3 Ways: Little Black Dress
The little black dress is an obvious statement piece that is anything but basic. Forever 21 sent me this dress a few weeks back and I have worn about 5 times already. I love to wear it with some black strappy sandals and oversized sunglasses for the daily. I think the key in a little black dress is finding one with a unique detail. It doesn’t have to be obvious, actually subtlety is the best option here. Like this Forever 21 one that has a funnel neck and a mod inspired cut which makes it look instantly on point. There are a gazillion ways to wear this dress, as I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, but just incase you are a super visual person…here are 3 ways to wear this LBD.
1. I styled the first look thinking of a way to transition into fall. Once the summer days start to get a bit breezier. This would be a great date look. I have to be honest, Im not a fan of this shoe silhouette at the moment but I really love this print in a shoe especially contrasted with the black on Denim. Gray is a really big trend for this upcoming seasons so I figured I would throw this into the look with a hat and scarf. Love the way the denim makes everything less of a serious situation and the gray accessories add a parisian vibe.

2. This look is my fave of the three. More attitude slightly less safe. I made this retro silhouette a bit more interesting by layering on a white vest. Adding a belt to this kind of dress can also really change the whole look. Depending on the belt, you can pretty much set the tone of the whole outfit. I chose this silver one to play off the buckle on my black boots.
3. For the third look I left the black dress in its purest form. With some simple accessories to keep the focus on the mod cut of the dress (although a ring or bracelet wouldn’t hurt at all!). I pretty much use a variation of this all the time to work from home. Simple, comfy and all I have to do is fix the hair a little to look effortlessly put together before heading out of the house. If you wanted to dress it up you could throw on some sexy strappy heels, statement jewelry and a good clutch.
