The dress: Rory Beca ($265) at Shop Bop
Think s-h-o-r-t for this fall. Dresses are more sculpted and sophisticated (which means ditch the babydoll minis). I really dig this jewel toned purple, too.
The necklace: Kenneth Jay Lane ($39.99—on sale!) at Blue Fly
Forget the silver and the pendants, bring on the gold and the BIG jewelry!
The shoe: Brian Atwood ($525) at Saks Fifth Avenue
Remember: keep it neutral (balance out a bold dress and jewelry with a simpler bottom half) and keep it high (about 4 inches).
The tights: Wolford ($65) at Neiman Marcus
Black tights are a ubiquitous look from the runway this fall, and they must be completely opaque (sheer just doesn’t cut it).
