Who says LBDs have to be worn with flats or heels? Put on a pair of badas* boots before you hit the ground running this Friday


The LBD you should acquaint yourself with today is this seemingly simple version by Balenciaga under Alexander Wang. You can find his signature aesthetic within the lace-up detailing to the front of the dress and the sporty yet sexy silhouette.

While a pair of cute heels or ballet flats might be the obvious option with the aforementioned dress, cosy your feet up in a pair of edgy Givenchy calf leather ankle boots. One silver-tone metal stud-embellished strap isn't enough to channel your inner rockstar, so go with four with these studly booties.

Up the ante with Chanel's latest denim and calfskin backpack from the Pre-Collection Autumn/Winter 2016. It's sizable enough to toss your belongings in while providing a touch of luxe to your ensemble.

Accessorising is key when it comes to giving the right attitude to complement your look. Go all out with this majestic gold-tone metal lion ring by Gucci that's embellished with glass pearls and green Swarovski crystals.

We believe that the rule "less is more" doesn't really apply especially when it comes to accessoring for an edgy outfit like yours. Style your other wrist with this gold-plated brass cuff that's anchored by two spheres—how chic is this?

Before you head out for your usual Friday night shenanigans, apply this slick of matte deep red lippie from M.A.C Cosmetics for a saturated shade of crimson. After all, what colour combo is better than black, gold and a hint of vampy red?
