I’ve touched on the topic of tight clothing and styling body concious pieces, a few times previously. So, it should be no surprise that I rarely wear tight bodycon dresses on their own. Usually only wearing them in the summertime with either a vest or light jacket. To work this type of dress into a cooler climate, I decided to drape a classic black trench overtop.
What I like most, is the contrast between the tight, curve hugging dress and the flowy but refined jacket. Another tip for styling a trench like this, especially if you’re wearing it inside, is to cuff the sleeves. Having the sleeves at a 3/4 length helps keep everything from looking “too heavy”. I typically style this type of dress with a strappy shoe but I really loved how it looked with these ankle boots. They work really well with the jacket and adds subtle texture with the veau velours and embellished red/gold crest.
This is more so beauty related, but I’ve been loving the look of a messy bun and low messy pony. It’s effortlessly chic and is perfect for day (or two) old hair. I also find myself constantly reaching for glossy red and plum lipsticks lately. Matte is usually a go to if I’m going out at night but I’m really into a glossy semi sheer pout for daytime. I’m wearing Revlon’s Black Cherry lipstick, which has been a favourite of mine since forever.
