The holidays are quickly approaching, which has me thinking a lot about what I will be wearing come New Years Eve. I’m not sure about you, but this year on New Year’s Eve, I’ll be enjoying a 10-course degustation with some of the people that I love the most. Lately, more than anything, I’ve been drawn to simple silhouettes, worn with over-the-top embellished jewels paired with some killer heels and gorgeous clutch. This particular aesthetic could not be more evident in the Belle de noir inspired theme I came across on Matches Fashion, which served heavily as inspiration while I browsed the site.
For me, it’s not necessarily always about finding the perfect party dress, as I quite often find myself drawn to separates, and in particular, ones that can be worn above and beyond their initial purpose. This is exactly what the DvF pascale skirt embodies for me, essentially a blank canvas that complements whatever it is paired with, be it a silk peplum top or a fitted lace top. The opportunities to play with varying midnight and black-hued fabrics of differing textures is sort of well, endless. Like pairing a lace dress with a boucle jacket or coat. Subtle yet elegant – will you be going for the “belle de noir” look this New Year’s Eve?
