LBD style for casual day wear

By January 01, 2015 , , ,

Happy New Year! Let's kick of the year with an outfit post, which will now (hopefully) become a weekly feature. After all, start as you mean to go on, right?
I picked up this black lace dress from a local boutique in a sale for £15 a few months ago, but I haven't got nearly enough wear out of it, so decided to challenge myself to dress it down enough for a casual, daytime look. Taking inspiration from bohemian and grunge aesthetics, I paired the dress with my check shirt, stacks of silver bracelets and burgundy accents like the scrunched knee high socks and beanie- which was 10p from last year's Primark sale!
Dress: Goose Island, Shirt: New Look, Socks, Hat and Boots: all Primark
How do you style the LBD?
