During this time of year, it’s rare to see students putting in much sartorial effort – even for a night out. When I saw Favour Lucky (also known as Lucky) wearing a slim-fit dress in the early evening, I had to stop her. She is what I call dressed from head to toe.

Elements of Lucky’s Outfit
1. Suede Pumps
Lucky found these awesome suede pumps from the online boutique Lola Shoetique. She hit the jackpot with these cute heels! I love how they complement her black dress and keep her look sophisticated. Lucky said she wanted a simple look that wasn’t basic, and she nailed it!
2. Pinky Ring
Lucky has no problem with keeping her accessories minimal. This pinky ring from Aldo is so cute. It’s the right touch of glam for her simple look.
3. Black Dress
Lucky got her dress from our trusty friend Forever 21. The back of this dress is to-die-for! It shows the right amount of skin for any fun event you have going on. This dress can also be dressed up or down – it’s so versatile. A denim jacket and some high-top Converse would make for a winning look for class.
4. Bold Lip
I love a bold red lip on women of color. It makes our skin pop. Lucky is wearing the world famous shade Ruby Woo by MAC Cosmetics, which is an amazing choice for women of all skin tones. Red lips are bold and statement-making, so take a cue from Lucky and spice up your next simple look with a bright lip.
