Dressing For Date Night

Dress c/o Theory/ Jacket Armani Exchange (old, love this one)/ Heels Jimmy Choo/ Purse Stella McCartney/ Lipstick Bare Minerals

I recently collaborated with Theory to launch their spring collection and was excited to style one of my favorite pieces. I love this particular dress because the ikat print is really fun, but the black and white colors keep it chic and refined. Theory always makes great classic staples for your wardrobe with this one as no exception. I always find that the perfect date dress is one that is both effortless and put together (you never want to look like you are trying too hard!) I downplayed the dress by adding an old military style jacket that I’ve had for years and year, but I think a leather moto jacket would look awesome as well.

I have a similar ikat print dress from Topshop. I am going to style it similarly to this outfit- that dress is proving much more versatile then I thought!

Very chic and congrats on the Theory gig!
