what’s on my shopping list when i head to the office? statement accessories, modern knits, and boots. this black knit sheath is a go-anywhere dress. the fabric makes it easy to survive a day at the office or even to throw in a suitcase for a trip – knits can take a beating. what’s remarkable about a knit is that it can still look as fresh at the end of the day as when you first threw it on in the morning. and what’s better than an lbd? it’s a blank canvas for standout accessories like a string of pearls. polish it off with a long cardigan that doubles as a coat. what makes this sweater stand out is the contrast of black against the ivory. notice the collar, cuffs and belt are black. it’s details like this that set an outfit apart and give it a zing. black boots, structured handbag and i’m ready for anything the day hands me.
