Remember our awesome new series called Real Life Fashion?  This is what’s going down. Each episode will feature:

  • One store (Target, Forever 21, Old Navy…etc.)
  • One outfit under $100
  • Both Misses and Plus-Size fits
  • Wardrobe Basics
  • A few trendy accessories

Jess and I are both going to try on the same outfit – and give tips for our size-type. We will throw in some fun unique pieces, but we really want to focus on the basics. We both love items that are versatile and classic – and stand the test of time. This series won’t be every week – but we will feature it every now and then to give you awesome new seasonal favorites.

This week we both hit up Old Navy and styled this FABULOUS little black dress!  Let’s talk about this dress.  It is a Fit & Flare Ponte Tank Dresses – which means it’s insanely comfortable and easily washable.  I have to say, it was incredibly flattering – and one of the most comfortable dresses I’ve worn.  Right now it is only $27.  Yep.  Under $30.

We both decided to style this dress in three different ways – with any Old Navy’s classic accessories!  I took my cousin Emily along with me (so I didn’t have to ask random people to take my photo) and this is what ensued:

Let me tell you about my favorite accessories that went with this dress!

Zebra Infinity Scarf – This was my favorite scarf with this dress – it was simple and sleek – and perfect with the black dress.

Black Suede Pumps – These pumps were so comfortable!  The suede was perfect for fall – and great with the dress!

Geometric Print Scarf – I think I could wear this scarf every day.  It worked really well with this dress.

Teal Suede Pointed-Toe Flats – These were my favorite shoes with this dress.  They dressed-down the whole outfit – and were perfect with the cardigan combination!

Lightweight Cardigans – I tried on two of these cardigans with the dress – and the 3/4 length sleeve was perfect for it.  We decided the cardigan looked best with a necklace and belt.

Gold Statement Necklace – I can’t find this necklace online – but it was so perfect.  And so me :).

Other favorites were this scarf and this belt in tan.

I really had so much fun on this little shopping spree – especially because I who doesn’t love a basic little black dress?  Make sure you see Jess’s outfits here and share how you would wear the little black dress!
