LBD: Day to Night

StyleShannon GuerreroComment



I love a good versatile dress.  I found this cute lbd at forever 21.  I had been looking for a knee length fitted dress and this one is perfect.  It’s lightweight and super comfy.  I was pretty skeptical when I first looked at the dress for two reasons.  One, it’s jersey knit.  Need I say more?  Jersey knit has a tendency to be a little unflattering for curves hugging all the wrong places.  Two, I’m a petite person standing at only 5’1”.  I’ve never really purchased any skirts or dresses that are knee length for fear that they would make me look even shorter than I am. I think this proved my fears wrong.


Going from day to night is really fairly simple, especially with a simple black dress like this.  For an easy day look you can go with a chambray shirt or flannel around your waist and so cute sneakers.  To go from casual to dressy, just add heels, a nice jacket and a great lipstick.  I was going to go with my typical black moto leather jacket, but in the spirit of spring, I went with this awesome blush moto, also from Forever 21.  And my favorite dress up rule, add a statement necklace to finish your look.
