Black is the New Black

Not orange, pink, or even Pantone’s Color of the Year could ever replace black, let’s be real. I had way too much fun with this outfit (as you will see by the unusual amount of photos) and it was effortless to assemble.

We styled this blazer two different ways to show how simple it is to get away with wearing something twice. I’ve also incorporated pieces already featured for the same reason. I love items that can be paired with several different items in my closet, so I try to stick to neutral and earth tone colors for these staple pieces. I’ve included way too many alternatives for most of these pieces, so I just added them to the bottom of the post if they aren’t directly tagged.

So, I linked these mules (half off!!) in my post, And on Wednesday’s We Wear Pink , and promised myself to feature soon. I love how you can lace them up several different ways and at multiple heights on your legs. Today, I laced them around the back of my ankle and tied a bow in the back. They fit true to size and are very comfortable. I’ve linked up different colors and styles down below.

This black (subtly) sparkle dress is from H&M, but no longer on their site. I did link up several options below, though. Many can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the shoes you wear. I love to pair my Adidas Tank Dress with this maxi blazer and some superstars for a relaxed look.

However, this Black Tank Dress from Asos is a perfect dupe for my look today. I added this long line blazer from H&M (here’s one alternative from Zara ) and paired it with some Betsey Johnson Snake Gold Hoop Earrings and this standout Betsey Johnson Black and Gold Comic Crossbody.I am a collector of her pieces and they never let me down. They add so much detail and GLITTER to anything! Down below I linked up a similar pair of earrings, plus a few bags I couldn’t take my eyes off.



This duster blazer also pairs well with skinny jeans. We brought back the striped sweater featured in If the Skirt Fits, Buy it in Every Color, and paired it with these beautiful gold and black loafers.
