A dress for any occasion
If you are looking at sensible picks this season then buy something which will be more of a wardrobe staple rather than going for something that is seasonal. One of my favorite picks here have been animal print dress, which can be dressed up or down. They can be made quirkier or elegant, depending on how you accessorize it.
Basically, animal prints have been in style ever since we started wearing them as cavemen. They come from a much more humane idea of wearing fur but not having to hurt any animals in the process. You can take a cue from celebrities like Kate Moss to Lady Gaga, who know how to make the prints work in their favor. Pick anything from leopard to zebra prints.
Check out this evergreen Liz Claiborne ruched animal print maxi dress that features a bold animal print and ruched detailing. It allows this maxi dress stand out from the rest of the pack. Add a belt to flatter your waistline. For a formal look pair it with a sleek belt or go beltless for a bohemian style.
A Navy sheath dress again, is always a winner when it comes to formal occasions. Think Kate Middleton who has tried navy in almost everything from lace to jersey. Sheath dress is a lovely form fitting dress that really flatters those who have an hourglass figure. And navy really works well with this texture because it offers the same gorgeous feel of black, without being too dark or suppressing that intricate lace underneath.
Wear them with navy pumps for an elegant look or go for some color blocking with funky contrasts. Apart from lace, the outfit works great with satin, chiffon or quilter jacquard too. This intensely worked jacquard with curve-contouring silhouette from Rabih Kayrouz is perfect for fall. You can pair them with black leggings or stockings on colder nights.
