I didn't have a ton of color inspiration this morning, so I started with a clean slate. I picked a black and white printed pencil skirt (from White House Black Market) to go with the DVF top that I found at the Rack on *crazy* clearance. Seriously, it was like 80% off; I practically drooled over the deal! I was so excited to finally cut the tags off of it. Still not feeling any color, I added on a
black patent wide belt, since the belt loops on the skirt were big enough to fit one. *Side note: if the skirt has belt loops, fill them!* The outfit needed a third piece since it was a bit chilly: keeping with the theme, I opted for a lightweight black v-neck cardigan. The necklace was also void of color. Boy. Cute, but boring! So I headed back to the closet to find some shoes. Voila! My vampish red patent leather heels. Perfect finishing touch and now I was complete!
When choosing an outfit of black and white, an easy color to splash in, with maximum impact, is red. It's a foolproof standby, especially now that it's a huge color for fall.
