As I talked about in my guide on looking elegant in a shift dress lately I've been all about the fancy wear, and for today's outfit inspiration I'm sticking with that. To change the black tie formal dress look up a bit I decided to go with a laser cut piece. Normally this is the sort of trend you see in a club, but I was wanted to bring it into a less sexual and fast pace outfit, and found the perfect pieces to rock the trend.
- Dress - There are a lot of different ways do do a laser print (I wore a top with this effect almost a year ago) but for this trend I wanted to make sure that it was the traditional perforated look. I love the exposed midriff and high low effect of the skirt, and the shape of this laser cut dress which can give any girl curves.
- Clutch - Whenever I have an all black outfit I like to go with an accessory that really pops. This color block clutch with pinks and reds and gold hardware, is young but still chic. For sure a piece to pair with multiple outfits.
- Shoes - Mary Janes can look a bit dated, but add in an extra piece across the front and a pointed to and you've got a pair of shoes that look modern without being too harsh and high fashion looking.
