The Not-So-Classic Pump
More exciting than a standard all-black pair, and yet still goes with everything.
The Accent Piece
And it’s even better when the accent is leopard.
The No-Makeup, No-Problem Statement Lip
It’s amazing how one swipe of color can brighten up your whole face. (P.S. if you’re really desperate for an extra zhuzh, dab a little bit onto your cheekbones with your fingers for a makeshift blush.)
The Ice-Breaking Jewelry
A statement piece of jewelry does not have to be super flashy and shiny to get the “This is my going-out look!” sentiment across. Instead, opt for a strong, bold, and conversation-sparking rock, like this one.
The Throw-On-&-Go LBD
Should a wardrobe change be in order for tonight’s last-minute soiree, date, or everyone-in-the-industry-will-be-there work event, there’s nothing as foolproof as a swingy black dress.
