Look I'm Loving

Shenae Grimes at InStyle Magazine’s 8th annual Summer Soiree.
What she's wearing: Isabel Lu dress, Miu Miu shoes, Loree Rodkin jewels and a Kotur clutch
Ok, if you're looking at this and getting completely distracted by the sleeves - calm down! I know the sleeves will detract more conservative dressers from thinking they could wear this, but it's the overall shape and silhouette of the dress that I think is flattering. Shift dresses can sometimes make you look like you're wearing a sack, but with the right tailoring they provide a very flattering but casual silhouette. The way this Isalbel Lu gently curves in at the waist showcases Shenae Grimes' hourglass figure (and she can sometimes look a little too skinny!). The hemline again might be something that deters some people, but when shopping for yourself pick a slightly longer length if that makes you more comfortable. Overall, this is such an easy look - shift dress, strappy heels, metallic accessories and a clutch. However when you put it together the right way it's eye catching, fun, and vibrant. Remember when looking at outfits for inspiration to not get distracted by details that you wouldn't wear and focus on the overall look. This is something any girl could wear!
