The Black Dress

With all of the amazing trends that are swirling around in the fashion world that we all seem to want to try out, sometimes it is nice to just take things back to basics with a simple black dress. It is the perfect staple to have in your wardrobe because you just can’t go wrong! It is slimming, sophisticated and just flattering on everyone.

I absolutely loved wearing this black dress from Asilio, because even though it is simple it has just enough detail to make it unique. The high neck and the way the bottom of the dress is gathered really gives it an elevated look. I find that sometimes the most basic clothing items can look stunning just because of the close attention to detail that the garment was made with. These are elements that make me so happy when I wear an outfit!

I paired the dress with this gorgeous See by Chloe bag, which  helped to dress down the look a little bit since it has a more casual vibe with the tassels. The shoes are ones I pulled out of my wardrobe from a few years ago and they are Circa Joan & David (similar here). Styling this look reminded me that sometimes less really is more. xo
