You know the dress! Your ‘LBD’ or that ‘I always feel good in this’ dress. It seems almost every woman has a go-to black number hanging in her closet she can count on when the night calls for cocktail attire. But what about when your little black dress feels a bit stale or you just want to accessorize it in the latest trends?
Gold compliments black and adds an instant pop of glam! On our last night in Mallorca, Spain we went to dinner and I decided to add gold accents from head-to-toe…
The Scene ~ Date Night at Port Adriano in Mallorca
How to Create a Designer Look-for-Less ~ A few seasons back, Gucci went crazy for colorblocking and often featured gold, black and this same green hue. After finding these Gucci strappy heels at an outlet, it was time to channel the look. If you always reach for black or nude heels, try a metallic strappy one this spring and summer.
The Higher the Neckline, The Higher the Bun ~ A trick to feeling polished and put-together (especially with a high neckline) is a flirty top knot. It’s hot hairstyle rocked by Lauren Conrad to catwalks worldwide. Sexy Style Secret ~ If your collarbones are covered, show off the nape of your neck.
Your 3 Minute Top-Knot ~ Pull your hair into a high ponytail. Tease the ponytail for volume. Then wrap it around into a a bun and bobby-pin it in place. Finish with hairspray and a glitzy pair of earrings.
Snakes for Spring 2013~ Snakeskin print has slithered its way into the animal print ‘must have’ of the moment. Go for a snake skin print clutch, heels or accessorize your black dress with a gold snake bracelet or pinkie ring.
‘Honey, where’d we park the yacht?’… Just Kidding. Whenever I see boats like this, I think of Goldie Hawn in ‘Overboard’ before she (literally) fell for Kurt Russell.
