Ever feel confused about your style and which style tribe you fit in? Us too. In the Summer months we definitely lean towards a relaxed, boho feel and when the weather changes we swing between a more minimalist look or something more rocky. And we are talking Hendrix not Stallone.
fight plight of the confused dresser.
Chatting the other day it dawned on us that everyone is a mix of 3 celebrity style ingredients. Belle combining the odd coupling of Jane Birkin, Margot Leadbetter and Ray Mears and Bunty mixing Barbara Cartland, Harry Styles and Stevie Nicks. Think about it.. however odd they work!
Isn’t modern dressing is great?! We can mix all our style personalities up and create our own unique look and something simple like the LBD is prime for adding your own personal spin.
When it comes to party dressing the LBD is a failsafe. For us when thinking of the little black dress our minds swing between office workwear & a
boring classic court shoe to the other end of the not so classy LBD spectrum. BUT with the likes of Alexander Wang and Isabel Marant showing us a middle ground of dressing the look down, that’s were we found our happy place.
We love greeting dressed up for a night out but in true fashuun gurl mindset, we want to looked like we’ve put in the effort, but not too much. The mix of dressed up but toned down with casual pieces is what sits well with us. A lace top and evening sandals worn with distressed denim boyfriend jeans or pairing a bodycon LBD with ankle boots and a quirky patchwork denim jacket is how we roll. The DDLBD perhaps? Dressed down being key.
That’s why the Pixie Dress and the Corinne Dress from Little Black Dress fit in with our style recipe. The designs themselves have enough sass in the crochet detailing and allow us to add our own style twists.
Dressed up to get down.
