The Little Black Dress

Almost every girl or lady has a classic piece, like a LBD (Little Black Dress) waiting in her closet to be worn. We usually fall back to the “safe zone”, pairing it with black or nude colours and saving it for the colder seasons (I’m sure most of us agree to this!). Black is a shade that can be paired with any colour as well as this seasons new trend, neon hues, to give it the versatile look you have been craving for!  A great thing about the LBD is that it is so timeless that most of us have had the same one for years! 
Here are a couple different ideas I put together for day wear and evening wear:

The Dress

1st Example – Day Wear

 

For my Day Wear I chose green hued flats with gold studs to give this outfit a pop of brightness. I added a white MK handbag and a boho-chic arrow head ring for a causal cool look. This is perfect for shopping and exploring a day in the city!

               2nd Example – Evening Wear




The 2nd look is one of my favourite colour and print combos! I love the spotted print clutch matched with the electric blue peep-toe’s. The bangle ties in both colour to give it the perfect edgy-vibe. I would wear this out in the evening for dinner or a party. 

Do you have a staple LBD in your wardrobe?

A Simple Switch: Day to Night Outfit


Day to Night Outfit

Sometimes there are days when we don’t have the time to go home and change our “day” outfit into a “night” outfit.  To make life easier, here are some simple pieces to help transition your look! 

Today I wore a bright neon orange chiffon top and dark blue denim. This combo gave a great versatile look from day to night. It can easily be changed with a simple switch of accessories, shoes and a great clutch! These few changes gave me 2 chic looks.



Day Outfit

 

My day outfit was comfortable and stylish without looking too done-up.  This is one of my favourite colours for the summer as the pop of neon orange made it chic and trendy. It made me feel cool and casual.

Night Outfit


My choice for night wear was easy to pull together. The mix of neon orange, dark denim, black, gold and silver works well together. This outfit had a simple transition with black pumps and accessories, without having to change my whole outfit. This look is perfect for a date or a night out in the town with your girlfriends!
