It is my belief that every woman should own a little black dress (LBD). It is a MUST for all girls that aim to be fashionistas. The LBD is the most versatile piece in your wardrobe: Hot date, LBD; night out with the girls, LBD; Sunday brunch with the parents, that’s right, LBD. Might I suggest a remake of the classic LBD worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Work It, Girl
For that hot date you want to be sexy but chic. All of your accessories should be traditional and lady-like, but interesting textures and colors will ensure you tickle his fancy. A classic bag made with laser-cut leather will hold all of your necessities. Why not throw on a tassel necklace? It says, “I’m a confident woman that doesn’t take herself too seriously.” The flower ring is a pop of color and appropriately named “Date Night.“ A three-inch heel on the shoes will guarantee that your legs look long and lean, and the black-on-black polka dots add a modern twist.
Paint the Town
A girl’s night gives you an excuse to look amazing. If your hot date turns out to be a dud, this is the perfect opportunity to strut your stuff. Go mod with a wild clutch. By the end of the night (and too many Cosmos) you may want to switch to the cross-body chain. A bib necklace keeps the look trendy. These heels will turn heads and make you the envy of your friends. There is no rule that says your accessories have to match, but they do need to coordinate. Notice how the bag ties everything together?
Choosing an appropriate outfit for Sunday brunch with the parents can be a breeze. Save the drama for your mama, and stay comfortable and casual. You can never go wrong with a large, paisley-print tote. For jewelry, let your earrings be your statement piece. Throw on a pair of bejeweled sandals, and you’re good to go.
