1 Style, 3 Ways: Fall’s Little Black Dress

Enjoy these last few weeks of relaxation – when fall hits, it’s on to a jam-packed agenda (we’re so ready). One way to make that hectic schedule a bit more manageable? A do-it-all LBD that works with everything from concerts to fall weddings. All you need is three pairs of shoes and a few extra baubles.

1 Style, 3 Ways: LBD

For a Concert
Outdoor concert season hasn’t packed up just yet. This jersey number is super comfy and can be dressed down. Try sparkly taupe booties, a jean jacket, and simple gold jewelry. You’ll be ready to rock straight through autumn.

For Fall Weddings
An LBD is always a wedding go-to. But this one’s delicate pleating and waist-cinching silhouette take it up a notch. The 3/4-length sleeves protect against chilly breezes for that outdoor cocktail hour, and you can easily add tights for extra warmth. Pair it with metallic gold pumps and a sparkly statement necklace. Then bring on that photo booth.

For the Office
You’re sitting. You’re standing. You’re walking from meeting to meeting. That outfit? It needs to be able to handle it all. And this wrinkle-resistant dress is exactly right for the job. Slip on a pair of burgundy suede pumps, some opaque tights, and a statement watch. Looking polished from 9 to 5 is totally doable.
