I have most everything that I might need right here in my tiny closet.
If you have been reading my blog for awhile you'll already know how I rely on garments in Black..
those items particularly the classic styles with the ability to be transformed with accessories and textures.
Black is such a versatile neutral...
I gravitate to it like a moth to a flame!
If you can wear white it is another great option...
winter white is another softer choice that works.
I prefer black with my complexion and salt and pepper hair colour...
with bold red lipstick, eye liner and mascara I am ready for an evening out or an evening at home hosting guests.
Accessories are fabulous on a basic black garment.
I think of it as a blank canvas just waiting for some decoration...
INC black tunic top
Brooches, necklaces and scarves are your best bet to dressing up the simple understated black garments.
Baroque strand of Pearls
Artisan designed necklace.
I purchased it years ago and have worn it many times.
It is SO versatile...
I have worn it with a simple white Tee and Jeans
under a denim shirt
with a leather Moto jacket
accent with a LBD
and here again with the tunic top.
I love having a funky artsy option in my jewel box.
You could wear some sparkly statement shoes or keep it simple with these Ferragamo flats.
A clutch would be another way to add a fun accent.
I have two black textured evening bags...
vintage eel skin
sourced at thrift and consignment shops at a great price point.
Textured hose is fun and feels less conservative...
I keep my wardrobe simple and small.
Owning specific Festive Holiday wear would be a luxury.
If I had to dress for a fancy ball or a "red carpet event" I would most certainly need to go shopping.
(however I feel that a red carpet event is highly unlikely)
Do you have a favourite colour to wear for the festive season?
Will you add a pop of bright colour to your outfit?
How do you approach dressing for the holidays?
Hope you have a lovely weekend and thank you for stopping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
