OK. I just can’t help but smile when I look at this outfit. It screams FUN! Topped by a black sweater that’s playful and lighthearted. Well maybe brighthearted is the better description. Shiny bright jeweled hearts, eyes and other designs break up and add welcome color to the warm top.
Basic black is always a classic but you can lighten the mood of an outfit by making sure it has some colorful details. Even a brooch or pin with multicolored stones will help to take the somberness down a notch.
I went even further by pairing with a leather look “A” shaped short skirt. The above the knee length and big flare really help add curves where there may not be many! It also allows for a lot of leg to show until you end at the multi-color high chunky heel open toed strap shoes. It just so happens that the colors on the shoes coordinate nicely with the colors on the sweater and the turquoise hat. Since there was enough color already, I’ve added a bit of neutral metallic accent with a large pearl necklace and silver purse.
