Texture & Shine

I always love mixing patterns, textures, and various materials, but I especially love doing it with all black looks.

Dress:  Ann Taylor
Blazer:  New York & Company

I paired my black slip dress with a velvet blazer, patterned tights, and glitter heels.  I added a blingy necklace and red satin ruffle clutch to complete the look.

Necklace:  LOFT
Earrings:  Target
Clutch:  Hollywould for Target (purchased from eBay)

I’m doing a holiday outfit collaboration series later in December and decided not to include this look, but it would definitely be perfect for the holidays!  I’d love this for a more formal Christmas party or New Year’s Eve event. 

Bracelets (left arm):  LOFT
Bracelet (right arm):  Wet Seal

In lieu of the velvet blazer, you could add a faux fur cropped jacket for a slightly more glam look.

Tights:  Merona for Target (old)
Heels:  Payless (old)

What’s your favorite color to wear?  How do you keep monochromatic looks interesting? 

Any holiday plans for which you plan to get glitzed up?
