Who’s the Boss?
A black or white dress is your universal solution when it comes to all dressing dilemmas. Just throw on a black dress to feel instantly confident and elegant. For instance, it’s never a wrong idea to go completely black with a wrap dress if you have a strict dress code in the office. But to create an unmissable outfit (given your office is a little okay with experimentation) consider this shift dress. It boasts of a little collar and paisley print for a contemporary twist. For something a little more timeless with a hint of retro, go for polka dresses that work as hard as you.
Break The Monotony
Some monochromatic styles are too good to mess with. Keeping it simple is the best way to go. Need proof? Check out this all-black off-shoulder dress. Add a little texture with a statement necklace or brush your bright red lipstick for a pop of color. When it comes to playing with contrast, black and white make a fail-safe, obvious choice. Take this one step further when you seek an animal print dress and complete it with a pair of nude heels for a touch of femininity.
Simplicity is the key for most of us, but others prefer going all out. A white dress can make you look polished in a snap. You can keep things interesting by highlighting contrasting textures that can take you from chic to dreamy elegance effortlessly. For an all-white look, the trick is to adapt bright, bold colors. For instance, seek a red statement necklace or go for a bling twist with rose gold jewelry. It’s subtle and screams minimalism. Complete your look with white heels or sneakers, depending on the occasion. One perk of keeping your outfit entirely white is that it gives any trend an air of sophistication.
Put Your Best Foot Forward
Streamline your outfits with shoes that will take you places. When it comes to heels, black works for both black and white dresses. If this seems cliché, try nude and cream colors with your dresses. While selecting sneakers, seek neutral colors. It’s always a good idea to stick to the same color palette or consider fluorescent colors for your white, short dresses for casual nights.
