Something terrible happened to me this past weekend: I had nothing to wear. It’s not really an exaggeration – during my closet purge last summer, I ditched a ton of clothes from my undergrad + postgrad days that were barely bar-appropriate. Unfortunately, that left me with a gaping hole in my wardrobe for versatile items that could work for a dressy lounge or club. The hunt was on.
The dress I found has been met with resounding excitement on my social networks. All the ladies I know are clamouring for it and lauding its versatility and figure-flattering capabilities. Best of all, it’s only $50.
Style Find: The Perfect Little Black Dress
What: fit & flare dress with figure-flattering seams and leather-like accents at the shoulder and hem
How much: $50
Why you need it: Along with being figure-flattering, this dress is also extremely versatile – it can be dressed up or down, it’s neither too short nor too long and the high neckline makes it work appropriate.
How to style it:
For work, add a statement necklace and a blazer along with some comfortable heels. Ditch the blazer and you’re ready for post-work drinks.
For play, don some funky heels (like the hot pink Jimmy Choos I’m sporting above), a fun headband or some chunky drop earrings.
