elegant in cozy knit
It’s time to take a break from ultra trendy outfits like this one HERE and get back to the roots. I’ve been going back to Dezzal over and over again. Since I tried on this dress for the first time, I knew I was hooked. Whether it’s a sweater like this one HERE, a knit dress such as this red midi dress HERE or an ultra feminine lace dress HERE, Dezzal has been delivering its promises. Their pieces are true to size, the quality is just as it is described and look at the designs! I find their sets and dresses outstanding: the perfect balance between trendy / unique and classic.
The set I am featuring today is designed by Joy & Joso. It is made out of a blend of wool, viscose, polyester and acrylic. The fabric feels soft and it has great substance. The striped cape top has a boxy design while the pencil skirt is curve hugging. The belt comes with the set, and this look is also available in green HERE. I find this outfit timeless and appropriate for many occasions; a classy, simple and ladylike pairing that will never go out of style and the price tag is reasonable too ($160). Note: Dezzal ships free on $59+ orders.
And now onto the accessories! Since the top steals the show, I wanted to keep the rest of the look minimal, hence the nude pumps and no necklace. I opted for a pair of ornamental earrings in topaz, smokey grey, and milky white hues. The neutral colors add to the elegance, while the size of the earrings are just enough to add a hint of boldness and elevate the outfit out of the everyday look.
The silver ring is my most recent find from a long time local jewelry store, BeJeweled. This piece is part of their Sarda Collection, made in Indonesia. The detail work is impeccable and I love the deep red hue of the garnet that changes the depth of color depending on how the Sun hits it. If you are a Hampton Roads local, I recommend for you to visit the store at Hilltop in Virginia Beach. If you are not from the area, then check out their huge selection in their online store, HERE.
