Sometimes all it takes to turn a classic silhouette into something decidedly more modern is the detail. Case in point: this Good American dress. While ribbed dresses have been around for aeons this style feels decidedly more edgy with the in-built corset detail. I like the fact it helps give the dress an added element of interest but it doesn’t overwhelm. I think a dress like this is something that you can have in your closet to wear for various occasions. It can be dressed up for an event, or worn back with sneakers for an elevated off duty look. Plus the neutral hue makes it really versatile, and easy to dress up or down. In this instance I styled it in a dressy way, making for the ideal understated dress option for an occasion.
Working with neutral hues when it comes to your outfit opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to accessorising. For this look, I went with the latest addition to my bag collection, this tiny structured Apede Mod bag. The chunky chain handle dresses it up, but also makes it the bag ultra practical as it can then be worn crossbody style. To pick up the gold in the handle, I went for chunky gold statement earrings, and a pair of fun cat-eye Poppy Lissiman sunglasses to finish off the look.
