Winter 2009 Lookbook: The Art of Embellishment

December 17th, 2009

Pictured: Frill Stripe Tunic Dress | $80 at Topshop, Alexander Wang Moto Jacket with Detachable Sleeves | $825 at La Garconne, Ankle Leggings | $24 at Topshop, Black Leather Art Deco Beaded Sequin Clutch | $76.49 at ASOS, Embellished Velvet Flats | $19.80 at Forever 21.

How do you dress up plain black and white?  It’s simple really - just add embellishment and texture!  You’ll be amazed at how glamourous basics can look with a little bit of shine.  Here’s how to get the black and white, yet strikingly embellished look:

1. Start with black and white basics: a body conscious black and white striped sweaterdress and simple black ankle leggings.
2. Add a touch of edge with a well cut motorcycle jacket, also in black.
3. Spice up the look with a pair of embellished velvet flats (for both embellishment AND texture) and a striking silver beaded sequinned clutch.  With these statement accessories, you can take a daytime look well into evening.

How would you wear the embellished look?

    I wore a very similar ensemble over the weekend … but minus the embellished flats. I’m sure I would’ve looked far more polished with that dash of sparkle!

    I love the flats. I had my eyes on a pair in gold. Difficult to wear in the winter, but still really great.
