Cheer Up Black & Charcoal with Some Sunshine
A black & gray print gets a summery lift if you add some cheery bright-yellow accents, especially shoes & a bag. I added printed cardi that compliments the dress with a graphic print is in the same tones but different enough to save the whole ensemble from being too matchy-matchy; the chartreuse hue in the sleeves also ties in with the yellow of the various accessories. But wait...a cardi for summer?! If you get stuck on the over-airconditioned subway or work in an all-too-common meatlocker'ishly freezing office building - you'll thank me.
