Forget Summer Colors

I found this strapless dress at a boutique in my college days and have worn it countless times since. Between dances, weddings and holidays it's been a consistent option for when nothing else seems to work. I'm not typically a fan of strapless, but this neckline is an exception as the cut is really unique. And while I don't typically gravitate toward black for the summertime, it's the one color that really is appropriate for any season. I paired it with Michael Kors heels and kept my accessories minimal to accentuate the bare neckline & to help accentuate the "color" that ended up shining in July.
