It’s really impossible to say when enough black items in your wardrobe is enough. They’re just so practical, and usually you’ll get your money’s worth, merely from the opportunities on practically a daily basis that you can have to wear them! I simply love, and immediately bought this Origami Skirt with Exposed Zipper, $22.80, for its bondage-like design and contemporary exposed zipper. I can’t say that it’s work-appropriate since the skirt is pretty clingy, but is a definite knock-out to wear in the evening or on the weekends –pair it with some statement jewelry such as a bib necklace or oversized earrings, and off you go!

Via our friends at The Budget Fashionista:
Hate the name (do grown women really want to wear a bib?), love the accessory. Why? Because with something as bold as a “bib” necklace, you really don’t need much else to be eye-catching. Can you do it on the cheap? Would we bother writing about it if you couldn’t? Of couse not. We’ve rounded up a few budget pieces that are as fab as anything we’ve seen on the runway, for pennies on the dollar (or less) . . .
One caveat—whatever you do, be sure the neckline of your top is simple, simple, simple, and cut to frame the necklace or lay unobtrusively flat underneath—anything else will look sloppy and detract from what could be your signature piece for the season.
