little black dress X red accents

Not your every day kind of outfit. There is something so captivating about an ultra simple design paired with a unique accessory. I was instantly drawn to this basic black dress, since it’s chic, it’s timeless and it’s so versatile (it pairs great with a pair of skinny jeans and a statement belt).

The red accessories take this look to the next level, making it a complete head turner. A truly French chic outfit that hits all the marks that makes an outfit French:

  1. less is more
  2. mid-heels are indeed chic!
  3. leave the accessories to a minimal
  4. stick with your signature item / color
  5. add one alluring piece

This gorgeous hat is made by Ignatius Hats in Petersburg, Virginia. I find the design and execution absolutely incredible. Such a chic and feminine hat that makes a statement and it is a truly classic piece. You can find a whole lot more options HERE. If you are a Hampton Roads local, visit French Twist for new arrivals.
