Cobalt blue is the new black for the fall season, and I've been in love with this long gown by ASOS for quite some time now. Believe it or not, I've had this dress hanging in my closet but haven't found the right event to wear it to. It's perfect to bust out for a date night or special event.
The thigh high slit adds a really seductive aspect to the dress, without going over the top. Its high neckline keeps the overall look of it classy and elegant paired with a strappy heel. These particular heels are by Steve Madden, and I absolutely love the style of these shoes!
The back of this dress is what makes it the ultimate date night look, as its deep plunge extends to the lower back to balance everything out while maintaining elegance. A metal belt could be added for a strong addition, but I wanted to keep it simple and focus on the dress for this particular pairing.
Exposed midsections have been raging for the past few seasons, and an ab-flashing piece can be both sexy and bold. On the other hand, it can be quite an obstacle to dive into (eating bird food and doing a strenuous ab workout every day might not sound that exciting). However, there are pieces that provide a slight peek of abdomen without going overboard.
With this in mind, I have really been loving this new cobalt blue peek-a-boo dress by 2B Bebe. Blue has been one of my favorite shades for the past few months. There's something about the bold yet calming feel of the color that adds a powerful statement to any look. This particular dress is detailed with a tribal studded arrangement that really stood out when I chose this daring number. It's the ideal date night or girls night out dress.
Although I haven't posted many OOTD's for a "night out" or "date nights," I absolutely love this dress for a night out on the town. It's the perfect sexy, yet completely comfortable dress for a date night with your boyfriend or a simple night out with friends. The bandage look of the dress reminds me of Herve Leger; however, this one is Guess by Marciano. The tangerine color is gorgeous as well. It's the perfect dress with a pop of color to make you stand out. I've paired it with a neutral blazer if it gets chilly at night, along with my DIY heels.
