It’s classic, it’s versatile and it’s a must-have closet staple. What am I talking about? Why an LBD, of course! Layer it, accessorize it or wear it as is, you’re never going to go wrong with this timeless piece. This post is about the classic complemented with the modern all in the simplest of ways, featuring a really special store - Fervour.

Fervour is a multi-designer luxury boutique in Bangalore with collections from Marc Jacobs, Dsquared2, Icerberg, Nina Ricci and more. When I recently attended the preview of the fall/winter collection, I was highly impressed with the products at the store. I love that they have different designers that compliment each other all under one roof. Their collection is all about adding some winter fun with pops of colour and at the same time keeping things very classy. The bags at the store is one thing I was drawn to the most and also this season’s Iceberg collection in particular.

The sweater dress from Iceberg is all I could ask for this winter. The mesh detailing makes it far from boring with a little modern element to a classic piece. I cinched up the dress with a belt to add a bit more character. While deciding how to style this outfit, I kept thinking of what more I could add to it and how I could make it different only to realize that simple is the best to go. I may not be much of an earring person but I couldn’t say no to this pair (also because my hair finally long enough for up-dos that show earrings off!). Accessorizing can make or break an outfit and it couldn’t be more true than with this look. It adds the amount of glam to the outfit and dresses the whole ensemble up immensely.

I think it is absolutely crucial to have staples like these in your closet. Having pieces that shine on their own is my cheat code to days when I’m too lazy to take the effort to put something together. Sometimes its great to stray away from all the fuss and go with a minimal, understated and effortless look.

Fervour is one of those stores that caters to all your different dress up moods and there’s no better feeling than having a little luxury splurge once in a while!
