A Pop of Color

(Image Above: Chictopia.com)

So, you might be thinking, “Hey, this outfit is kinda basic. Why did this writer choose it as a style inspiration?” Well, I’ve always been a sucker for color. Magenta, teal, saffron – you name it. And, there’s no better way to highlight color than pairing it next to black. This is great, considering I seem to own scads of black, despite my affinity for color. The little lady featured above has really done a great job showing off her mulberry, a color that I love for its rich hue and aesthetic appeal. HerĀ  streamlined top and shorts, along with her pretty ruffled T-straps (Love them!) accentuate those mulberry-clad legs beautifully. What a great excuse to buy more colorful tights.

    I love it. I have a black floral skirt that I often wear with black heels, a black shirt, and magenta or red tights. Although I feel like its a risk wearing it to school, I absolutely love the outfit. (:

    I’ve fallen in love with the idea of a big pop of color in the tights area awhile ago; I’ve recently ordered a red and purple tights, and I’m eagerly waiting to try them out! Haha, like they’re .. a car. only in .. tights form.
