an iconic piece that has stood the test of time is a fab pair of trousers. this wardrobe staple resists trends and never fails to look good, no matter what year it is. pick a classic color like black or white, and you will step out the door year in and year out in style.
today, the color combo couldn’t be any more classic. black and white are always all right in my book. and nothing is cozier or more comfortable to wear than knits. today’s version is a knit duster that is a marvelous transition piece when the temps are colder in the morning. it’s a soft alternative to a coat or jacket. the best part about this ootd? it can go from desk to dinner with ease. for a daytime look add a pair of pearl or diamond stud earrings. for evening glam it up with chandeliers. add a pair of pointy-toed pumps and black handbag for day/sandals, clutch for night and this outfit has classic chic written all over it. but don’t be afraid to mix and match accessories. as you can see, i have one foot planted in day and one in evening.
