One thing that begins to happen as we move into spring and summer is that my social calendar starts to fill up. I don’t know if other places are like this, but I feel like when it’s cold and dark during the winter, everyone hibernates! (Or the things we do are cozier and more intimate and require nothing more than a sweater and jeans.)
I’m thinking ahead to when I’ll need to pull out a perfect dress for something. I prefer to have a few on hand versus stressing the week before to shop. The minute I saw this one online, I knew I had to have it. The fringe detailing caught my eye and the $100 price tag sealed the deal.
Normally I’d shy away from something as trendy as fringe (like pom poms/tassels), but the black fringe on the white dress seems elevated and chic. It’s also super flattering and– most importantly– easy to wear.
Because I wanted the fringe to be the statement, I opted for a simple pair of chunky heels (on sale!) and a foldover clutch (only $25!). All black or all white can be boring and sometimes black and white together can look a little cheesy, but I think this whole thing works well. While you could definitely mix in some color, you don’t really have to stray from the classic black accessories.
Isn’t the little touch of eyelet between the fringe fun?
And the final touch? A pair of these crazy popular drop earrings.
