The Traveling Black Dress: Contemporary Camo Edition

Add a little khaki to that black dress in your closet.

By Beth Muecke January 19, 2015

There are so many things to do with a simple black dress. If you don't have one in your closet, go get one now. It is a basic staple that can be casual, dressy or trendy.  Just add a few pieces and accessories to change it up for whatever mood you're in, place you need to be or to reflect the newest fashion trends of the season.

Dress from Em and Lee

 Let's take our black dress and update it with a couple of the spring 2015 runway trends.  One of those trends is khaki/military inspiration. This look was shown in many designer collections for the upcoming season. One of the other popular trends for 2015 is sheer layers. Lots of see-through dominated the runways. This outfit includes a sheer top without being revealing. 

Hat and shoes: Dillards, Jacket: Express, Sheer tunic: Urban Outfitters, Necklaces: Forever 21, Arm band from a store in Los Angeles.

Instead of just hitting one store, I used a variety of items to achieve this look. 

These camo booties by Gianni Bini from Dillards pull the whole look together.
