Need a dazzling and elegant spring look for a night on the town? Try this look that is guaranteed to turn heads as soon as you walk in the room.
This bright sunshine yellow, Coast Hedda Maxi Dress ($245; johnlewis.com) is a bold, chic occasion piece with contemporary colours and cut. The color alone screams spring in its entirety without having to be a floral print. The asymmetrical silhouette creates a very feminine look with flattering folds and pleats gathered down the bodice, finishing in a deep side slit just above the knee. A subtle concealed zip fastens at one side. The shape is perfect for accentuating or creating an hour glass shape.
This dramatic “one of a kind” 1960s KJL Elizabethan Bib Style Crystal Necklace ($1,450; ruby lane.com) dripping with sparkling rhinestone crystal tear-drop pendants is a dazzling piece of jewelry. The necklace is surrounded with a dark silver tone metal and both round and marquise shaped crystals. This is a great vintage look perfect for playing the role of a movie starlet, even if it’s only in your head. Complementing the dress are a pair of Nina ‘Allyn’ Glamourous Teardrop Earrings ($105; amazon.com). These teardrop earrings are glamorous enough to make a statement, but not so glamorous that they overpower the necklace. Next to a sparkling necklace and earrings a lady always needs the perfect accessory on her wrist for when she is waving to her public and this Diamond in the Rough Iceberg Bangle ($99,000; ahalife.com) is a beautiful choice. This 18k white gold bracelet with a 15.41 carat rough diamond and 16.81 carats of micro pave diamonds will show plenty of sparkle without overpowering the necklace. Also, Right hand rings are perfectly acceptable accessories for elegant evenings and this Diamond Lemon Quartz Empress Teardrop Cocktail Ring ($275; maxandchloe.com) is just the ring you need. The center lemon quartz stone is brought to life in the diamond bezel setting surrounded by sterling silver for the perfect sparkle.
Remember, no great evening look is finished without the perfect clutch and pair of shoes. This Jewel Box Clutch ($100; Mango) provides just the right amount of sparkle and class to this evening attire. This metallic box clutch with rhinestone flowers and embellishments also comes with an optional chain (for when you no longer feel like carrying the clutch in hand), a top clasp fastening and an inner pocket. Finishing off the look are these Christian Louboutin Gwynitta Glitter Open-Toed Sandals in Silver ($745; bergdorfgoodman.com). This sparkling Christian Louboutin sandal is made from fine-grain glittered patent leather with a metallic kid leather trim. Thin straps cross over the toe and ankle. They are a perfect addition to this ensemble with their signature red leather outsole and 4″ heel.
This elegant ensemble will not only make heads turn, but it will make you feel like you have just stepped onto the red carpet. With so many beautiful elements together, you are guaranteed to be the most fashionable woman in the room.
