When it comes to New Year’s Eve outfits, I’m a less-is-more kind of person. Sure, it may be fun to wear a crazy sequined-feathered-tulle creation while clinking champagne glasses and waiting for the clock to strike midnight, but when are you going to wear a dress like that again? I prefer picking an outfit that has plenty of rewearability and can easily be transformed with a few different accessories.
That’s why I have my eye on this sexy LBD from Zara. The cut of the dress and faux-leather back gives it just enough detailing to keep things interesting, but the fact that it’s an LBD means you’ll be able to whip it out for cocktail parties and other events time and time again.
The front of the dress features a fold-over tuxedo-style lapel and a thick belt to cinch the waist. I love the triangle cutouts on the top and bottom of the dress. It gives it an edgy, modern feel. The faux-leather skirt panel on the back of the dress feels luxe and again, adds an element of surprise to an otherwise standard dress.
With a dress like this, I favour minimalist jewellery. Perhaps, a single-strand necklace, architectural cuff, and a few simple rings. Show off the strapless feature of the dress by going strapless with your purse as well—get a shiny hard clutch bag. Simple black pumps is all you need, but if you’ve got an awesome pair of heels to show off, an LBD truly dues let accessories shine.
The Faux-Leather Combination Dress is available at Zara for $139.
