Personal Style: Birthday Post!

www.stilettosandsubstance.com

Aside from being fabulously decadent occasions when self-indulgence is totally permissible, birthdays are also the perfect excuse to play dress up. Your twenties present the perfect opportunity to showcase your personal style and get away with almost anything, so have fun creating a memorable and unique birthday look for the one day in the year that is guaranteed to be all about you!

The leather material and fashion-forward cut of this black Theory dress put an edgy, irreverent spin on the timeless Little Black Dress. The beauty of a classic piece such the LBD lies in its versatility; you can create different looks depending on how you choose to accessorize it. Whether you pile on the jewels for an OTT look or utilize the power of a single statement piece, the styling possibilities are virtually endless. Here, an oversized white floral statement necklace is the only accessory added to the look. The femininity of the  Chanel-inspired piece juxtaposes with the tough feel of the dress for an ultramodern feel.

Finally, strategic pops of bright colour were added to elevate the black and white colour palette of this outfit and keep the look summer ready. Suede lime heels add a bright burst of colour and textural contrast, and the bright colours on the lips and nails keep this look young and fresh.
