I love this look! It's such a fun one and although it's yet another all black look I think this weeks posts have been a pretty good attempt at sharing just how different a standard all black outfit can become with a few extras. So following on from yesterday, today I'm wearing a skater style dress instead which is a little more fun I think (not so fun when the wind makes it fly up which happened more than once to me); you can basically swap the accessories for a day-to-night look.. Topshop have great basics which can be a little more pricey but worth it because of how long they last, this dress is a good few years old now, I added black booties from H&M and a cute Marc b. bag to complete the look, I also threw on some cat-eye sunnies which work perfectly with my little head.

How would you style a dress casually?

    1. Yes! I do love H&M for basics - I've heard they do some fab Tshirts so I'll be heading there next week as they're currently offering students 20% off! X

  4. You look fabulous in your black Topshop skater dress. To me part of what contributes to the casual or formal look of a skater dress are the season and the accessories. Some converse sneakers, a colourful print vest or a denim jacket, and a crochet or canvas bag would, to me, seem more casual. I love skater skirts and dresses and love how they move in the wind. With respect to "Marilyn moments", being a Lingerista Fblogger, I always think about what lingerie would complement the outfit. I like pairing either white, yellow, orange or lilac with black. To me black seems more formal in Winter than it does in Summer (with the exception of funerals and men's outfits at black tie affairs) when white tends to be more prevalent amongst monochrome outfits.
