Girl About Town: Making Office Black Pop

Today's Girl About Town is a simple look (pulled off in that effortless chic manner we all strive for) that can otherwise go oh so wrong. Office black has long been a chic staple, but how do you make sure you don't look like you're on your way to an after-work funeral? With on-trend pops of color and sweet details.

Nice work random girl at Starbucks!


A shirt-dress version of the LBD is office appropriate and stylish with just a bit of pizzaz added in the accessories. Our Girl About Town adds glam to this simple look with her patent leather belt and shoes and matching turquoise purse and necklace.

The urge to brighten this outfit with bold colored shoes was resisted and the overlook is more put together for the effort. Black pumps can still be sexy, especially with trendy details like bows.

Wanna try this all black look with poppy accessories? Here's your starter kit...

Black Y-3 long-sleeve shirt dress (on sale now).


Turquoise bead and sequin necklace from Nordstrom.


Asos patent leather skinny belt with gold details (only $20!).


Marc by Marc Jacobs turquoise hobo/satchel purse.


Kate Spade Cammie Shoes with Bows (on sale now).
