As I recently mentioned, I’m interested in playing more with proportions in my wardrobe. That’s part of the reason why I snagged this little black H&M dress. While it isn’t overly exaggerated in its length, the just-below-the-knee hemline is longer than I typically go for. But because it’s so slim and slinky, it doesn’t read matronly. The racerback-style neckline also scored serious cool points with me.
I purchased this dress with evening in mind, but when paired with a denim jacket, felt hat and chunky-heeled boots, it totally works for daytime as well.
Speaking of which, if you follow Faux Fancy on Snapchat (ID: FauxFancy), you might have seen my unboxing of these bad boys. I was looking for a closed toe bootie that was dressy enough for evening and comfortable enough to go all night in. And these more than do the trick.
