Q. I purchased this dress to wear to a holiday party, birthday party and a wedding this December. For the birthday party, I was thinking of wearing it with black leggings and black ankle boots and a black cardigan, to dress it down a bit. What do you think of that idea? For the holiday party and the wedding, what shoes? Maybe a black chunky pump or gray suede ankle boots? I’m having a hard time deciding!
A. Great dress! And I love that you’ll get at least 3 wearings from it. Your birthday party pairings sound perfect, alternatively you can try a black blazer or motorcycle jacket. The holiday party and wedding call for glam accessories that are a bit more special than a black pump or gray suede ankle boot (though these would be fine too). We suggest swapping the black belt that comes with the dress for something dressier, like a metallic or sequin belt. Add metallic shoes and festive accessories and you’ve got a look that will turn heads.
Here, we show three ways to style the dress (click on the accessories for buying info):
