10 Outfits for 10 Occasions: Adyna’s formal affair in chilly weather

Adyna entered our 10 Outfits for 10 Occasions contest so now not only is she in the running for a Chloe & Reese dress, a handbag from The Sak, or a dinner at Bruno Jamais, but she gets her what to wear question answered as well. Adyna picked up some summer dresses she was hoping to convert to winter wear with a satin shrug that just covered the shoulders. She has a leopard print Bebe maxi dress, but we thought we’d show you the Roberto Cavalli for H&M leopard maxi dress since we know so many of you have them. Well, you were right Adyna, it is nearly impossible to find a black satin shrug. While we found one by DKNY at our local Marshalls, it was nowhere online and we wanted to show you something we knew you could get. So we found this chiffon shrug at David’s Bridal – one of our secrets for non-bridal formalwear. Keep reading for more details on this outfit!

So you’ve got the dress and the shrug, what else to wear to pull this outfit together? We chose tri-tone gold oval hoop earrings from Macy’s, $179.10. The black evening bag with a chain handle and gold hardware is from The Sak for $69. And we figured that if Adyna would rock a leopard print maxi dress, she’d also don some peep-toe booties from Steve Madden, $169.95. The bootie adds a little bit of warmth, while the peep toe and patent leather keeps it dressy. These are probably best for those under 5’7″ who might need some height to keep the hem of the dress skimming the floor. If you’re tall, we’d stick with flats.

And, if you didn’t get your hands on the Roberto Cavalli dress, here’s one from Bebe that would definitely work for holiday.
