All Black + Pop of Taupe

sexy prom dresses

All black for your fall outfits doesn’t have to be boring.

*Will this outfit work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1′ 143lbs. I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.

Fall outfits go monochromatic

Sometimes I just like to dress simply. One of the easiest ways to do this in fall especially is to just wear all of one color. When I wear all black like this, I add a pop of color or a pop of neutral to keep the outfit interesting. I do this with a skinny taupe cross body bag and chunky taupe ankle booties. What’s your go to for fall outfits when you’re wanting to just run out the door?
