Dress: Donna Morgan / Necklace: J.Crew (old) / Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim (this color is no longer available, but this fuschia color is gorgeous! / Shoes: Casadei (I bought these heels on Gilt years ago, but they still have the style available in this lipstick red color. Perfect for fall!)
Earlier this summer, I did a photo shoot with the brand Donna Morgan, which is an online shop that offers a great selection of extremely versatile dresses that are easy to style, and retail under $200. I first shared about this project back in June when I showed how I styled this pretty summer maxi from day to night (also worn here). But now with fall upon us, I thought it was season-appropriate to share the second part of the shoot, which shows how I transitioned this little black dress from day to night by using pieces from my own closet.
Earrings: From Karla’s Closet x Roman Luxe Collaboration / Jacket: Zara / Clutch: DVF (old, gifted) / Shoes: Zara
Jacket: IRO (I scored this jacket majorly on sale but this inky-hued, deep purple version is also pretty stunning.) / Necklace: Bauble Bar (gift) / Bag: J.Crew / Shoes: Schutz (old, but similar options here and here)
The thing about a LBD is, it can be worn alone and still look amazing because it represents a polished, chic look, perfect for the office or happy hour, depending on the length and cut of course. :) But sometimes it’s fun to change it up a bit. So for instance, an easy way to create a daytime look is to try and keep the colors a bit brighter to lighten up the look of the dress. In this case, I used a punchy neon bag and pretty lavender shoes. Then for evening styles, I opted for more bold and striking pieces, such as a patterned leopard coat or an edgy maroon leather jacket. xo
