So your cousin is having a reception for her new bundle of joy and your friend is hosting a formal dinner to celebrate her engagement/promotion. I know the first thing that comes to mind is your plain little black dress, and of course it fits oh-so-elegantly. But how about investing in something different and new? We have picked out the proper looks for such event that won’t make you look over-the-top or underdressed. And since we’re going for elegant, stay away from too trendy pieces and think simple shapes in rich or neutral colors.
Our top selected piece is this stunning Erdem long puff sleeved dress with mustard yellow floral prints and delicate lace inserts (1,049 KD). Pair it with simple patent black platform pumps and a small Devi Kroell clutch.
A neutral colored dress is not negative, and it doesn’t have to be basic. Accessorize this cap sleeves dress with cute little pocket detail by Behnaz Sarafpour (729 KD) with a statement necklace and towering heels to give the right effect.
