Diamond in the Rough
My absolute favorite go to is black and white. The diamond shape graphics give this look an attention grabbing detail without over indulging in loud colors. Black and white are classic, of course, and anyone can wear. Avoid horizontal stripes as we all know black slims but white reveals and the stripes would not do anyone any good (unless you are a size 0)!! Notice the narrow part of the diamond sits about at my waist and the all black back makes the look more slimming as well. Here are some links where you can buy your own black and white graphic prints from Nicole Miller and K Karl Lagerfeld - not bad prices either for something you can keep in your closet for a long time to come. My tunic is from Target (where else? I am very thrifty these days) as are the leggings and the cardigan. The boots are Nine West.
