This week, our ever so stylish Stylists at our Beverly Hills flagship put together a look encompassing two popular trends: minimalism and the cape dress.

With fall here, it’s the perfect opportunity to try something new this season. Keep reading to see how you can take on the cape dress and bring out your wonder woman within.

 

Caped Town Glamour 

 

This week, we’re featuring our Christine cape dress. This truly is a classic style and can easily transition from day to evening. Just switch up your daytime shoulder bag to an evening clutch, add a statement pump and some jewelry and you’re ready for a night on the town.

Of course, every elegant ensemble starts with the right foundation:

The Christine cape dress is a classic sheath silhouette – for a style like this consider a lightly lined bra like our Teresa. The delicate floral lace is a work of art while the lightly lined cups and underwire give you lift and support. Notice the small detail on the adjustable straps and center front bow? Simply irresistible. Add the matching bikini panties for a classic, feminine look.

Step up your shoe game and pair your cape dress with a stunning d’orsay style lace pump like our Eve Lace Pumps. These beauties feature a soft suede lining and subtle platform, giving you an extra oomph. The lace overlay adds the perfect amount of visual interest, keeping the look both lady-like and evening ready.

 

Lastly, don’t forget to add a splash of color to your look! Matte lipstick is as popular as ever and with a neutral palette, go with a statement making red like Red Brick. Our matte lipstick is made with natural ingredients, and feels lighter-than-air. The best part is, it leaves a lovely stain on the lips as it wears.

For a mani that pops, try our signature nail polish in Robyn, a classic cherry red. This formula applies smoothly, giving you saturated color that lasts for days and best of all, it’s 5-free and cruelty-free.
