This is by far the most challenge that I have been participating. I own many black dresses but when it comes to dressing up one, I am clueless. I picked up this little black dress last month at Macy’s thinking it would be a versatile piece to have. Two things about this dress that caught my attention: pleats and lace. Although black isn’t my first choice of color when it comes to clothing but I see potential for a lot of variations. I’ve put together 3 outfits and I hope you’ll like them. Don't forget to vist The Little Dust Princess for other fabulous ideas. A big thank to Jessy for hosting this challenge!
Outfit # 1: This outfit would be cute for date night or dinner out. As you can tell, I am wearing the exact same belt (buy similar here) and shoes (buy similar here) from my previous post. I know I am boring and/or running out of ideas :) However, I do like the black/red combination. This dress has a very sexy deep-V back which I love.
Outfit # 2: If you’re not into matchy matchy belts and shoes, then try outfit # 2 for a casual look. I just simply added a scarf for a pop of color. I scored this silk scarf at LOFT last season for $4.99 and I love it! It can also be worn as a belt. I can see myself wearing this outfit with flats to run errands on the weekend.
Outfit # 3: I'm always trying to come up with ways to style my clothes. I created the outfit # 3 for the office. I paired it with a leopard cardigan (buy similar here) and a black belt with a touch of gold (buy it here). The cardigan also helps covering up the back of the dress.
When I first bought this dress, the skirt had a layer of polyester tulle (see outfit # 1). I am not really into tulle so I snipped it off. Overall, I think this dress would be a perfect transition from day to night, work to play. What do you ladies think?
