I’m back from Italy, and I have a flu. It’s pretty common to catch a cold when traveling abroad, and I was expecting it. Today’s Everyday With an Edge -post will feature wrap dress styles, but not on me. This time, I chose to style up dresses on Polyvore. Doing so, I get to use an abundance of dresses and accessories, and offer you more detailed styles.
Little Black Wrap Dress
Even though it’s getting pretty chilly, I wanted to do a sleeveless style. This classic dress is perfect for casual parties. It’s cute and flattering, but not too revealing. On a chilly day, you can wear a long sleeved lace top under it for extra warmth.
This LBD has a seam at the waist. I don’t know about you, but I like to hide those. For this look, I chose a wider belt with a double buckle. It accentuates the waist, making it appear narrower, and gives the look a cute detail.
The silver buckle dictates the accent color for this look. Silvery tone can be found in jewelry, purse, and even boot heels. I wanted to add small, playful details to this look. The necklace is shaped like the silhouette of a cat, and one of the rings reminds me of the devil’s tail. Both of these pieces have angles in them, so I picked out tights with a star print to go with them. The dress has an angular hem, so every detail goes together.
For footwear I chose knee-high boots. These ones have a platform sole, and silver heels. They’re simple and elegant, so they won’t clash with a statement purse with angular lines of rivets.
Mustard and Black
Red Accents on Polkadots
I’ve never been that big on polkadots, but this dress stood out as I was leafing through wrap dress styles. It has a vintage-vibe, and would be perfect for a rockabella-look.
I paired the dress up with a tulle petticoat. The dress has a circle hem, and trust me, it flies. A floofy petticoat will keep you safe, and adds volume to the dress. I pondered between black and white, but finally chose to go with my fav.
I chose red as an accent color for this look. A round purse and red Mary Janes are a given, but I also wanted to add a red detail to the dress itself. I picked out a red chiffon scarf to tie into the belts. This adds a little splash of color to the dress. Red lips and nails bring even more color to the look along with a red watch.
I wanted to keep jewelry to a minimum with this style. I chose golden studs and simple rings. One of them comes in three layers, and the other has the cutest cat ears!
