JTO Takes Accra: Gold Painted on Skin

Is it still sartorially acceptable to wear body-con dresses in 2017, probably not. What’s the best way to upgrade every lazy-girls nighttime staple? Pick a figure hugging dress with an unorthodox silhouette, or intricate detailing. This gorgeous, ankle grazing dress from Viva Boutique is special, but break down the elements and it’s essentially a halter-neck body-con with an extended, transparent, length. The gold tones are also really flattering. Although my motto is “never say never” when it comes to fashion, I stand by gold hues being the best colouring for black women. So let’s keep the figure-hugging fit alive! As you can see it doesn’t take much to make a little, a lot.
