I’m no stranger to jewel tones and I immediately gravitated toward this dress when I stepped into Trina Turk! She is a pro at colors and patterns, so I often find something to take home (like this notorious hot pink jumpsuit I shared last summer)! The great thing about a black floral is that it works for formal events, as well as transitioning between Winter and Spring. Black is a naturally elegant/formal color, but the bright floral brings out my personality and compliments my skin tone!
The shift dress is a great, classic shape for any season or event, as well. I love that this shift dress has a collar (a jeweled one at that!) and structured shoulders, which both suit my body shape. A jeweled collar means that I can be lazy and skip trying to coordinate jewelry (or a necklace at least). 😉 I busted out these stunning glitter heels in red from Charming Charlie to effortlessly compliment this bright floral! (Sadly, the heels are sold out and I’m so bummed that I didn’t buy them in black!) The shape of this dress, closed-toe heels, and thick-framed glasses really came together for a chic, smart look!
