I love an "easy to pull together outfit". There's not a lot that is more basic than black and white right?
The pattern and cut of the skirt is sort of classic and timeless. Instead of just pairing with a plain black blouse I opted for this black lace top. Tip #1 - just because it's basic colors doesn't mean it has to be basic cut or plain. The lace adds a beautiful element to the outift.
But the FUN of the outfit happened when I paired it with kelly green shoes and a matching green necklace. They are show stoppers of the outfits. It's the unexpected elements that makes you stop and take notice. Tip #2 - if you shoes are the pop of color make sure your necklace isn't a different pop of color. It needs to match or not "stand out" - meaning I would have worn a black necklace or something that wouldn't be as flashy at the green necklace.
Want to win THIS necklace? Well not this one because it's mine but one exactly like it? I have a giveaway right now and 2 lucky readers will win one of these green statement necklaces from Very Jane.
Tip #3 - The black and white skirt is versatile to go with many colors. What about wearing it with a RED top? or what about yellow? So many fun possibilities with tops and accessories to mix and match and not get tired of the same ol' same ol' outfit.
