How do you dress up plain black and white? It’s simple really - just add embellishment and texture! You’ll be amazed at how glamourous basics can look with a little bit of shine. Here’s how to get the black and white, yet strikingly embellished look:
1. Start with black and white basics: a body conscious black and white striped sweaterdress and simple black ankle leggings.
2. Add a touch of edge with a well cut motorcycle jacket, also in black.
3. Spice up the look with a pair of embellished velvet flats (for both embellishment AND texture) and a striking silver beaded sequinned clutch. With these statement accessories, you can take a daytime look well into evening.
