Even Better Than A LBD

Isn’t this dress just fabulous? It has such stand-alone personality and presence. The overall shape and length are classic but the flouncy skirt and textured fabrics give it an edge. The color is subdued enough to make it work on an occasion that
might tempt you to play it safe with black, but this hue is so much more interesting. The gray has a fair bit of softening mauve in it, and the ruffles on the skirt incorporate silver and bronze as well.

With so many voluminous ruffles, accessories would need to be kept to a minimum. In terms of jewelry, it would partner well with a thin gold chain or some dangly, but subtle, earrings. For footwear, I would stick to a straightforward, pointed toe pump in a matte finish like suede.
