There’s a temptation for a floor-length gown to end up feeling like it’s stuck in a time warp. That may be your intention; but if you’re aiming for a look that’s less vintage and more now, how do you style it? In this shoot, stylist Monique Lewis answers with accessories. A black gown or a statement orange one, add a dangling pendant or tassle necklace and the 70s revivalist feel comes to the fore.
In another of Michael Stuart Daley’s photographs a short, structured orange dress feels distinctly 1960s, especially when matched by a bold ’60s ‘do. But again, the right combination of clutch, cocktail rings, and high heels keep everything perfectly fresh.
From pleats to shimmering retro palazzo pants, there’s a number of looks to catch your eye in this shoot, titled Fresh Elegance. Click on the thumbnails above to view it all.
