  • “I”ll Have What She’s Having: Mary J. Blige’s Little Black Dress”

    Yes, simple chic can absolutely rock out when you know how to do it right, like Mary J. Blige.

    When you start with a wardrobe that has solid core basics in perfect shapes all you can do is build upon it. No fuss, no extremes, simply great pieces that always look elegant and can update in a snap.

    There is nothing more versatile and timeless than a black sweater dress in an always classic turtleneck.

    Sleeveless or long-sleeved, that’s your choice, but the flattering length is what works (hint: it is not a mini) for seasons to come.

    I hate to use the phrase “investment dressing,” but this type of essential dress really pays off in style.

    Mary is also wearing extra-large diamond hoops earrings to add some sizzle, an oversized stainless watch, and a gold love bracelet— all classic jewelry pieces that will live on in your go-to wardrobe and even nicer when they hold some sentimental attachments.

    The expansive reptile clutch bag adds some glamour and the on-trend shooties keep it modern. A platinum pixie cut and some tatts make it personal. Mary J. Blige’s look is a cinch to mimic at any price point and definitely something to be inspired by when you say you don’t know what to wear. Go to it!
