Review: Vogue 1460 | The Perfect Ponte Knit Dress for Fall!12:00 AM
Styling tip: When I initially put this dress on, I loved the simplicity of the design, but I thought - "basic". And considering my venue: A Fall Fashion Presentation at Saks Fifth Avenue during the evening, I wanted to be anything but! This dress needed a little zhooshing up. And that's what accessories are for! I added a cream, black and gray BCBG belt (it's old) and my newly favorite magenta suede pumps. And I grabbed my black tote because it was already packed! With this neckline, I liked my hair up. I decided to go with big dangling chandelier earrings and no necklace -- because of the statement belt. It can also be worn with anything from a pair of Converse sneakers to flat riding boots with a denim jacket.
We all need basics in our wardrobes. Everything doesn't have to be bright colored or bold printed. That's how you create wardrobe orphans that you get sick of wearing, people get sick of seeing you wear and you end up with a closet full of nothing to wear. A basic dress like this is like a clean slate every time you pull it out because of the range of possibilites as far as styling goes.
