The Perfect Outfit: Glam Up Basic Black With Faux Fur

Need an insta-fix to spruce up a basic black frock? We spotted this Janelle Monae-lookalike at a recent Bloggers Night Out event, and we dig her chic long-sleeved dress. Her cozy fur topper takes it from standard issue to super-special — and we're guessing it's extra-warm, too. Elegant tassel earrings and a bright lip make this look just right for a holiday get-together or an early 2012 date night, and comfy, walkable booties mean you can stay on your feet all night. And did we mention how much we love that awesome braided topknot? Now, just scoop these easy pieces (handpicked just for you!) to recreate this no-fuss, just-festive-enough outfit.
