{How To} Wear Black and Not Look Boring

Fall outfits are my favorite. Really! You can play with textures and layers, wear different vests and tights, transforming you clothes in every way. I know that many people consider black to be a boring color but let's think about a little black dress. Is it simple? Yes. Is it boring? Never. For this outfit I loved the dramatic contrast of colors and a little bit of pattern play (thank you Target). Here is how to wear black and look fabulous.

1. Throw in a Color. Weather it is a scarf or a bold lip, wear a little bit of color with your black ensemble. Even if you want to add a pop with shoes - that is always a good idea. Black is like a blank canvas so you can wear any color with it.

2. Layer on Different Textures. If you have to wear your old LBD consider layering a fur vest or syncing it at the waist with a different belt. Another thing you can do is put on a cardigan, or wear a cute blouse underneath.

3. Accessorize Like Crazy. When it comes to black, everything goes with it, really. No one will ever know that the dress has been in your closet for ages, if you put a different necklace on with shoes and bright handbag. Gloves, hats, bracelets, necklaces, and bags are all amazing at playing up old favorites.

  3. Anna, this is my favorite Fall look of yours yet. An outfit I would wear head to toe. I love your skirt and clutch. And I love Target - I am wearing some Target (and Burgundy) on today's post, too.

    I agree with your "how to wear black advise" and follow number 1 and 3 (rules) especially.

    I wish you and your sweet family of four a Very HAPPY HALLOWEEN weekend! It is your daughter's first Halloween. What will you dress her up as?
