Quickie Darling Deal & Steal: Classic & Affordable Style by Jennifer Lopez @Kohl’s!

Spring is the time of year when you break out a chic dress.  Of course, you have your choice of fabulous print & bold patterns, but a solid sheath dress is always a classic choice, especially when it’s affordable.  Jennifer Lopez isn’t slowing down as a judge on American Idol, singer, actress, or fashion designer.  Her line @Kohl’s is thriving & one of my favorite pieces is the ponte sheath dress ($39.00), which features modern details like asymmetrical seams, a high cowl neck, & offset front pocket. Also, this fashionable frock is currently marked down from its original $60.00 price tag!

The lightweight fabric will move with you, but it’s also perfect for accessorizing if you want to wear it with a cardigan, thick belt, boyfriend blazer, or patterned tights.  Not to mention that right now, LWDs (little white dresses) & rich hues like royal blue are totally on-trend right now.
