Black Tunic and Boots

Mixing shades of black: do you do it?

Sometimes it can be a tricky task: do your black pants have to be the same shade as your shirt? I’ll be honest: I don’t think I really know the answer to that question. I just know that I very much enjoy wearing black on black on occasion, and this is one of those days. Black can be a perfect blank slate to brighten up with the addition of a properly placed accessory…like this scarf. I never would have thought this clearance purchase from Target a few years ago would get so much wear over time. Again and again I find uses for it in my wardrobe.

And here’s a question for you: how do you like to tie your scarves? I know there are about 1,000+ different ways to tie them, twist them, and shape them around your neck, but I seem to be stuck in a rut. I do the classic pass through loop style, and then I switch it up sometimes as I did today with a simple knot. Perhaps I need to start watching some tutorial videos on YouTube? Any you’d like to suggest? I need to start some research.

Oh, and if this tunic dress looks familiar, that’s because you’ve also seen it before! I styled it as a date night dress a few weeks back, but I also knew it would be perfect paired with leggings (and today: boots) for a casual everyday look. I think it turned out pretty well in the end! Hooray, versatility!
