When wearing a dark color in the winter, I like to pair it with something on the lighter side. If you’re not into white, you could also try a light wash denim.
It’s good to have one chunky heavy knit for your winter wardrobe. This one is so warm I didn’t need a coat, also it’s a California winter. Instead of going for a sweater with a waist band, a high low cut or flat laying piece, try a structured version. I like how this one a slight A-cut. This makes your legs appear smaller. The same thinking applies to the a-line dress cut.
I’ve been wanting a pair of pumps with a thick heel. This makes it easier to walk in and provides a more sturdy base. They just appear more balanced even when looking at them. It’s getting harder and harder to convince me to wear heels these days. You have to really be bring something to table, where that be a thick heel, great support or they just feel like I’m walking on a cloud.
I like pairing light and dark grey together to add some duality. What’s nice about neutrals is that you have SO many remixing options. You can really pair black, white, brown, navy, white, grey, camel, denim in hundreds of different ways. If you’re confused on how to maximize your closet, start with a variety of neutrals and build from there. It’s very complicated trying to start with a variety of bright colors and crazy prints. Although, this are fun to mix, I would recommend getting your base items first.
