New York Black

The rumors are true. New Yorkers wear black. A LOT of it. Everyday. Even in the summer.

I love wearing color, although there is no denying that black has a lot of favorable traits:

– Black is slimming (thank you, black!)
– Black goes well with every other color (perfect for accessorizing)
– Black looks good on brunettes and blondes alike (and redheads, not to leave anyone out)
– Black has a “seriousness” about it, which is great for the office
– Black is chic

Below is one of my favorite black Calvin Klein sweater dresses. It is very warm and I like the feminine ruffle and button detailing on the front. This dress is very versatile because I can wear it from work to happy hour (who makes it to those…but in theory!) The dress is a little short for my work taste, so I make sure to only wear it with flats. I absolutely love the new pointy toe ankle strap flats I paired it with! To accessorize, I wore some big sunglasses and delicate green drop earrings.

On my morning commute, I felt like I blended right in!
