Consider a trapeze dress an all-year-round wardrobe staple. This silhouette can go casual or dressy and you’re guaranteed comfort while wearing it. Over the weekend I broke out this rust trapeze dress during a neighborhood stroll with family friends.
This Stretch Knit Trapeze Dress from Forever 21 is only $14.90! Available in black, gray and rust, I went for the rust in spirit of fall. I find this hue rather versatile as it pairs nicely with brown or black accents. For this occasion I mixed in a little bit of both, toting around a cognac fringe backpack and rocking multicolored open toe booties. I adorned myself with jewelry to give the look some character. Specifically a cobalt blue necklace and a dainty knuckle ring that I received in this month’s Rocksbox. Again, one of the easiest ways to create pop is to work with complimentary colors (e.g. orange and blue).
If you’re on the fence about adding a backpack to your collection of handbags, keep this in mind. This backpack is suitable for a variety of activities and you’re guaranteed a ton of compliments. In the past week or so, I’ve used it: to carry my belongings while biking over the Golden Gate Bridge, as a grocery bag, and of course as a good ol’ purse. Where were fringe backpacks when I was in school and desperately needed one for my books?!
