Milly Liza Black Lace Peplum Dress, LK Bennett Alexia Patent Leather Box Clutch and LK Bennett Palma Gold Leather Sandals

Milly Liza Black Lace Peplum Milly Liza Black Lace Peplum

This look is an evening look comprising a dress by Milly, aka Michelle Smith, the New York designer, ably accessorised by LK Bennett Clutch and Shoes.

Milly Liza Black Lace Peplum Dress

This new season black lace dress from Milly is sleeveless, featuring a round neck and keyhole detail at the back with a button fastening to the back of the neck. It has a peplum waist, a continuing trend from last season, and it falls to above the knee.

The lace is sheer, but the body of the dress is lined, revealing a sheer scalloped lace hemline. The sheer look is also a trend that we will be seeing a lot of this season – sheer without being too revealing being a key new season look.

The dress fastens with a hidden side zip fastening.

Black lace dresses are timeless and I love the fusion of sophistication and sex appeal that this dress offers. Ideal for an evening out, party or black tie dinner, the dress would look fab teamed with the clutch and sandals detailed below.

LK Bennett Alexia Patent Leather Box Clutch

This LK Bennett Box Clutch is a cannister shaped structured clutch bag, covered in patent leather. It has sleek, tubular lines with a gold frame and a push clasp at the top. Available in black or taupe, the bag is gusseted inside and features the LK Bennett Tudor Rose emblem on each end.

The clutch is big enough to contain a small coin purse, credit cards, keys, mobile phone and a lipstick and its structured shape keeps all your bits and pieces safe.

Both the black and taupe bags would go well with the above dress, but my personal preference would be to go for the taupe for the contrast effect. The taupe clutch also looks good with the Palma sandals below.

The Palma sandals are strappy gold leather sandals with a continuous asymmetrical strap which wraps around the ankle. They have a slim, stiletto heel, open toe and simply slip on to fit.

More of a stylish work of art than a pair of shoes, these heels are perfect for evening use. However, their simple lines and lack of unnecessary embellishment also means that you can use them on smart day wear occasions too.

Like taupe and black, gold will go with most outfits; just be careful about teaming it with other metallics.
