Having to wear a dress code based on color is a wonderful thing for someone like me who is embracing the "less is more" mindset. I just cannot justify buying myself something I won't be able to wear to work.
However, being allowed to only wear all black or black and white can be a little tricky. Black on black can go totally wrong if the fabrics and textures are amiss. Black and white when not pulled together properly can look like a food service uniform. So what's a girl to do?
Accessories people, accessories!
I've had this dress for many years and have always worn it with a white button up underneath. (Collar popped as always!) To keep from looking too uniform~y, I have worn it with patterned belts and big chunky baubles. In this reincarnation I decided a buffalo check scarf and loads of pretty bangles made it more hipster than "did you want fries with that?"
