A Study in Contrasts

Everything about this outfit was about contrasts of texture. Tulle, leather, lace, jersey—each tending toward soft or structured. This Rodarte for Target dress is dainty but the blazer and boots aren’t so delicate.

I guess this look is sort of 90s-dress-with-combat-boots, but you can lift the chicness of the outfit by incorporating some stylish elements: a platform boot, a tuxedo cut blazer, a slim belt, & some sparkly accessories. What do you think?

Dress: Target, Blazer & Belt: Asos, Boots: Jeffrey Campbell, Necklace: Anthro

Unfortunately, this dress is no longer available (unless you try ebay) but if you want to recreate the look, I think this lace dress by Lucie Lu looks pretty similar.
