As women we can't help being drawn to the simplicity and ease of the color black. While most assume our love stems for its slimming effect (which surely doesn't hurt), the appeal to black for us is the aura of effortless chic it exudes. Another great thing about black is how easy it is to jazz it up. Adding little pops of color can make the 'dark' cliche diminish instantly. This week our outfit does just that. At the center of our look is a classic, fitted LBD by Victoria Beckham. The slim red belt offers an unexpected and bold accent without overpowering. As for footwear, these lipstick heeled Alberto Guardiani pumps bring the glamour, while a chevron print Mark Cross bag makes for the perfect arm-candy. Linda Farrow oversized sunglasses and a flick of some inky black Givenchy eyeliner help elevate our ensemble into full on show-stopping mode. Whether you are having lunch with the ladies or simply going to work, in this outfit you will be glad you've gone 'Back To Black'.
