My sister and I went to a dressy fundraising event recently. Neither of us had time to shop (sound familiar?), so we both had to come up with fabulous outfits from our closets. What we figured out is that cream and black combined really makes a stunning statement! I think most of us have cream and black in our closets, right?
She had a more casual event to attend before, and we decided her black jumpsuit transitioned perfectly. You could wear black jeans and a black top with a cream blazer, cream jacket or cream sweater for the same effect. I already had this cream dress from last spring, and I loved pairing it with black hose and boots (I figured this look out in this post).
Happy outfit making from your closet! If you want to make my day, tag me in your picture so I can see!
