When it comes to styling others, I’m ok with pieces that make them feel strong and sexy, but when it comes to myself, I almost always shy away from clothing that is ever overtly sexual.
I’ve never enjoyed using my sexuality in my fashion. I build my outfits around pieces I feel good in, so I rarely use my ‘assets’ as an asset. I’m more comfortable in a turtleneck or high collar which means low-cut tops and figure-hugging dresses never make it off the rack.That all changed when I spied this Isabel Marant LBD. Marant does cool/sexy girl so well and this dress is no exception. Its strong shoulders and relaxed silhouette make it feel almost business-like. And even though it shows some cleavage, I still feel like myself in it.
This dress is more powerful than pretty. It has a lot more attitude than your average little black dress so I wasted no time adding it to my LBD collection. I even found some similar contemporary options here and here. I paired mine with my Hermes Kelly bag and some Gianvitto Rossi sandals, as this dress really inspired me to rock a sexy, but powerfully sophisticated look for a night out in London.
