Keep it interesting by adding some color as a detail. When you buy accessories, don't limit yourself to gold or silver. Pink, blue, yellow...anything that will pop and be a pleasant surprise.
These earrings have a bit of sparkle, and they are finished off with a little strawberry on the bottom for the perfect amount of surprise against the black.
Nail polish is one of my favorite, and often forgotten accessories. Have fun with bold colors and add a pop of color to your outfit, like OPI's "No Room for the Blues" as seen in the above pic.
For this outfit, I tucked a tank dress into a high-waisted skirt and paired the look with stacked black heels.
My outfit from head to toe: strawberry earrings by Betsy Johnson, black and white dress from Forever 21, pleated skirt from the Gap, and the heels are Seychelles.
