Good morning everyone today’s post is about making a statement in a black dress. Now it doesn’t have to be an elaborate dress, a simple long gown like the one I am wearing will do the trick. If you are looking for something that delivers attitude in spades, looking fierce and one that will leave you feeling confident? Well look no further then this long black dress from APUJAN SS20!
Now let me tell you a brief background to APUJAN, it is a London-based womenswear label founded by designer Apu Jan. The label made it’s debut in Autumn/Winter 2013 London Fashion Week. The designs are renowned for integrating pattern and knitwear technique to illustrate themes inspired by fantasy and literature. Now what you can see at the heart of APUJAN’s unique style is the coming together of traditional and oriental elements with a contemporary twist. The interweaving of bold and casual elements have become the hallmarks of the label.
So the inspiration for the designs come from many different places and often are associated with books, space fantasy and imagination of the past. Each season Apu Jan inspired by a list of books creates a story containing his favourite elements, leading us the audience to experience the fantasy world of his imagination.
Right lets begin with this gorgeous black dress, it is a simple dress and what makes it standout and catch your attention is the deep plunging neckline. It also has a thigh slit and is very light, the off the shoulder dress is perfect for a night out or for any special occasion. Simple, elegant and timeless, what more can one ask for?!
So when it came to styling the dress I opted to go for some nude high heel sandals. These are from Steve Madden and I love how they just elongate my legs and let the dress do all the talking. Now by all means if you fancy amping up the colour by going for a bold pair of shoes then do so!
Next and onto my bag of choice which is this vintage cold clutch. I do love to accessories my black dresses with gold, I have also gone for a pair of gold drop earrings too.
Finally I went for the pop of colour with my lipstick. I am wearing the shade Lady Danger from M.A.C, this red lipstick is on the orange side and is perfect for summer in my opinion. So there you have it already to make an evening of it at home! Restaurants have just opened up over here and we ventured out as a family for lunch the other day. It was a little surreal to say the least, but the boys were extremely happy to be out! So next time it will be date night for hubby and I.
