Need a zippy way to wear a trend without pushing the comfort level too much?
Expose that zipper!
The fashionable clasp has been turned inside out to give an instant edge to otherwise simple clothing. While the look works on basics like t-shirts and jeans, the zipper also intertwines seamlessly with dresses like Christina Aguilera's Elie Saab take from the Tokyo premiere of Burlesque on Tuesday.
Incorporate the look into your wardrobe with these takes on the LBD (plus one accent option):
