Fashion Must Have: The Frill-Sleeved Dress

Hi hi bbs! πŸ’‹

Summer is (almost😩) over and I'm already on the hunt for the hottest transition pieces that you can still rock before Labor Day and right into the breezier months of fall. My most recent find is a version of the LBD every doll needs: the frill-sleeved dress.

This little number is straight off the racks at ZARA and I'm in L❀️VE with the cut, the fun sleeve detailing and the dress' chic versatility. I just recently slipped this on when I was headed to brunch but originally purchased it for a cocktail event celebrating the unveiling of the city's first volume of the Achievements in Black Austin book, which I'm featured in!πŸ™‹πŸΎ Purchase a copy of the book for yourself here. To be real: this dress is a buildable style staple worth its affordable price point (only $50!). Keep scrolling to get the scoop on why you need this dress RN.

LBD LONGEVITY
There's no such thing as too many little black dresses in your closet, so scooping this lil baby is definitely justified.  And due to the frock's flirty sleeves, slightly sexy v neck and relaxed A line cut, you can rock this dress:

  1. On a date night
  2. To an after 5 p.m. event
  3. To lunch with the ladies
  4. On a night out 
  5. Anywhere you feel like feelin' cute

ALL THE ACCESSORIES
The beauty of a LBD is that accessories can be as simple or as spicy as you want them to be. Despite the 100ΒΊ weather that was being v disrespectful during this shoot, I can never pass up the opportunity to stunt in all black everything. If you're a gal who loves color, add a bright yellow bag and strap on some floral print heeled sandals for some sweet Wild Thoughts vibes.πŸ’ƒπŸΎ If black isn't your color (slightly judging you TBH), opt for this same dress in a fiery red or a bright green.
