Dark romance has swept onto the scene this season with sexy, sophisticated pieces made to stir up drama. From lace trimmed slip dresses to sleek pajama-inspired suits, it’s all about making an impact, day or night. Thigh-high boots in luxurious velvet are a perfect choice for revealing just a flash of skin. A collection of crystal pins sprinkled across a lapel catch the evening light. Chokers and slick finishes add a 90s spin to these tough and tender looks. A quick slick of moody lipstick, and you’re ready to slip into the night.
