For their older sister Tamar's wedding, Lori and Taleen shopped for bridesmaid dresses as a team. The bride's only stipulation was that "the dress had to fit in with her wedding's black and white color scheme," says Lori. The result was this silk dress from BCBG Max Azria.
Why this dress works The combination of a neutral palette and a modern pattern makes this silk dress very versatile. On Lori (far left), the black and white combo paired with vibrant accessories makes the outfit perfect for a daytime event, like a baby shower or an upscale brunch. Taleen looks sleek and office-appropriate when she covers the sexy strapless neckline with a modern jacket and adds black tights.
