I should have read Angie’s Top 25 Style Tips before getting dressed today.

6. Be mindful of how you wear black. It can look chic, dressy, slimming, hard-edged, strong and dramatic, but it can also look boring, harsh, flat and predictable.

I was not thrilled with how today’s outfit looked. I thought I needed a boost of color, so changed the scarf and accessories. I was still feeling less than excited, but needed to get out the door. I had to work to identify my happiness factor, which was that I was nice and warm.
Individually, I love all the pieces I chose to put on, but the cumulative effect left me feeling underwhelmed.
In looking at the pics tonight I think I can wear gray near my face, so that is a plus. Another time I think I will put a blouse under the long vest and put on a pair of tall boots, to see if that helps.
I welcome all thoughts and suggestions. I am going back to study up on Angie’s other 24 tips before choosing a work outfit for tomorrow.
