Black is slimming, easy to wear, and sophisticated. Lately, I've found myself in the predicament of "having" to wear black for solidarity or for a funeral. So, if I must wear black, I want to feel pretty wearing it.
Here are some of my favorites in black that are anything but boring.
This ensemble from Kohl's ELLE collection was a steal. The dress and cardigan sweater cost less than $40 total! Polka dots make everything pretty!
Another great choice is the Scotland dress from Elizabeth McKay. Because black never goes out of style, you can afford to invest a little bit more in classic pieces in black.
A good pair of basic black pants is a must have in any wardrobe. I know that I've already told you about the Travel Pant from Lilly Pulitzer, but you must get these immediately! Yes, they're stretch pants, and yes, they're practically leggings, going against my negative feelings about wearing leggings in public, but you need these pants. The magic pants flatter every figure and look elegant with a front and back center seam.
