The Dress and The Rest: Ladylike Looks

Trends come and go, but one fashion staple never goes out of style — the dress. This timeless silhouette is favored year after year, season after season. This fall, pair flawless lines and feminine details with chic accessories for a classic look.

The Dress: In rich allspice ponte knit, this Antonio Melani Navey dress is an excellent alternative to basic black. The silhouette hugs your curves and hides problem areas with a box-pleated peplum. Contoured seaming, a rounded V-neck and effortless cap sleeves ensure a classic, uncomplicated fit.

The Rest: The clean lines of this stunning dress call for  jewelry that accents the dress without taking away from it. From the kate spade new york Bright Spot collection, this necklace adds a touch of sparkle and shine with a crystal-encrusted pendant. Bring the glimmer to your ears with the matching stud earrings. The Red Magma ring from Glitterings gives you a statement piece in coordinating and cutting-edge red magma crystal rocks. Complete the look with luxurious burgundy suede pumps from Steve Madden and a fresh, feminine fragrance like Chloe.

The Dress: Simple yet stunning, this knit dress from Vince Camuto is a versatile day-to-evening piece. A unique draped crossover detail at the waist flatters your curves, while a V-back and exposed back zipper add modern edge.

The Rest: The Nora clutch from Vince Camuto is luxe and sleek with deceptively simple black and goldtone accents. Real fur and leather ensure vintage glam. Continue the sophistication with Elvin booties from Vince Camuto in soft suede and fierce glossy croco leather. Crystal stud hoop earrings from R.J. Graziano accent the goldtone hardware of the Nora clutch, keeping the look modern. Add a nude lipstick, like Dior Rouge Dior Nude in Twill, to balance the fiery red of your dress.

The Dress: Allover favela red lace makes a sultry statement in this Lizzie lace dress from French Connection. Contrasting white lining and simple construction make a pretty picture.

The Rest: From Roberta Chiarella, a statement necklace in turquoise stones splashes color into your wardrobe and emboldens this look. Pull it all together with the Thea chain tassel box clutch from BCBGMAXAZRIA in textured teal. The Geen pump from Guess is sophisticated in a sky-high heel yet doesn’t detract with its natural color. A rosy, feminine blush goes well with this ladylike lace dress. We like the Guerlain Rose Aux Joues blush duo in Golden High.
