This week's Fashionista brightens up a black-on-black ensemble with statement accessories and cozy textures. Sophomore Sarah Freeman pairs a textured black shift dress with a classic cardigan and black ridden boots. To brighten up this all-black combination, she accents the look with a merlot-colored scarf in floral print and a vintage plated belt in gold.
This Fashionista says comfort is one of her first priorities when it comes to dressing for class, so this cozy combination of soft knits and black stockings is the perfect solution for being both functional and fashion-forward around the clock.
