Nothing evokes mystery and fascination more than a woman in a body-con black dresshigh heels, and dark sunglasses. This look was inspired by the confidence, femininity, and class of European women like Catherine Deneuve or Sophia Lauren, who never overdo it when it comes to dressing. This particular dress has a softness to it because of the lace overlay that keeps it looking more femme fatale than dominatrix. Because it’s really the showstopper, I kept the accessories simple. The shoes (check out those old-school heels) and the bag give the look a timeless, classic vibe, but I could easily imagine the same dress paired with strappy sandals like these to add a pop of color. Here, my pop of color was my go-to red lipstick, which is called “Lady Danger.” Need I say more?
