This post is from my previous blog (http://awahshasha.blogspot.ca), although I have edited the content a bit.
My mother used to say that every woman needs to have a black dress. Turns out she was absolutely right.
In this post, I am pairing up a black body con dress from Zara with different accessories to create different looks. I hope you can get some inspiration on how to wear your black dress.
PS- My apologies if these pictures are not so sharp.
1) Work or Casual Outing Look
Sometimes, less is more and flat shoes are also pretty comfortable. I wore this outfit to an evening service and wanted to look stylish while keeping my accessories very minimal. The look worked out just as I had imagined.
Sweater- Zara; Ankara purse- Hand made by Me 🙂 Shoes- Call It Spring
2) The Not So Casual Look
I pimped up the look above by wearing heels and loved the outcome. If only I could wear heels all day. (Oh well)
Shoes and Shades- Aldo
3) Coachella Maybe- Afro Party Look Definitely
I think I may have achieved the look I was looking for. (Fingers crossed). What are your thoughts? Could you wear this for a music festival?
Shirt- Aeropostale, Sling on- Roots, Shoes- Keds
4) The Turban and The Jacket
Turns out in the process of switching accessories I never got the opportunity to take off the turban from the look above. However, I am positive that this outfit will still look amazing with or without the turban.
Shoes- H&M, Jacket- Zara, Beads- Handmade with Ankara, Turban- Ankara material, Shades- Ardene (Can’t remember)
5) Warm Spring Day on The Beach
For the love of Sharwama, drop the food S!
Kimono- Aeropostale, Shades- Aldo
So, here is how I styled 1 dress in 5 different ways. If you don’t already have a black dress, go get yourself one.
(Remember, the more simple the design of the dress is, the easier it is to create different looks!)
