Black to Basics

by DressWithPurpose

It’s Triple Treat Tuesday, black to basics

My Purpose: Today its black to basic, with a basic black pencil skirt and just wanted to show you how you can take a piece from your wardrobe and how you can wear it casual, for business and for a fun night out.   Everyone has to have a basic black skirt in their wardrobe, I have several (lol).  So for the casual outfit I threw on a long sleeve t-shirt, denim jacket with a black leather hobo bag. For a more office friendly outfit I picked up this fun striped yellow sweater and structured purse.  For the night look, I tried to make it so you could just take a sparkly top with you to the office, a cute evening bag and some fun bracelets and do a quick change from office to night.  Hope this inspires you to find something fun to do with that basic black skirt. Choose everyday to “Dress With Purpose”
