There are some days that a black outfit with just the right fit just works for everything. I can wear this look day or night depending on how it’s styled. For a casual weekend look, I just paired it with some fun earrings, for work you could use this outfit as a base and layer on a blazer and tights and for evening a fun sequin jacket or sheer blouse and belt would take you anywhere.
Every woman needs essential pieces that fit well to reach for when you don’t want to think about what your wearing. I find that both of these pieces fit that description for me. The top is just so well fitting and the ruched sides always make me feel thinner. The skirt is a special stretch double weigh material that really holds you in. I love that it’s like having a spanx built in except alot more comfortable.
TIPS FOR CHOOSING ESSENTIAL
I usually select wardrobe essentials in neutrals and black. That would be cream, tan, white, winter white, brown, buff and several shades of grey. I look for great fitting pants and skirts in stretch fabrics. I also like fitted tops with no more than one design element and jackets that can easily transition from dressy casual to evening. Those are great basic rules to follow.
