If you have followed my blog for a while, you know my love of neutrals, especially black and white. This week, I have been very much in the mood to wear black, so even though it is about 90 degrees and sticky (hello St. Louis humidity), black is what I’ve been wearing!
|Blazer: LOFT Petites (Available here)|
To add a more summery feel to black separates, I added a white jacquard blazer and a mint quilted bag.
|Pants: The Limited|
|Blouse: The Limited|
The floral jacquard texture on the jacket, the quilting on the bag, the gold studs on the pants, and the striped detail on the shoes all add visual interest to a basic look.
|Bag: Forever 21
Shoes: Target (old)
|Rings: Torrid (Available here, here, and here)|
To finish off the look, I added mixed metal accessories.
|Necklace: Ann Taylor (Sold out on-line; may be available in stores)|
Do you prefer wearing mostly neutrals or mostly color? How do you add more interest to a neutral look?
P.S. A quick note on fit:
This jacket is a petite, which provided a great fit in the shoulders. It’s a little too big in the waist though and needs to get taken in to get a more shapely look. The sleeves are also too long and will be shortened. A before and after coming soon! 🙂
