We all love a little black dress. Also, we all Michael Kors. Combine the two, and you’ve got yourself an article of clothing that is bound to become a staple in your wardrobe, easily transitioning from day to night. After all, the designer himself said that he makes clothes that “women really want to wear”. If your interest has been spiked, check out the Michael Kors boutique in NYC, and I guarantee you, you won’t be disappointed. For now, let’s take a look at one of the many faces a little black dress can take, if complemented with the right additions.
Since it’s still chilly outside, try this versatile, stretch-wool Michael Kors dress. It has a lovely fit and flare silhouette, which will highlight all of the finer curves of your figure, like a trim waist; while subtly hiding all potential defects. An additional plus of this particular model is the classic neckline, allowing you to do some layering and pair it with a classic white button down. A good choice would be this poplin-cotton shirt by Maison Martin Margiela. With its sharp collar and slim-fitting shape, it won’t even be noticeable underneath the dress; and it will give your outfit a premium and polished look that will work both in and out of the office. Of course, no outfit would be complete without a pop of color, and this Diane Von Furstenberg Esther Jacket is a perfect choice when it comes to that. Block-colored and striped, it is a piece that will stand out on its own and give the needed edge to your otherwise traditional outfit.
Marilyn Monroe once said that if you give a girl the right shoes, she can conquer that world; and boy was she right! This pair of Acne boots is textbook example of what one should wear when engaging in world-conquering, one style at a time. Loaded with downtown cool, they are a first choice of any fashionista; and bonus points for actually being comfortable. Seeing as the devil is in the details, the finishing touches of an outfit, namely the accessories, are just as important as the basic pieces. Try on this Oscar De La Renta emerald-green crystal stone necklace to bring the focus up and add some glamour to your outfit. Finally, pick up this Sheltered Island tote by Marc Jacobs, which is a chic update from the traditional doctor’s bag. With its multi-textured leather and gold and silver metal accents, it has a high-fashion rock feel to it, and it is definitely roomy enough to fit all of your lady kick-knacks. Now that you have your outfit laid out in front of you, make sure to rock it with passion and a smile on your lips, because after all it is the best make-up a girl can ever wear, if you are to believe Yves Saint Laurent; and we most certainly do.
