So I recently purchased this dress from H&M when it was on sale and I absolutely love it. When I first tried this on, I actually wanted to get another dress, but this one looks so great on that I just had to get it.
It's costs I believe BD7 on sale. I actually bought this in a UK size 12, which would normally be MASSIVE on me (I'm a little over 5ft, so I'm pretty petite). But it was the only piece left and I was willing to alter it. HOWEVER! The size fits very well! It is the right length too!
Put in mind that I'm working with one dress, no makeup, and the natural texture of my hair, and that any outfit can be completely transformed with the choice of makeup or a hair do.
So, let's get started then...
Running errands and/or going to class:
As you can see I'm wearing two shoes. The one on my right foot is a peep-toed bootie from H&M. It gives me some extra height, and elongates my leg. On my left foot is a sandal from Alcott and it's flat, comfortable and great for running around. Both are great with this outfit and it really depends on what you would prefer.
Quick lunch with the girls:
In this pairing, I put in mind the cooler weather. So this outfit will be great for Fall/Winter. I paired the black dress with a patent leather jacket from Forever 21. The contrast of the matte dress and the shininess of the jacket create a cool effect without adding much color. I added a long 2-tier silver necklace from Forever 21 and a headband from Aldo (I think). The boots are also from Aldo (For more detail check out the Boots I love! post). To finish off this look, I added a silver ring and a grey studded bag (nine west)
Here's another boho-chic look more suitable for the transition between spring and fall:
That bracelet is made by a family member and they are actually for sale! She has quite a collection and I personally bought quite a few. They are great pieces to just stack on and go. They're great quality too!
A dramatic, edgy look. Combines soft pinks and neutrals with basic black. The shoes are ruffly H&M booties, the headband is Topshop, the bag is a Daydreamer Tote from Juicy Couture and the sunglasses are ALDO. Go with a pale pink lip and neutral eye for this one.
Another office-appropriate look:
So those are some of the outfits that I came up with for this dress! The possibilities really are limitless with a basic black dress such as this one. All you need is some accessories and a little bit of creativity!
