STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: LBD and Chill

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: LBD and Chill

It’s now at least 89 degrees on the East Coast, with a high chance of a rad summer! Catching flights, trips to the beach, pool parties, photo shoots and brunches is what my summer consists of! Oh, and did I mention in that list that I love summer fashion? The great thing about this season is that there are so many amazing trends: My all time favorite trend (that you can never go wrong with) is a LBD—dress it up with a pair of Christian Louboutins, or dress it down with some Balenciaga, either way you win. What I love most about this look is that it allows you to pull off something edgy when you throw on some sneakers with your little black dress (accessorizing along the way). Another awesome thing about this look is that it doesn’t take long to assemble, and it’s definitely efficient in this summertime heat!

Whoever said you can’t wear a dress with kicks? This Fashionista chose the perfect LBD  paired with her (very cool) pair of sneakers to enjoy an evening out with friends. She was going for a relaxed, minimal look; wearing a timeless piece that’s so versatile it’s impossible to not look good in. Her V-neck dress was a looser, sundress style which gave off that oh-so-coveted casual-but-cool vibe everyone wants when choosing comfort first. The open back of her dress is adds a pseudo-formal edge, contrasting with the solid front. Minimal front with a dramatic back. Statement piece, much?

What I loved most about this Fashionista’s look is how she accessorized it: she chose a neutral color for her attire, but her pink “dad hat” is what brings the whole outfit together. Keeping with the dress style, she kept her other accessorizing minimal—for jewelry, she threw on a watch and a small necklace and called it a day; less is always more.

Who knew it was this easy to look this trendy?
