A black dress? In the summer? But It’s not just any black dress, it’s this black satin dress.
I’ve always imagined myself wearing a satin dress and recently while visiting &otherstories I was excited to see they had the exact one I had in mind. What a coincidence!
Satin it is one of my favourite fabrics, to me it represents femininity, simplicity and a great sense of style. It is a fabric that feels amazing on your skin, is easy to wear, comfortable and no matter what body size you have, it will drape your body nicely. If I could wear only satin, I would be a happy girl for life.
The little black dress is considered essential to complete a woman’s wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. You know those times when you are in a hurry and you don’t know what to wear? Or the times when you are nervous about a date and you are not sure what would fit best? Or you are just going to work and want to change your look for the day? Consider the simple, little black dress, it is almost all the time the right solution and it will save you time.
I chose to wear the dress with flat suede ballerinas and an oversized leather jacket. I think it works very well for a daytime outfit, but it would definitely look amazing with a pair of high heels for a cocktail night. For evenings, I would add a bit more jewelry or larger and flashier pieces to make a statement. I kept the makeup as simple as I could, using the darkest red lipstick in my makeup inventory to keep the focus on the dress itself.
I could talk about this dress forever but instead I will let you see more of it in the pictures.
