On Saturday, I asked on Instagram what my readers would love to see on Elbe Couture this week. The first response I received was something that I am really passionate about. A lovely reader asked for Dresses that are elegant yet budget-friendly. She would like to see something like what Duchess of Cambridge Catherine wears but within our banking range. So today’s look has a dress that fulfils the criteria beautifully.
The outfit has $235 Phase-Eight Danni Printed Floral Dress. A stylishly simple occasion dress printed with romantic florals. This style is finished with short sleeves and a below the knee hem and has a concealed centre back zip fastening. Another look at the beautiful dress and its print.
I paired the dress with minimal accessories to keep the classic elegance. $70 Nina Regine Drop Earrings. A golden pearl teardrop is ensconced in elaborate, crystal-accented filigree.
To give the outfit a pop of the colour, I picked a contrasting sea green $365 clutch from Rafe New York. The SOFIA octagon clutch is made of handwoven buntal straw, trimmed in snakeskin with a drop in silk tassel, a detachable drop-in chain strap and three turquoise Howlite stone closure. It’s a great lightweight clutch to take if you’re going somewhere warm and sunny.
As mentioned in my 5 Wardrobe Basics Every Lady Needs to Invest, a pair of the classic pump can change the whole outfit and give it regal aura. I picked Zeynep Arcay Tulle Satin Pumps. Zeynep Arcay’s $650 satin pumps are crafted in a sleek silhouette with tonal tulle trimmings. Set atop a three-inch stiletto heel, this point-toe pair is designed in a soft gold-hue that works well with warm colour palettes.
