To make it clear immediately – when going to a ball, I am mostly working there, so I can’t appear in Alexander McQueen or Elie Saab gowns (unfortunately …would be glorious, but that’s not an adequate style when working).
So my ball outfit is – for sure elegant, but – a bit more functional. #casualchic
La Petite Robe Noire as a TWO-PIECE
I am not into super opulent gowns anyway, so I am THE cocktail dress girl yaaaaaaassss. My favourite is a classic Petite Robe Noire – the little black dress created by Coco Chanel.
This year, transparent looks are very en vogue,
so I chose a little black dress – SUPER TIGHT – for underneath and a transparent, with golden and bronze flowers embroidered cocktail dress over it.
So the dress is actually a two-piece
including the plain black tight dress underneath
and the embroidered transparent one above.
I styled my embroidered black dress with a light beige longcoat. It makes the look more elegant and gives it the needed wow-effect (Red carpet goals, you know this…).
Also, it is out of suede, which is great for the beginning spring time, because it is warm and (kind of) windproof.
Moschino bag & Satin Pumps
I chose black satin pumps with satin flowers on the outsides to stick to the flower theme of the dress itself.
To finish the look, I grabbed my favourite Moschino bag in black with golden details (I am so into it OMG).
As almost always, I put a black choker round my neck.
Dress to impress
This ball look is super elegant, suitable for every occasion, but still functional and easy to wear, because the dress stays, where it should (no nipple gates here, sorry guys!).
It is not an opulent ball gown, right, but therefore you don’t have to think about how your gown’s looking all the time.
With this dress you are DRESSED TO IMPRESS.
And it is all about attitude anyway.
You can really ENJOY your night in this awesome ensemble – hassle-free due to this comfortable, but very elegant outfit.
