Recently, one of my absolute favorite brands, Maje, launched a new day to night collection. The entire collection (as one might suspect) is entirely black… relying upon texture to add interest and give each and every piece a special feel. The brand invited me to style a look from the collection and it was really, really hard to choose which pieces to wear. The collection is full of pieces you never knew you wanted or needed… like embellished tees, lurex, and even glitter jeans. Yes, you heard that right – glitter jeans. They are so cool but in the end I wasn’t sure I could pull them off. Also, this leather jacket. In the end, I had to be a dress (as this is also what I plan to wear on NYE.) I was torn between this looser fitting A-Line dress, this dress with honeycomb mesh stripes, and the one I ended up wearing.
I ended up choosing this dress for it’s fit & flare silhouette (my favorite) but also the beautiful details… the beading, the thick neoprene-like fabric…. and if we’re being honest, the pockets! I live for pockets in my dresses. I topped it off with this wrap coat and paired the look with black pumps and a simple clutch. Boom… ready for an evening out on the town!
More favorites from the collection!
The details on this coat were what made me fall in love with it… I love the subtle sparkle on the belt. You could get away with wearing it to the office, but it’s really meant to be worn out and about.
And the glitter sole on my shoes is EVERYTHING. The photo doesn’t quite do it justice… they are super, super sparkly.
