TRENDY DINNER WITH FRIENDS
If you are going out bar-hopping or trying out a trendy restaurant, an LBD with cascading ruffles down the bib lends the spirit of fun. You can cinch it with a wide belt for a modern look, or leave it as is.
GALLERY HOPPING OR FILM PREMIERE
This Moschino LBD is wonderfully arty and edgy. It begs for boots to go with them. The height of the boots depend on the state of your legs:
- Long, sexy legs look great with ankle boots or gladiator heels
- Others might need the balancing effect of calf-high or even over-the-knee boots
- Architectural jewelry in sharp silver top it off smartly
The cowl neck softens the classic sheath shape of this Narciso Rodriguez dress. It is serious enough for seats to the Symphony and will look great for years. You can modernize with platform pumps or strappy ankle shooties.
Because of its simple shape, it can do double duty at work, with a structured bag and even a leather belt. Throw a tailored jacket on top, and you're all business.
When I need a packable, simply glamorous evening dress, I reach for this stretchy halter dress with keyhole decolletage. Lida Baday makes lots of dresses in stretch, black jersey which defies wrinkles in the suitcase.
This LBD works just as well on a beach vacation for a fancy dinner, yet is sophisticated enough for the big city.
