What to wear for an elegant evening

fashion over fifty Not Only Twenty

How many times have you been having an elegant evening and panicking because you do not know what to put on and maybe open the closet and feel even more desperate because you find nothing that feels suitable for you on the occasion?

Don’t despair you can always wear a pair of black pants and a pajamas-style shirt to fix the evening.

If you have time and desire to look for something suitable for the occasion, then my advice is to buy a super female dress.

How to choose the right dress

I usually look for tight clothes because they fit better on me, but this dress by Simone Rocha has caught my attention from the first time I saw it.

In black damask cotton fabric has large embossed red flowers that give a joyful look to the piece.

With a tight bodice, the skirt, in contrast, is curled up and wide. It couldn’t miss the skirt slit that is highlighted by the big bow.

The curl of the skirt doesn’t slim the silhouette, but it is clear that the amplitude is given by the width of the gown, which in this case becomes the protagonist.

This dress makes me dream, reminds me of those worn by the beautiful Claudia Cardinal in the film The leopard by Visconti.

This type of dress is perfect for important occasions: a graduation, a wedding, a theater evening, an elegant dinner and a thousand of other situations.

The thing that is a bit more difficult is what to wear on, since the width of the skirt tends to widen, the only solutions are either a very short jacket (I also like leather, to create a contrast) or a stole of cashmere.

I wore gold-colored shoes with black trim and Marni’s small bag in three colors.

I didn’t add accessories because the dress is very rich and doesn’t need it.

What do you think? Would you wear it for an elegant occasion?
