From brunch with the girls to last-minute dates, our wardrobe calls for versatility. But since we don’t always have time to run home and change, we need a piece that goes from day to night with the switch of a stiletto. Enter: the LBD. Here, Rue stylist Lindsay pulls together two incredibly tailored looks using the essential never-fail little black dress from French Connection.
“Give the dress colorblock appeal by layering a cozy sweater and colorful scarf during the day. Keep the shoes comfortable (and cute, of course) for walking – and a carry-all tote is a must.”
“Swap out the sweater for a structured blazer, and lengthen legs with a pair of killer pumps. An envelope clutch and chunky jewelry lend an edgy finishing touch to this after-hours look. The wardrobe change will be our little secret.”
