Style Advice of the Week

With so many choices out there in the fashion world, deciding what to wear each day can be very overwhelming. Enter the classic black ensemble. It's chic, it's streamlined and most of all, it's easy. This Fashionista manages to pull off this look fantastically with a few unique accessories to make this basic look sparkle. I love how laid back and comfortable this look is, while still maintaining a level of sophistication because of the black palette. Her gray circle scarf does provide the eye with a visual entry point for the outfit, while also complementing my favorite part of the Fashionista’s outfit: her boots. I was fascinated with the way that the circular silver studs stood out against the stark blackness of her boots and tights. I think this outfit was a perfect way to highlight the boots and let them truly shine through.

Every girl should have some basic black pieces in her closet. My go-to pieces are often my basic black ones because not only are they easy to wear, but also they are easy baselines to create a look from. One of the most classically known fashion pieces is the Little Black Dress, or LBD as it is often referred to on the world wide web. If you don’t already own one of these I would highly recommend purchasing one. Forever 21 has a whole section online devoted to the LBD, with tons of options to choose from.

I personally like a little glitz with my dresses. For a night out I would style my LBD with some sparkly heels and a red lip. Others may prefer to go a more conservative route and pair the dress with some classic black pumps and minimal makeup. Whatever your style may be, never underestimate the timeless chic of an all black look.
