“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” While the original author of this quote is disputed, it has been connected to the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci and Steve Jobs. Both men understand that sometimes, less is more. Sophistication comes from the simple things in life. This is especially true when it comes to fashion; you don’t always need to wear outrageous styles and crazy colors to look chic and polished. Take a look at this Fashionista’s ensemble for example!
She’s wearing a purely white dress with a see-through mesh design along the neckline, midriff and bottom—simple with a dash of sensual. The mesh outlines the sweetheart neckline and highlights the smallness of the waist without being too revealing. The dress is feminine without being tacky. Wanting the mesh design to be the center of attention, she pairs the dress with minimalist nude heels and a statement necklace. No other jewelry is needed. The resulting, overall look is classy, elegant and perfect for attending formal events.
How To: The see-through component of mesh is perfect for the summer heat. It’s versatile too; it’s a design you can find not only on dresses but also T-shirts, crop tops, tank tops and more. Dress it up or dress it down. Just make sure to add jewelry and shoes that don’t distract but instead enhance the look you’re going for. Remember, less is more!
