One Trend, Two Generations: Black Crinkled Dress

One Trend, Two Generations: Black Crinkled Dress

Tori, my stepdaughter, and I decided to bring back One Trend, Two Generations to style a new black crinkle dress from Stella Carakasi’s Fall 2017 Collection.

The Mood Board Dress is a far cry from your ordinary black sleeveless dress. It arrives twisted up in a little drawstring bag. The more crinkles the better for this dress, making it perfect for travel.

The fabric is metal voile. You can see tiny strands of silver woven throughout the fabric. Along the hemline, it has mesh inserts which add texture and interest.This dress is lined so no need to wear a slip underneath.

I styled my black crinkled dress for cooler autumn weather by layering it with a long sleeved top. I added a leather wrap belt and wore ankle strap pumps with a block heel.

I wore big black sunglasses and my freshwater pearl and leather wrap bracelet – which can also be worn as a necklace – by Elizabeth Wilmore Designs.

When the temps dip lower this fall, I will wear tall boots with this look and tights with a pair of booties. I think a black wool hat would look great with this outfit as well.

Tori styled her dress with warm brown tones.

She wore tall dark tan boots and gave her look a boho vibe by adding feather earrings. A skinny braided belt finishes off her look.

Tori and I agree, the Stella Carakasi Mood Board Dress is versatile without being boring, easy to travel with, and comfortable. It can be worn casually or dressed up for a dinner date or party and layered for cold weather styling.

There are two Stella Carakasi fashion events happening this week!

Fashion Community Week’s fashion show at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco on September 20, benefiting Dress for Success.

Fourth Street Fashion Show, a free fashion show to benefit the Berkeley Food & Housing Project on September 23

Disclosure: Tori and I were each given a Mood Board Dress from Stella Carakasi to style. All opinions expressed here are my own, as always.

    Of course, I’m biased when I say I love this idea!! Because in a way, it’s like my blog!! And a perfect transition to the Bridging the Gap campaign!!
    What an extremely versatile dress, Adrienne!!
    XOXO

      I am going to miss having Tori here to do these posts with. She graduates from college in December and is moving to Oregon. Thankfully, my Bridging the Gap partner, Mallory of Vineliving, has already become my partner in a similar series – How to Dress in Wine Country at Any Age.
