Jennifer selected this simple mid-length black dress for her all day look for 2 reasons:
1. The colour black will look great with almost anything.
2. Due to the simplicity of the dress, it is very versatile. Therefore, in terms of creativity you have a lot of options.
For the morning look Jennifer put a lace top over the dress to make it more appropriate for the day. It appears that she is wearing a lace top with a skirt when it in fact a dress. She wore a poncho over the ensemble to add texture and another layer to the look. She is warm and ready for the day ahead.
By simply changing the top layer of the dress Jennifer has a completely different look. Even more important, the busy girl on the run has saved a lot of time in doing so. She added this double-breasted blazer that she bought while visiting London during the Olympics last year. The blazer is an essential piece because it is versatile like the dress (very British) and a timeless classic in the world of style. She also added the scarf she purchased in Paris that has typography on it which adds an artistic element to the daytime outfit. She has accessorized the ensemble with spectacles.
The rule for the evening is always: “keep it simple.” Sometimes less is more. The black and gold lace jacket that includes bold shoulder pads, perfectly complements the dress. Jennifer accessorized the look with a chained mini purse in which she keeps her bright red lipstick and cell phone. The simplicity of the outfit matches her accessories and just goes to show that you don’t always have to carry a big purse with you everywhere you go. Jennifer has easily taken a simple black elegant dress from morning to night, and is now ready for a night out on the town.
