dailylook LBD spring style challenge

While browsing through DailyLook's Little Black Dress collection, I was inspired to do a little LBD spring style challenge to style my favourite LBD from the collection. So, I picked out the Cross-back Skater Dress which has a cute cut out at the back as well. I went monochrome and a bit towards the preppy side with oxfords and a satchel but chucks and a backpack would do as well. 

I added a comfy crochet cardigan because you never know when it might get cold! You could always switch it up to a blazer if you think that would fit the style more but I like being cozy and comfy so I opted for a cardigan. 

For shoes, I chose oxfords because they give off a smart and preppy look so it plays with the casualness of the dress to make it look a bit sharper. Plus, the satchel bag also does its part as an accessory to make the outfit fun and playful. 

If you're wondering what to wear underneath, I'd say to opt for a simple bra or bralette with sufficient padding to give the dress shape and so that the back strap can remain well hidden under the cross over part of the dress. You don't want your bra straps to be peeking out from the cutouts, do you?

Other accessories I used was a little dangly necklace to add more details to the dress and a classic vintage leather looking watch. The watch is definitely looking very versatile to mix and match with all kinds of looks. 

So, what do you think? All the items here can be found on dailylook.com so do check them out for more adorable pieces.
