We all have those days where just rolling out of bed in the morning takes a great amount of effort. If you’re one of those people who is simply having a hard time opening your closet because you can’t quite manage to open your eyes, there is a solution. Not to sound like a cheesy infomercial, but a simple plan can help you overcome those lazy days.
And here it is: wear black. Black goes with anything. Any print, style or silhouette, and also looks good on every body type. This Fashionista perfectly executes the all-black look without looking too sloppy or boring.
The main part of this outfit that makes the black work is her accessory. Try pairing your all-black ensemble with a scarf of any kind! The best part of the monochromatic color scheme is that anything goes with your accessories. There are no rules anymore because any accessory can work with the dark color. A scarf is the best way to keep warm and a piece every Fashionista or Fashionisto can just throw on those sleepy mornings.
If you’re looking for a great scarf to pair with your outfit, they can be found almost anywhere this spring. Target has some great colors, sizes and even animal prints like this Fashionista. Or try a floral and striped pattern that you can mix and match with any outfit.
Oversized scarves work well during the spring when it is still warming up. They can keep you warm and are a bigger graphic piece to jazz up the rest of your outfit. If you are thinking about wearing a solid color scarf and all black, try to make it oversized to balance out the lack of color in the rest of your outfit.
Another tip for wearing a bigger neck piece is to tie your hair back like this Fashionista. Pulling your locks back into a sleek ponytail gives more attention to your necklace and your face without overpowering you. Her thick rim glasses and simple earrings also make her eyes and face more of a focal point instead of the scarf. Try out a pair of thick rimmed spectacles for your face, such as these from Ray-Ban.
So for those Fashionistas and Fashionistos who just aren’t feeling real pants or uncomfortable jackets before the sun rises, throw on a big printed scarf to spice up your morning. This will leave you looking ready to take on the rest of your day instead of looking tired .
