This is the first post in a series I’m starting on Wardrobe Essentials. Today I am showing you the first item, a classic black dress, and how I tend to style mine. The one I own is a Michael Kors T-shirt dress that is very similar to the one above, which is actually from H&M. I would recommend buying something simple and versatile, in a comfortable yet luxurious feeling fabric. That way you can dress it up or down easily.
Look #1: Casual
For this look I paired the dress with some chucks, a crossbody bag, a scarf and a denim jacket with some cool, statement making sunglasses. This is a great way to wear the CBD on the go, just layer it up and head out the door!
Look #2: Tribal
This is actually a look that I wear pretty often, and I did my best to recreate it here. The tribal look involves strappy sandals with lots of accessories in natural stones and skins. I wear something almost identical to what is above, with the exception of the necklace; mine is a coral and turquoise multi-strand statement maker. I wear this with a high, messy pony tail and natural looking makeup. It’s a great in-between outfit; not too casual and not too fancy.
Look #3: Dressy
The dressy option is actually pretty simple. Wear your highest, nicest heels with simple jewelry (pearls are great) and a jealousy-inducing-yet-not-too-flashy clutch, and top it off with don’t-look-at-me sunglasses and a pop of color on your lips. I was inspired by Breakfast at Tiffany’s for this one, can you tell? =p
That’s it! What do you guys think? How do you wear your classic black dress?
