What To Wear To Just About Anything

dear_andi_black_and_white

Like a true New Yorker and possibly thanks to being in the fashion industry, I’m always gravitating towards anything that comes in black. It just feels more like me and it’s just sooooooooo easy. When I’m dressing models all day, the last thing I want to do is wear anything too fussy for myself and black just goes with everything (yes, even navy and brown!).

I ended up grabbing this dress here and another one in black from the Rag & Bone sample sale recently because a little black dress (or LBD) is timeless and can be worn to just about any occasion, so the cost-per-wear makes it more worth the splurge.

For me, it’s important that I can wear something to work and then dress it up, like I did here for an impromptu party.

STYLIST TIP: When searching for the perfect LBD, look for these 3 things…

1. QUALITY. Fabric and construction is key for your dress and it will automatically look more elegant as a result.

2. FIT. Look for darts sewn into the dress or where everything falls. If the fit isn’t perfect, see if your tailor can make it work.

3. DETAILS. Look for unique details that make your LBD different from everyone else’s LBD, like the mesh panel seen here, or maybe it’s an interesting cut or neckline. Whatever it may be, make sure you feel comfortable in it, as that will make or break your look!
