How To Accessorize Your Black-&-White Look, Courtesy of Anna Kendrick

There's a lot to be said for keeping things simple. Sometimes, sticking to the basics, like a classic black-and-white ensemble, is all it takes to pull off a stunning look. Take the understated blazer-and-dress combo Anna Kendrick donned for New York Fashion Week. In a sea of eccentrically styled bloggers, editors, celebrities, and so on, the actress' outfit feels like a breath of fresh air — not to mention a pretty chic look for work and the weekend.
Plus, with this style, day-to-night dressing is a snap: All you have to do is swap your accessories before catching up with friends after work. Trade in your oversized tote and business-casual pumps for accents that will add a bit of flair to your structured look. A colorful clutch, like the Rebecca Minkoff style Kendrick is holding, and sexy lace-up heels do just that. Swipe on some red lipstick for the finishing touch, and then you're ready for cocktails. Let the weekend begin!
