The Shimmering Mini
A chic, patterned coat adds an eclectic touch to this luxe mini dress, while a neutral handbag and matching booties boast casual coolness. The result? Elevated street style perfect for shopping downtown or a lunch date at that café with the amazing terrace.
The Shining Sheath
This cocktail dress is as elaborately detailed as they come, but its cool blue hue makes it a wonderful canvas to revamp into a daytime delight. Tone down its extravagance with dark knit tights and ankle booties of the same color, and this sultry sheath becomes a playful frock! Hit the new exhibit at the museum or catch up with old friends over a decadent cappuccino.
The Dazzling Midi
Here, an elegant midi dress transforms into something more casual when paired with an edgy moto jacket and flats in a contrasting hue. Replacing heels with flats and loafers add subtlety and any-day wear to formal dresses, and fun colors make it, well, fun! Now, it may be blasphemous for you to wear a sequined dress to work, but trade the moto jacket for a blazer and, I dare say, you’ve got yourself an office-friendly outfit.
With the right silhouette, shoes, and accessories, fancy dresses are destined for so much more than champagne toasts, slow dances, and candlelit dinners. Where will you take your fave formal frock next?
