Today is part two of NoH Series: The LBD, but it is also the first styling.
I wanted today’s lbd look to be super casual. As in crazy casual. As in throw it on run out the door. Basically, I wanted something that I could kick around town in on a cooler day.
It’s sort of a nod to 90s grunge—drawing inspiration from movies like Reality Bites and Hole era Courtney Love. I love getting to wear boots with a dress… something about the tough and sweet combo really speaks to me.
I kept the look modern by replacing a standard knit cap with a gold painted version, replaced the flannel of the 90s with a hoodie-style (faux) leather jacket. My shoes are my favorite element. I went with a short motorcycle boot that is super comfortable, but also a fun look.
Let’s give one more shout out to the gold painted knit cap. Total lux meets comfort! I mean come on, what other kind of knit cap would you expect me to wear?!
