Want to get the look?
Put that bronzer away! To achieve this look yourself, why not grab a plain black laced dress and dark high heels as a base, before adding silver studded accessories to your look and finishing with dark, shadowy makeup. This look is moody and romantic. Keep your hair natural with soft waves in a rich, deep hue. And you needn’t stick to black; think about layering lace, sheer chiffon and velvet textures or opt for deep purple and emerald colours.
