*Checks the calendar* it’s almost summer and that means it’s time to strip away those winter layers! It’s time for brighter hues, flowy dresses, and open-toe sandals. Bold, fun, prints are going to be all the rage coming out o the lockdown this summer. And that’s all fine and great, I am a big fan of maximalism and will be covering it extensively on my blog this summer. But what do you do if you want to keep your dress aesthetic cool and classy? Like say for a date at a museum or a rooftop dinner with drinks (rooftops are going to be open, right?). A white dress and some strategic accessories are going to be your best friends to achieve that classy look. Keep reading to see how to get it:
How to Get A Classy Summer Dress Look:
To get this look, I started with a white dress as my base. A maxi white dress looks good on anyone and it’s a great look for black girls. Our skin just radiates more against white fabric. To accessorize, I went with a classic black gathered clutch bag. It holds all of the evening necessities like your phone and sunglasses and just looks sophisticated. We are talking old school Hollywood glam here. To finish this classy white dress aesthetic, throw on a pair of black heels with a twist. I went for a black & white gingham print that just adds another dimension to this look. Finish off the look with oversized sunglasses to keep a little bit of mystery and lots of golden jewelry – like hoops, bangles and rings. This look is timeless, classy & elegant all in one. Just be prepared to turn heads all night, Gems.
