Star Style: Black & White Geometric Dress

Considering my penchant for classic shapes and colors, it should come as no surprise that I love a good black and white combo. Alone, the colors are classic and sophisticated, but together, they’re a minimal but chic powerhouse. That’s one of the many reasons I went crazy over the look actress Lucy Liu wore last week when she showed up to tape “Late Night with David Letterman.”

The exaggerated shoulders make the traditional silhouette a bit more daring, and the geometric, striped bodice takes the look from basic to bold. I adore her ankle-strap heels, and the simple hair and makeup keep the outfit day-appropriate. I loved the look so much it inspired me to create two of my own—one fit for a budget, and the other fit for my dreams.
