I have a question for the fashion sages here: What is the scoop on wearing several delicate necklaces like the woman in this picture? To me, this particular dress would look better without necklaces (or a single, bolder one) but I would guess she always wears one, some, or all of these trinkets.
Iâ€™ve always forgone every-day jewelry (even a wedding ring!) because I am particular about accessorizing “just right.” So Iâ€™m curious: Have I been fretting over nothing? Or, can one â€“ say, gold-cross-on-a-chain, really ruin the styling of an outfit that doesnâ€™t necessarily call for such an accessory?
P.S. I love the dress. The color looks great with her tan! Love the shoes too!
Lilith or Jennifer – re: your comment on accessories – this look harkens towards ladies tennis – they put so much effort towards a “new” look for every big slam tournament – only to seemingly junk it up w/ tic tac jewelry or outrageous other junk/accessories. Sharapova always has a cross chain and long gold earrings – and the William sisters – don’t get me started. For every day – I watch it – but I don’t edit my wedding ring as it is plain enough (but I have considered it)….
What I really love about this look is that she’s got casual hair, little make-up and bare legs (which happen to be gorgeous). It really balances the dress which would too frou-frou with if she was too polished.
Usually I really like the stuff you post but this is not working for me. The huge puffy sleeves seem to overpower the super short sheath of the rest of the dress giving it a really top-heavy look. Love the colour though.
the dress is a little weird…but it’s growing on me. i think the whole look would be better if she got rid of the jewelry and chose to forgo carrying a bag altogether…although i realize this is not a practical solution…i guess what i’m saying is- the sleeves are two accessories which can’t tolerate competition.
I love layered gold necklaces – they add individuality to an outfit and its a fun way to twist wearing some really classic pieces. I love to layer anything with my grandmother gold wedding ring on a chain…
That’s l’uomo Vogue’s Anna Dello Russo. And for those who commented that they liked the dress, but not the sleeves: that dress IS the sleeves! The sleeves are what make it so amazing and fashion-forward in terms of proportion. Without the oversized sleeves, it’s just a basic sheath. It’s not a look for everyone, but like the Prada satin ultra-mini she was pictured in here before, Anna wears it well!
Anna has the best legs and she knows how to work them!
I LOVE this picture sart it is stunning!! The Alaia shoes in that tan shade compliments her Stella McCartney dress and Bottega bag.. (noticed that I mentioned all the brands) I wonder what her everyday style is like. :D
oh the great necklace debate…I feel like some women can pull off wearing the same necklace(s) everyday and it can look “put together” with any outfit. I am not one of those women. Wish I was although I just can’t seem to be satisfied unless I am wearing what accessorizes best with what I am wearing that particular day…whether it’s one bold necklace, 3 delicate chains, or nothing at all.
I like this dress a lot – but in any other more drab color I don’t think it would work. It almost looks like something one could sew up themselves – simple – yet probably quite complex. I am going to check the Stella collection right now…
