DETAILS: BLACK VELVET DRESS (LOVE THIS ONE) | LEATHER JACKET (SIMILAR HERE) | BLACK ANKLE BOOTS
DETAILS: BLACK VELVET DRESS (LOVE THIS NAVY OPTION) | OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS
As much as I love to get dressed up, my favorite looks are always those that balance the feminine and the edgy. When I found this dress I was instantly obsessed – I love the velvet and lace combo! It’s a little sweeter than I normally go but dresses are one of the easiest pieces to give your own spin and adapt to fit your style. You can transition them for any occasion with a few edgy or casual additions – some of my favorites are below:
1.) Leather jacket: Is there any look that a leather jacket can’t instantly transform? It’s my first addition to toughen up any look. I love the edgy moto vibe against the sweet lace and velvet detail in this Elie Tahari dress (love this one). It makes even the most feminine dress a perfect option to wear during the day or to work meetings.
2.) Ankle boots: My pump collection is proof – I never say no to a good pump. But sometimes the obvious shoe isn’t always the best shoe. Go for something just as sophisticated but a little more unexpected with a sleek bootie. I also love an embellished ankle boot for more of a statement. It will instantly take a classic lace dress to a new level that works in the office with a blazer or by itself out for dinner after.
3.) Soft sweaters: One of the coziest ways to transform a dress is with a pretty pullover sweater. I especially love this look with fitted dresses (obsessed with this suede dress!) or to highlight pretty details on the hem. How pretty are these tassels?
4.) Over-the-knee boots: Hands-down the best way to rock your mini dresses well beyond fall – ditch your tights for an over-the-knee boot! The combo is such a clean look, shows just enough skin to be sexy but still warm, and may be the easiest possible pairing to pull off.
