When it comes to the two colors black and beige, one word comes to many minds, boring. However, take a page out of actress Alicia Vikander’s book and wear pieces with unique detailing to add visual interest. This will make your look fun and also bring a little of your personality to it. Alicia Viklander shows us how to wear black and beige and it is certainly not boring!
Not So Basic Black Sweater
A black sweater is an essential staple. I think no one can fight me on that. However it need not be the old stand-by crew neck. We have seen black worn on many celebrities, but this sweater by Endless Rose has tiered ruffle sleeves that takes your average sweater and brings it to the next level. It’s also the perfect piece to dress up. Think of pairing it with a tweed skirt and a pair of pumps on a night out.
Must Have Black Jeans
Every woman owns a pair of black jeans, right? If you don’t, this pair by Gap will become your new go-to! With a mid-rise waist and girlfriend fit, these jeans are perfect for women over 40. They hug your curves in all the right places. Roll the cuff at the hem to show a little more ankle and lengthen your legs.
One shoe that I often feel women don’t think about purchasing is a beautiful beige loafer. It really is the perfect way to take a very fall/winter look and transition it into the spring season. It adds a lightness to the look and is also the comfortable for walking around any city. This pair by Aldo is the perfect neutral for any Spring outfit! Really amp up this look with a box crossbody bag. This style is on trend and therefore becomes a statement piece for the entire ensemble. This Rebecca Minkoff bag has gorgeous embellished detailing and will give your outfit that pop of “WOW” everyone wants.
Throw on your Ann Taylor cateye sunglasses, and your black and beige look is anything but boring.
