For an elegant party outfit, Sarah Francke pairs black pumps with a classic white dress. A blush jewel necklace from Francesca's provides a pop of color.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- I've chosen this dress as my go-to holiday party attire mainly for its comfort and versatility. The dress has a classic cut and design, but by alternating accessories I am able to transition it easily from party to party.A white A-line with a black lace trim, it can be dressed up with heels and jewelry or made more casual with flats and a cardigan.My personal style leans conservative, and I like to know that when I buy an outfit I'll be able to wear it for a long time and in many different contexts. This dress is great because it also can be adapted seasonally. Since it is sleeveless, it can be worn year-round by mixing up the layers, adding hosiery or changing footwear.I like pieces that are versatile and easy to transition. For this party look, I have paired it with black tights and pumps for an elegant but still practical cool weather look. For a pop of color, I chose to spend my $25 on a blush jewel necklace from Francesca's.
