SLIP IT ON: Layer a black slip dress over a tissue-thin polo neck. Add decorative flats and a velvet smoking jacket.
VISUAL INTEREST: Give black the edge by mixing Victoriana lace with feather accents and second skin leathers.
DARE TO BARE: Balance sheer fabrics with high necklines and long sleeves. Pair with a midi skirt and overthe-knee boots for cabalistic charm.
LEATHER WEATHER: Segue the darker months in style with an all-weather leather trench.
