Zip It

There’s something about zippers on clothing…it makes it feel a little extra sexier, daring and adventurous. Take this dress from 4.Collective…it’s just your normal classic silhouette but that zipper that runs all along the side of it makes this dress stand out from your ordinary wardrobe staple. It’s always great to have classics (and trust me, that’s so my style) but it’s also nice to make some of these classic pieces become a little more contemporary in style and attitude. Also, that hemline is definitely adding a little extra sass to what could very well be a work dress. That’s why I love this line so much…you can go from work to happy hour to dinner with your love without doing so much as having to reapply your lip color.

Dress: Gemma Bi-Stretch sleeveless dress c/o 4.Collective (and on sale now!!)
Bag: Jewel box by Snob Essentials via HSN (love their summer colors)
Shoes: Nude peep toe heels by Miu Miu (similar styles here, here and here)

It’s amazing what a little zipper can do for the overall look. I love zippers on jackets (gives them a nice edge), zippers on leather pants (Downtown chic), zippers on skirts (90’s flashback) and zippers on dresses (classic but modern).

By the way, this dress also comes in white….absolutely perfect for summer!
