Want & Have Outfit: No. 16


Black is always a fantastic idea in the winter, but I’ve found some simple, chic ways to dress it up, and this month, save some money. With new spring collections becoming available on February 1st, Reiss has slashed prices even further starting today – some items by 70%.  I couldn’t help myself as I now own their Eloise black tie front blouse. Very much oversized and blousy, it is perfect with slim-fitting jeans, trousers or a pencil skirt. Easy to dress up or down, I decided to style it for a weekend with bright matchstick denim from J.Crew (also on sale!), a classic black suede pump and a beautiful leopard tote that is drastically reduced.

By adding one trendy item that doesn’t break the bank, the other quality items shine even brighter and are subtly changed from season to season based on the ever-changing fashion trends and preferences.
