With the onset of fall comes cooler weather and many more social occasions. Now through New Years the number of occasions to wear my little black dresses increases dramatically. Dressing for evenings out on the town require a bit of advance planning. This year my LBD du jour is from Alexander Wang. The Alexander Wang Spider lace bandage dress ($775 at Net-a-Porter) has cocktail party style wrapped up with an asymmetric shoulder and bandage style detailing. The dress is super stretchy and body hugging as well. I’m going to need to do a few extra sessions of Pilates to look great in this dress! A spectacular black clutch is required for this Alexander Wang dress.
The Michael Kors Python Bracelet Clutch (upper right, $995 at MichaelKors.com) would add a bit of golden glow and make this look really special. The cuff bracelet is a unique accent to this python clutch. The bracelet clutch a fantastic conversation opener and there is no way I can loose this bag with it attached to my wrist. From Donna Karan, the Zipped Leather Shoulder Clutch, (middle right, $895 at Net-a-Porter) is embellished with silver-tone zippers. It comes with a detachable silver-tone chain handle to convert to a shoulder bag, although I prefer it as a clutch style. I love the texture of the zippers against the grain of the black leather. From Kooba, the Mandy Clutch in Black Patent (bottom right, $201 at RevolveClothing.com) would perfectly complement the asymmetric style of the Alexander Wang dress with its asymmetric zipper accent. Lastly, Dior’s classic Lady Dior Large Clutch (bottom left, $1,090.00 at Saks.com) would add a touch of ‘charm’ to my LBD. The quilted lambskin is as soft as butter and this clutch would work nicely for daytime looks as well.
