DRESS CODE: POWER PIECES

Posted on June 07 2019

Recess Los Angeles Vintage Designer Consignment Womens Fashion Power Pieces Gold Luminous Vacation Yves Saint Laurent YSL Tide Pool Short Shirt Set Outfit

Recess Dress Code

We love a good print. Even better when it's in a great silhouette. Or by Saint Laurent. What's not to love? We love a little peacocking, especially when we have powerfully strong pieces to show off. Rich jewel tones and sumptuous satins need little else to shine- and we love how dramatically they pop against intense black. Here are our fave statement looks that demand attention, just in time for those summer soirées. Now go forth and command the room!

A one-piece outfit is the ultimate display of confidence: nothing to hide behind, no extra fluff- just clean and deliberate style. The high neck and sleeveless bodice on this jumpsuit by Alice creates a sleek silhouette accented by a bold floral print that announces its presence. Plus it's one less decision to make; you're a busy lady.

This stunning sheath by Ann Lawrence is a sophisticated style statement. Tropical-hued sequin flowers are given presence with wired edges, giving them the strength to stand on their own. An asymmetrical bodice shows off a toned shoulder, keeping the look sleek. We'd wear this as a beach bride in Waikiki, on the red carpet, or find an excuse to wear it to dinner!

All that glitters really IS gold- in this case, a hard-to-find two-piece set by Ferrara is a shining example. Liquid gold mesh drips down the body and gives us all glitter envy- be sure to give some to someone else.

Lastly, the most powerful look leaves a lasting impression, from entrance to exit. Be sure to cover that exit.
