HOW TO STYLE A KAREN MILLEN IVORY DRESS

Good morning everyone, continuing on with my third Valentines day outfit inspiration. This one is based around this ivory mini dress which is from Karen Millen. Personally I love to wear little white/ivory dresses for a night out. What drew me to this dress was the detailing around the neck area, this just elevates the dress. A white/ivory dress is timelessly stylish and chic and one that most of us can pull off. If it is a bit too bland for you there are many ways to inject some colour by using accessories to do so.

IVORY DRESS

So lets begin with this ivory Karen Millen mini dress. Simple yet very eye catching, perfect for a night out. Like I mentioned earlier I was drawn to this dress by the embellished chain details around the neck and side of the dress. The dress comes in an a-line style and falls just above my knees. I just adore the simplicity of the dress and how it has been elevated by the embellishment.

WHITE SHOES

Moving on I was contemplating weather I should go for red shoes or white ones. After much deliberations…oh the struggles of styling an outfit! Come on you know you’ve been there too. I decided to go with the white ones on this occasion and told myself that next time I would wear the red pair. These gorgeous white pointed court shoes are from Dune London and they exude timeless glamour. They come in a classic silhouette with a transparent trim detail. Complete with a slim high heel and a Dune brand stud trim on the sole. I must say I do love a white on white look!

GOLD BAG

Next and onto my bag, here I have opted for this gold glittering one to break up the white/ivory a little and give the overall look some shimmer. This cute little shoulder bag is from none other than Karen Millen. The bag is just the perfect size for all my essentials for a night out.

FINISHING TOUCHES

Finally for the finishing touches, first up is my statement sunglasses which are from Carrera. This white pair has a red trim at the front and is in the oversized aviator style. As for my makeup I chose to wear a bold red lip to inject some pop of colour. Here I am wearing the shade Feels So Grand in the Retro Matte Lip colour by M.A.C. Such an intense red which goes rather well with my skin tone. Last but not least to complete my look I am wearing my rose gold watch from Filippo Loreti. So there you have it my complete monochromatic look for Valentines Day.
