The lovely people at Karen Klein recently sent me a beautiful, modern and versatile little black dress that is perfect for both my taste in fashion and my lifestyle.
Karen Klein’s fashions are wearable and comfortable without ever sacrificing style and beauty. And they’re made in the U.S.A.!
The Gathered Dress has 3/4 sleeves, a gathered waist on the left side, and an asymmetric hemline. I love the scoop neck which is not too deep and shows just enough of my décolletage.
The soft material, made with rayon and nylon and a touch of spandex, means I stay comfortable all day and it’s hand-washable. This dress can be worn casually or dressed up for a night on the town, as you’re about to see – I have styled the Karen Klein Gathered Dress six ways!
The first time I wore the dress was on a recent blogger trip to Santa Barbara Wine Country, which I’ll be telling you about in a future post.
I styled it with a leather choker, black tights and low-heeled black suede booties for our first dinner of the weekend.
For a more dressed up look, I styled the little black dress with black block-heel pumps with ankle straps and a Louis Vuitton clutch.
My casual look starts with the same outfit I wore in Santa Barbara Wine Country. I added a faded denim jacket, cuff bracelet and carried my black Adora bag.
I decided I wanted an outfit with a pop of color so I tied a new-to-me Hermès scarf, a gift from my thoughtful and kind Parisian friend, around my neck. I just adore the vibrant colors! I can’t wait to wear it more often once spring arrives. I also carried my Louis Vuitton Monogram Beverly GM, a 45th birthday gift from husband, purchased in Paris several years ago.
For a more dressed up daytime look, I topped my dress with a duster in a pretty green shade (same duster in khaki) and some tall black boots. A couple of long necklaces – layered – add interest and texture.
We are making up for our four-year drought here in Northern California, thankfully! I love rain and am thrilled to be making use of my umbrella collection.
My versatile little black dress by Karen Klein is a garment I will reach for again and again for it’s fantastic quality and fit, comfort and modern cut. It also comes in a beautiful charcoal gray color.
Shop the Karen Klein collection on their website. They also have beautiful and wearable tunics, vests, pants, skirts and jackets.
