Tired of a closetful of LBDs?  Derek Lam‘s twist on the LBD, this little black and white dress is a great go to for so many occasions.  We see this dress from Madison Avenue to Wall Street, an afternoon polo match to an evening wedding, and just about everywhere in between!

The easy to wear shift is all business black jersey from the rear but gets fresh and fun in front with assymetrical detailing, a handkerchief hem, and the beautiful white bonded boucle fabric.  This black and white dress, like all Derek Lam pieces, manages to be unfussy yet luxe at the same time with its easy shape and marvelous detailing.

We went eclectic with our styling of the black and white dress, pairing it with Aquazzura + Olivia Palermo suede and mesh pumps, a great graphic vintage clutch, and a mix of bangles including one from The Ropes.  The feather choker is fashioned from a feather skinny belt.  This entire look is a traffic stopper- the world will see you coming!  Please contact us for shopping details on this look.
