Athleisure in a Black ALALA Dress.

I showcased a dress perfect for the office on Tuesday and today we’re dipping into the casual with this ALALA dress. You guys know my style comes with a little athleisure (exhibits A, B, and C), and this black number is so easy. It works well with sneakers, but would also play nice with summer sandals. I love the racer back and mesh cutouts; elements that elevate this dress above your standard LBD. I added a pair of mega hoops, some killer new red Ray-Bans (from my friends at DITTO; details on how to score this pair for free below), and a high ponytail for a cool + casual outfit.

This ALALA dress is going to be a go-to this summer, but also come fall with a denim/leather jacket over the top. The longer length means I can stretch it well into a cooler season, which I love.

Speaking of love: I love sunglasses and Ray-Ban is my go-to brand. I spotted these red + mirrored aviators via DITTO and had to have ’em. DITTO is a great way to try-before-you-buy when it comes to designer sunglasses (and eyeglasses). For only $24 a month, you can try on unlimited pairs with no obligation to buy. If you fall in love with a pair, you can purchase them at a discount. I have a feeling these red aviators are staying with me. 😉 Bonus: you can score your first month of DITTO free with code: LESTYLOROUGE. Go get yourself kitted out for the summer sunshine!

  2. That’s an awesome dress! I adore the longer length as well. And your hair looks really cool in that high pony. Great look Ashley!

  3. This is such a great casual way to wear a LBD! Your ‘athleisure’ look is a great description, I often find myself reaching for day dresses and my favourite pair of comfy sandals and aviators for sunnier days.

    You look lovely and this dress suits you nicely, a very easy throw on dress which is perfect when you’re heading out somewhere and need to be dressed quickly.

    Lovely post.

  4. As always, you look amazing. I need to work more athleisure into my life. It’s so simple yet so on trend and seriously looks to put together. You would have thought?! I swear fashion used to be so over complicated before trends like this came along!
