A Bookworm’s Style #3 – The Little Black Dress


Another bookworm’s style! Look at me doing outfit posts left and right! I don’t know how long it’ll last, but this is the last round of my ASOS’ New Look Dresses posts! I wanted one that looked rather professional and since I’ve never worn a peplum dress before, I knew I wanted this dress no matter what!

Man I have a big forehead. 

Dress: ASOS’ New Look Dresses // Necklace: Venice, Italy // Clutch: Michael Kors

I could see this paired with a colored blazer, if needed! That would be a nice touch! Or even a black blazer with just the necklace for the pop of color. 

This is a sponsored post, I was given credit to purchase this dress from ASOS.com. All opinions are my own.

  • What a lovely dress! I think the peplum cut looks really professional and it's super flattering!

    That dress is gorgeous on you 🙂

  • Wow Jess you look absolutely gorgeous!! Love the dress!


  • The peplum dress suits you well. 🙂 I love how peplum can be feminine without being too much. And yes to the colored blazer. I can just imagine how that ensemble would top off a great professional look.

  • I love that dress! You look awesome in it!

    I love black dresses because you can accessorize them with pretty much anything. Finding that perfect black dress is essential for every girl's wardrobe 😉

    You look amazing in that dress!

    I own one peplum dress, which I purchased for a masquerade Halloween party a couple years ago, and I really like it – so much comfier than I was expecting from a form fitting dress!

  • LOVEEE the necklace, it's such a beautiful and unique piece! Also I love your dress of course :]

  • Thank you! I've never worn a peplum cut before, but I really liked it!

  • Thank you! I was worried it wouldn't fit right, since I ordered it offline and couldn't try it on first, but it worked well!!

  • Thank you so much!!

  • Thank you!! 😀

  • Thank you! I've always liked the peplum look, I think it's a winning combination of cute and professional!

  • Black dresses are my favorite, actually, black in general, it just works so well with everything! Thank you!

  • Form fitting dresses always scare me, I'm always worried they will hug my body weird, but this one worked so well! 🙂 Thank you!

  • Thank you! It's one of my favorite necklaces! I always wear it for special occasions!
