A-line skirts are a great option for balancing your bust with your hips. They can do wonders for Pear, Diamond, Inverted Triangle and Straight body shapes. For Pear and Diamond body types, the A-line skirt balances the widest part of your hip without adding more volume. For Inverted Triangle and Straight body shapes, it can add just a bit of volume to create a waist.
It’s a great must-have for every closet! And it's emerald... the color of the year :)

If not styled correctly, a simple black dress is just a plain, boring piece of clothing. But, with the right accessories, it can be not only amazing for evening, but also to many other occasions. Here are a few tips on how to style that black dress that you most likely already have in your wardrobe.
1) Who said black and brown can't be mixed?You can have your plain black dress styled with a brown bag, belt or even shoes. And it can look amazing!
2) Just because your dress is black you don't have to look like you're going to a funeralBlack is a neutral color that goes with any bright color you like. Or even patterns. While you're wearing your black dress, style it with color, and balance it with a splash of color. You can go from vivid pink, to red, or even light blue... as long as it's a bright color you'll look amazing. This color can be in your shoes, clutch or bag or even in your bracelets, earrings, etc.
Just beware not to use many different colors, because if not done correctly it may be a styling disaster. A recipe that usually never fails is to wear 3 different colors at a time, where one should be neutral (eg: black, white, brown, grey), and the other two have to match. If you don't know which colors match and which don't match, take a look at this post, and read about the color wheel.
3) Don't be afraid to layer itDresses can be layered. In fact, the outfit can look awesome with some layers. A good trenchcoat, coat, or even biker jacket (depending on the dress, off course) can be a true plus to the whole outfit. And the jacket doesn't have to be black. It can have color or even a pattern. Get wild with it.
What about you? How do you style your simple black dress?
