In #OOTD Daily Style, Style

Sherry’s #OOTD Outfit of the Day Style & Fashion Look: “The Sexy Soft Minimalist Bodycon Look”

I post my outfits on the blog every day at noon (12 p.m. EST) under this Style category #OOTD Daily Style and then I do a summary of all the looks in my Month of Style roundup at the end of the month.

The Sexy Soft Minimalist Bodycon Look

I almost didn’t buy this dress because it was so body-conscious and not a colour I love for myself, but it is SO COMFORTABLE and thick. It was on a deep discount in a store, and I like it a lot, but looking at it in a photo, it looks better in person than in a static shot.

I have another picture of myself in it here and it looks great as a simple, minimalist dress with nothing else to distract from it.

I decided on a cognac clutch because it’s that kind of dress that requires a clutch or a bag held by the handles, not a shoulder bag. I also paired it with a gold leafed cuff (similar-style $15 gold cuff here), and now I am looking at it thinking I should have considered a necklace of some sort, maybe a long hanging, dangly tassel thing.

The strappy sandals, go with the tassel on the clutch as well, and it looks fantastic together. You can see it better here:

The cuff is a gold cuff, a statement piece, and I bought it online via Poshmark secondhand, but I found an almost exactly the same gold cuff here for $113.

There’s not much style thought that went into this because the dress is so bodycon, it does all the work. The rest is just statement this, statement that, and we call it a day, although I did purposefully match the clutch to the heels this time.

The dress is thick, comfortable, and easy to wear. The rest just fell into place, once I decided to keep the outfit minimalist.

    This dress looks fabulous on you. I can’t imagine it looking better on anyone else. There are people who could look as good in it, but none who could look better in it. Despite how bodycon it is, it doesn’t look cocktail party dressy, just sensuous. Somehow it makes your inverted triangle shape look classically hourglass.

    I disagree with you about adding a long, dangling necklace. It wouldn’t be bad, but it’s unnecessary, especially if your arms will be covered in cuffs. This out fit looks especially polished yet casual and comfortable because you matched the shoes and handbag. I agree a shoulder bag would detract from the lines of the dress.

    Good job getting it on deep discount! Score!

      Thank you! I will keep that in mind then – keeping it as a clutch, matching.. it did seem to work on this look.
