This is how I take an almost sheer LBD to work. Opaque tights are a must, and instead of classic pumps, I threw on ankle boots. It was my first time doing an ankle boot with a dress in the office, but since I had no meetings, it went over.
You may have noticed that I wear a lot of black…in fact, to date, all black…in my Worker V posts. That’s because my base color is black, inside the office and out. I’ve found that black is a safe way to push office style boundaries a little. Can you imagine the dress below in red? It wouldn’t work. It’s almost too short for the office, but the black-on-black disguises it. Red—or any other color—would highlight the shorter length, and even with black tights, it would probably be too short.
The faux fur vest was perfect for a rainy, 65-degree day…and even with the rain, I am rejoicing about the fact that there won’t be any more 90+ degree days this year. After hours, I’ve worn this dress with black over-the-knee (OTK) boots, bare legs, and wild hair. I’m thinking it will also look sensational with my purple OTK boots (from WVW: Purple Reign). Stay tuned.
