pattern, ensuring all eyes were on her.
Keeping with the simple look of the outfit, Kelly wore a discreet gold necklace and bracelet and kept her makeup understated.
If you want to add a pop of colour to your outfit, you can always team a classic little black dress with some coloured tights in blue, purple, red or even bright pink.
