A little black dress is a mainstay in my wardrobe for its versatility and practicality but rest assured an LBD doesn’t have to be boring. I loved this TOME dress because of its one-shoulder neckline and also its plissé fabric. The pleating elevates the look and gives it touch of understated elegance. I think there’s no better pairing than a classic black evening dress and striking gold accessories and this Eddie Borgo choker gives an otherwise demure look a slightly tough edge. I think the outfit needed an strong anchor point – something a little more solid than stilettos – so I chose to go with a pair of Givenchy cut-out ankle boots instead. A black clutch would have have been a little too match-matchy so I opted for a white Chanel clutch to add a pop of colour to the look. Further proof that you can never go wrong with a little black dress.
