The not so little black dress

 “Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy — but mysterious. But above all black says this: I don’t bother you — don’t bother me.” —  Yohji Yamamoto

Own at least one not so little black dress, I often tell those interested to listen to my inner stylist. I am firm believer in the not so little black dress, for mostly these two simple reasons: 

1. Versatility - the dress itself maybe simple, but add a few pieces of statement jewelry, a clutch or maybe even a blazer while you are at it and you have yourself a pretty stylish outfit. 

2. Classic - it can be dressed up or dressed down, and classic simply means its chances of going out off style is zero to none. 

No matter your style, a not so little black dress is a staple piece that you need to own period! lets take a look on how Chiko, below styled her dress. 

Chiko, decided on this little number for the fact that its an easy piece to dress up, while keeping black her focal point colour, she still brought it to life with a good use of accessories. 

I honestly do not recall the last time i walked out of the house without a pair of sunglasses, they are one of my go to accessories and I just love how they bring life to an outfit. 

Whenever you are in doubt of what type of bag to pair with your not so little black dress, a clutch is definitely the way to go, now carrying a black one is optional, if you are one who loves color, I am pretty sure a fuchsia one would just be the right pop of colour, or maybe even a vibrant red would do the trick, depending on what really tickles your fancy.  for a metal fix, she added a gold wrist watch and a lovely little silver ring. 

For the shoes Chiko kept it black but with some metallic straps for some style and also some snake skin (not so clear in the picture), well the most important thing here is that she slayed, while keeping her hair short, clean and in a simple pixie cut. 

As always stay blessed.
