The Black And White Combo

June 16, 2014

I've always loved a bright colored outfit. In fact, I talk about my lack of black clothes over here ALL the time. I may be able to stop talking about this, ya'll! I don't know if it's living in LA or what, but I tend to gravitate towards black pieces these days. Sometimes simple is better (and more chic!). LA has definitely taught me that!

So let's talk about a new take on the LBD. Are you into this layering action going on?

Dress: Wayf (similar here & here)
Vest: Nordstrom
Heels: Steven by Steve Madden (also beyond obsessed with these)
Bag: Clare V c/o Piperlime
Bracelet: Cusp (old, similar here)
Sunglasses: Celine (similar here)

Next time you're styling an LBD, think about adding minimalistic layers like so. Try a vest trench, an actual trench, a cool scarf, or utility vest. Whatever your little minimalistic heart desires! Check out some options below...
