It is no secret that I LOVE color. In fact, it is a rare occasion when I dress in black head to toe. Hence the reason I am dedicating a blog post to this outfit…but sometimes it speaks to me, and that is exactly what happened as I perused the new arrivals page on the Akira website. So how does a lover of color and everything girly style an all black ensemble?! Allow me to explain!
It’s all about the accessories. I’ve said it once, and I am saying it again, when in doubt wear pearls! These classic jewels will never go out of style, and will effortlessly feminize your look. Speaking of feminine accents, evening gloves…this vintage style of dress is SO regal. I cannot help but associate them with a lavish afternoon tea! This pair is perfect for the holiday season even if you just play dress up at home – no judgement. Finally, let’s talk about this fab pair of sunglasses: RHINESTONE FRINGE! Ok, I think I made my point. With the right accessories, an all black ensemble can be just as glam and girly as a pink one!
Combat boots are ALL the rage. I dabbled in this trend last year when I bought a pink patent leather pair, and have been wearing them non-stop ever since. The platform heel makes for “easy” walking – I am a self-proclaimed professional high heel wearer, but still. I love that this style of boot can go dressy or casual. They’re cute with jeans but also a great alternative to a traditional bootie. This pair from Akira is as glitzy as it gets! The allover rhinestones dazzle in the sunlight and add dimension and texture when you’re head to toe in black. ADD TO CART here.
