I wear the color black all-year-round, especially during fall and winter seasons. This weekend outfit was no exception. Since I knew I was going to attend a fashion show on the deck of a cruise ship, I opted to wear a maxi skirt over a maxi dress for extra warmth. I wore my go-to faux leather biker jacket and studded crossbody bag for an edgier look.

Frances’ styling tips:

  • For an illusion of separate pieces in a look, wear a top (i.e., a tee or sweater), or a skirt over your dress. The skirt should be the same length, or longer, as the dress.
  • Add texture to your outfit for more dimension, especially if your entire outfit is in the same color. For instance, a texture skirt over a basic dress, like I did in this all black look.
