Inspiration: 50 Shades of Grey

With Beyoncé’s teaser of the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey trailer (released July 22nd) and the announcement of the movie’s release on February 13th, 2015, the buzz for the hot and steamy romance is growing. If you’ve read the trilogy, you know that Anastasia Steele’s wardrobe gets a major upgrade (classy and drool-worthy) in the last two books, but the two looks from the first book that the delectable Christian Grey likes best on Ana are the plum sheath dress from their second date and the gray halter dress worn for her graduation.

The plum dress was, in Ana’s words, “demure and vaguely businesslike.” Steal this look from Ana for your next date dress—go for something close-fitting and simple to let your personality shine through!

Of the two dresses, this one strikes me as a bit classier. Again, this dress is simple and allows the wearer, rather than the dress, to shine. Give a nod to Ana next time you’re looking for some outfit inspiration!
