Your Little Black Dress 2.0

1.06.2013

The notorious LBD is notorious for a reason: easiest go-to in the world. However, many simply throw on heels, some minimal jewelry and call it a day. While it is plausible that your work is done there, here at Style on the Hill we like to go that extra mile and earn the brownie points with some styling. Here are a few simple get-more-bang-for-your-buck styling tips brought to you by the ever-fabulous-and-fashionable, Alex Moore:

1. Pattern

2. Layering

Let’s be practical, it’s January. Yes, we can easily survive the bitter cold of the night with that trusty alcohol blanket, but walking to campus for an8 a.m., you’re gonna need some fabric on those limbs of yours.

3. Color

Can’t match to save your life? Me neither. I use this trick almost every day to put myself together: Black/Neutral + One Color (my new favorite color of choice: cobalt blue everything.)
