A dress and a cardigan may be very simple, but with the right details and extra touches, it can be quite the outfit. Take this for example - instead of a body hugging dress, I decided to wear this pleated mustard dress. The pleat detail makes it feminine, while the color is in an eye-catching gorgeous shade. The cardigan also is not your typical cardigan as it has this fringe-like details that balances out the daintiness of the dress and lets the look lean more on an edgier side.

I finished off the look with some black and gold accessories, with the hint of that leopard-printed watch just to add some kick with the accessories. It's fuss-free, it's easy to move around in, and absolutely appropriate for our dress code.
What would you wear for a fuss-free but statement-making look? :)
