Have you ever encountered a dilemma when trying to find the perfect statement dress? Whether it’s the color, the style or the overall design, I’m sure many things factor in when choosing the right dress. I’m always on the lookout for something sophisticated and chic that is suitable for a party or event. When I was browsing through the Desigual store a month ago, my eyes immediately fell on this beautiful number, a collaboration design by French designer Christian Lacroix.
The intricate metallic print in subtle spectrum of color, the beaded and tasseled details to decorate the décolleté area, and a smart collar that screams sophisticated. It’s not exactly a fitted dress, which adds room for layering during the colder winter months – I did so with a simple turtleneck top. This textured chester coat made in a velvety material is also a Lacroix collaboration piece, and I find it to be one of my more versatile outerwear choices this winter. Both of them are my go-to items for a fun & luxurious night out in Tokyo.
Desigual always has cute and colorful designs for day and evening wear, no matter the season. It’s very easy to fall into the black/gray/brown color palette trap during winter, but Desigual always has brighter options to spice up your wardrobe. Just last summer, I wore a head-to-toe all red ensemble for their collection launch party (see post here), and I’m still in love with the setup. Have you ever shopped at Desigual before? Do you like wearing statement pieces in color, or would rather stick to a monotone wardrobe for fall/winter? Let me know in the comment section!

This dress fabric up close is really something else!! There are so many colours, yet from a distance it almost comes across like a neutral print. That is so clever. Perfect on you too. Love these night shoots!
