It’s nothing new that the Little Black Dress is a must-have for any fashion-conscious belle, simply because it’s an elegant and chic classic that’s appropriate for pretty much any occasion.
In case you’re just joining us (where the hell have you been? 😛 ), for the past few days I’ve been sharing a few tips on how I transition my outfits from a work day to an evening out with just a few accessory changes. You might want to catch up on the other two Outfit Hacks here and here.
I’m generally a lover of detail, but I occasionally lean towards pieces with less going on because they tend to be more versatile. Take this dress for instance. It has such a flattering cut and it’s simplicity could grant me a pass to style it differently every week for a month without anyone noticing that it’s the same dress! Now that, I absolutely love! 😀
For the day-time look, I added a dash of colour by stacking up two neck pieces in contrasting colours, but I was sure to keep the rest of the ensemble simple with nude cap-toe pumps and a matching nude tote bag. Is it just me, or is there something about cap-toe heels that will always look sophisticated and chic? For the lippie, I went with a soft pink shade, close to that of the peach neck piece.
Once I escaped the confines of the office, I ditched the soft lippie and went with a bold, red lip to play up my personality a little. I also opted for a shoulder piece which, to me, oozes a luxe “lady-who-dines-and-loves-Michael Jackson” feel, while making a bold statement at the same time. Strappy heeled sandals are always perfect for working a dressed-up look so it was only logical that this gold pair tagged along for the ride.
