When it comes to dressing up a portfolio, investors can't go wrong with the Dividend Aristocrats -- stocks that have bumped up their dividends annually for at least 25 years. Here are three companies that three of our Foolish contributors think are especially enticing. Amanda Alix: For a stock that is so closely tied to the fortunes of the housing market, home-improvement retailer Lowe's (NYSE: LOW) has been an excellent performer, steadily increasing payouts even during the depths of the housing crisis.

Eric Volkman: As far as dividends are concerned, you can't get much more aristocratic than Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO). The beverage king, which needs no introduction, has paid a quarterly distribution for nearly 100 years running. And that payout has increased every year for the past half-century, longer than a great many of its shareholders have been alive. Jordan Wathen: Chubb (NYSE: CB ) is one of the sleepiest of Dividend Aristocrats. As a property and casualty insurance company, its core business is just about as boring as its gets. Nonetheless, Chubb has increased its dividend for 48 years in a row, backed by some of the best profitability metrics in insurance today.
