I love color but I am a firm believer in the notion, when in doubt go black. Black is a color that is appropriate for any occasion and always creates an instant, chic silhouette. Lord knows you should love your body just the way it is but the fact that it magically slims you down and accentuates our long bodies is enough for me to rock it and rock it often.

Here I paired a tall, clasic bodysuit with a good ol walk in the store and buy it midi skirt from H&M. It has an amazing texture to it that makes it stand out and also has my favorito...pockets! What is not to love?

And then there were the boots...

Don't hate me...

I couldn't find them anymore but you know I will keep my eye out for them or something close. They are thigh high's from Report but as you can see they fit like over the knee boots. We have talked about this before but remember...thigh highs are your friend.

Lastly, you need a little bling to break up the black and bring it all together. Enter the under $20 statement necklace from Forever 21. Ladies, a necklace can make or break an outfit. Choose wisely and don't go expensive. There are plenty of stores that carry great looking, inexpensive pieces that will look just as good as the overpriced jewels of the world.

So next time you don't know what to wear, have absolutely no time to get dressed or just want to rock a haute fit...dig in that closet for your black options and create a black on black look befitting of the queen that you are!
