Hey cuties! The weather's cooling off and we're not quite ready to stop wearing our summer dresses. So we've put together a little ✨OOTD✨ for you to get inspiration from!
Bag: Neva Opet Lisette Tote (only one available!)
The centerpiece of this outfit is the looser fitting Love Buzz mini from slow fashion brand The Handloom. It's a lovely handwoven thick cotton item with long adjustable shoulder ties that add a feminine look to its otherwise boxy silhouette. And it has pockets!
Underneath it, we wanted a fitted contrasting long sleeve top with a higher neckline. We decided on this Heimious tee - it's *deliciously* soft, made of modal which is a breathable natural fabric with 6%spandex for the extra stretchiness. If going out at night, we'd recommend throwing on some leg warmers, tights and a big knitted cardigan like this one to keep warm!
To accessorize, we picked the handmade Neva Opet Lisette bag to stick within the black&white theme. Unfortunately, Neva Opet is no longer in business, so this is the last chance to grab one of their wonderfully made items. In keeping with the high contrast theme of the outfit, we added mixed metal pieces from Dennis Higgins. The solid colors leave room for chunkier statement jewels to shine, so don't be afraid to go big!
You can repeat this formula with other dresses as well! Turtlenecks in particular are amazing for wearing under dresses. Try this top under this big bow mini as pictured below.
