Remember when I said last week that I hadn’t abandoned my beloved black? Well, voila.
Sometimes a girl just wants to feel a little … Parisian, and nothing suits like shades of black.
Because the top and skirt are relatively simple, I wanted to add a little visual interest to the overall outfit.
Step one: neon belt. An accessory this small is the only way I can pull off such a trendy bright, but I love the way it contrasts with the black, and yellow is always a classic companion to the darker hue.
Step two: patterned hose. I’m less sure about how well these worked. You can’t tell from this photo, but the skirt is actually a small black-and-white windowpane check pattern. I was trying to play off the larger pattern against the smaller, but I wonder if it isn’t too overwhelming together?
With so many clean lines in the overall silhouette, I opted for my super pointy toed kitten heels. I know round and square toes go in and out of style as well, but I can never resist an elongated toe line.
