DRESS DOWN THE DRESS: ASHLEY GREENE AT THE ECLIPSE PREMIERE

Based on the results of Tuesday’s Twilight poll, Ashley Greene’s look was your favorite at the L.A. premiere of Eclipse. Let’s call this style ‘Intricate Simplicity.’ Not only do I really like those two words together, but I can’t think of a better way to describe a look that’s plain without being ordinary; I mean, other than the gold bracelet, she isn’t even wearing jewelry! I heard someone say it looked like she was going to a toga party; it must have been the hottest, greatest toga party ever! I’ve asked the stylists for a few quick tips on how to do something similar—although maybe a little more wearable at non-toga parties. Here’s their advice:

- Stick with the monochromatic gray scheme. If you’re hungry for color, look for grays that have baby blue or sage undertones.

- Keep it simple; but how simple is up to you. A tank dress is as basic as it gets, so you may want to find a piece that also features gathered elements, which add complexity and movement to the look.

- Ashley’s look isn’t all about the shoes. You, however, can draw more attention to your stunning shoes by contrasting the single-color, matte finish of your dress with something metallic, like Aven, or two-toned, like Carolina.

- As you can tell by her silver clutch and gold bracelet, Ashley isn’t afraid to mix metals. Bangles like Treasure Chest in silver will reinforce the gray palette; a touch of gold will add visual interest and reinforce the glow of a great tan. An accessory like your Robertson clutch will provide both: the gray and the gold.
