Little Black Dress Edition
As one of the number one recurring and classic fashion trends, the little black dress is a key staple in every woman’s wardrobe. The little black dress offers immense versatility as maximum wearability.
When paired with a cardigan, blazer or trench it can easily be used as an asset to your professional wardrobe, and easily transitioned into a great piece for cocktails or evening wear.
Drenched in Balmain and Yves Saint Laurent this edition of Kim Kardashian’s outfit offers versatility. A simple black dress belted in leather to draw contrast and to accentuate the waist, is accompanied by pleats with flatter the hourglass shape by offering a streamlined silhouette. These components paired with white as her pop of color, is successfully utilized as a fashionable contrast, while still drawing the eye up the leg with the fabulous Yves Saint Laurent booties. This outfit averages out at a little under $4,700.00.
The little black dress can also be used to create and accentuate the slimming stream lines that women often turn to to highlight their best assets. This use of the little black dress is perfect for women who are looking to maximize through a minimalists perspective.
A similar dress casual outfit could run you anywhere from $100.00 to $450.00 depending in your taste.
Here’s what I found to build a similar look:
White blazer on shopstyle.com by designer Rag & Bone for $69.50.
Black sheer top, dart pleated mini dress by Halston Heritage for $112.00 or Pleated Satin dress with bow accent by Lotus Grace for $89.00.
Leather booties by Leverage for $59.95.
Black Leather Obi Belt by ASOS for $18.56.
This outfit was relatively easy to recreate for an average of around $250.00. The pieces used to build the outfit are great staple pieces therefore it is okay to invest a little more money into the quality because they can be used just as well separately.
It’s not hard to shop on a budget. They keys are to know what you’re looking for, do a little research on what you want and never be afraid to look in different places.
Until next week, Chao,
