Black is NEVER Basic

Some people think the color black is so basic, but in my opinion when you style it the right way it is one of the most bold and impactful colors in the spectrum. Chic, classy, and timeless are the words that best describe this ensemble. Sweet and to the point! A double breasted blazer with…
