Casual LBD With A Summer Twist

Monday, May 13, 2013



Who says you can't wear scarfs in the sunshine? Not this girl! Rock your favorite neckwear all year long.

An LBD (little black dress) is classic. Whenever I'm not sure about what to wear, I typically reach for one of my trusty black dresses - they never fail me! They're basic yet sophisticated and are universally appropriate. With the right accessories, they even have the potential to be glamorous and eye-catching. 

I styled this LBD with summer in mind, but since it hasn't quite reached those sweat-worthy temperatures yet, I nixed the bright colors and opted for neutrals with a classic pop of red. In the end, we're left with a stylish and versatile outfit that's perfect for those chilly summer nights or an overcast afternoon.
