Our style contributor for womenswear, Brittany Bathgate, shares her ‘go to’ black dress.
I’ve never been a ‘little black dress’ woman – instead I am a firm believer in everyday black dresses, they are the back bone of my dress collection. Whenever I am in doubt about what to wear to work, 9 times out of 10 I reach for a black dress.
Today I wanted to share with you my new ‘go to’ black dress. The dress in question is from & Other Stories. I originally bought this with the intention to wear it solely for work but I think I’ll definitely be wearing this out of work when the weather gets milder.
When getting dressed for work I’m always faced with the battle of style vs. comfort –this dress ticks both those boxes (and more: roomy, good quality, versatile) making it perfect.
While it might look like a religious habit (minus the veil) it cinches at the waist keeping it feminine and drapes in all the right places and the best part is the subtle open back.
Here I have paired it with my COS oxford lace ups for a go to work outfit and, for a casual spin, sneaker of the moment the Adidas Stan Smith.
Whilst I could waffle on about this dress forever, I wont. Instead I’ll leave you to check out & Other Stories – their spring/summer collection has started to drop and to no surprise I’m lusting after it all.
