Saturday nights are made for showing off your style. This past weekend’s dinner-and-drinks plans presented the opportunity to slip on a little black dress and sweep on a smokey eye. The drop-waist dress is part of the design/blogger collaboration Elin Kling for Marciano (can you tell I have a thing for collabs?), and I already can’t wait to wear it again. The V-shaped neck and back plus the flirty flounce skirt make me feel feminine and a little sexy, and petite chevron detail adds a demure touch of texture. To show off the back, I decided to take a cue from girl of the moment, Jennifer Lawrence, and try out the back necklace.
Since I actually had time to spend on makeup, I went for a tried-and-true smokey eye coupled with soft pink lips (always choose one feature to play up and keep the rest toned down). A smudge of silver in the corner of my eyes really makes them pop.
What’s your go-to look for Saturday night?
