Black and White Dress: Class

Since this dress can skew a bit too elegant for an average day on campus, dress it down with casual, yet polished pieces like a mint cardigan and a soft floral infinity scarf. This gives the look a laid-back feel, while still giving off a sophisticated vibe. Play with color by adding a structured coral bag and matching crystal earrings. Complete the look on a girly note with a pair of cream-colored lace brogues.

Mix this classic frock with a bold pop of color for your night look. Grab a pair of mint peeptoe heels and matching chandelier earrings to create an eye-popping color combination that's both edgy and sophisticated. Next, accessorize with a crystal teardrop statement necklace for a little extra sparkle and add a sleek black snakeskin clutch for a touch of glamour. Complete the look with bright fuchsia nails.
