One of my favorite things about being a fashion blogger is having the excuse to branch out of my own sartorial comfort zone. I often try new trends and silhouettes that at first glance don’t appeal to me. I then challenge myself to put my own twist on them. However, there are certain dependable designers that never…EVER…fail to spark my interest. The timeless designs of American fashion icon Calvin Klein are reliable, elegant and never a fashion “risk”. What’s amazing is the insouciant whisper of sex appeal in his garments. There is something sensual about this “simple” yet chic black and white dress. Is it the fact that it resembles a trench coat? (No flashing necessary!) Is it the slight hint of “naughty nurse”? Or is it the fact that it looks expensive, put together and sophisticated? I think it’s all of these elements rolled into one classy, easy-to-wear look.
