Outfit of the Week: City Safari

Jesse L. Brooks


Even though summer is usually associated with more colorful clothing, we just can't help but always go back to our favorite go-to hue. A little black dress never goes out of style and can be worn in any season. The best part? All you have to do is change up your accessories to reinvent this staple piece over and over again. The star of our latest outfit is this 'Osman' belted stretch-cotton dress by Acler. This LBD is exactly what you'd want in a going-out ensemble. Crafted from stretch cotton into a tailored, blazer like silhouette, it's designed with an adjustable waist belt and oversized lapels. To max up the summer appeal, we opted for sandals and not just any sandals. These Giuseppe Zanotti showstoppers feature an open toe, a strappy design, buckle fastening, a sleek stiletto heel and contrasting light brown flower appliqués to the front. Getting catty with our bag, this Valentino Garavani tote is dotted with lively, leopard spots, made in Italy from smooth leather with an easy snap closure. A statement bag like this instantly takes the simplicity of the look to the next level.  Our finishing touches include a pair of super chic oversized Gucci sunglasses and a feline flick, using Guerlain's Precision Felt Eyeliner. Even though things are not yet back to "normal," in this look you'll feel like you're on a "City Safari" even from a distance.
