There’s no denying it: women love the color black. The little black dress, the black tights, black purses and the sexy black pumps are the first fashion choices when it comes to putting together perfect outfits. However, an all-black ensemble, although it looks stylish, it does need a touch of color. And the best way to do that in style is by adding pretty accessories like colored scarves.

We put together a fall outfit, perfect for a day at the office, a shopping trip or a date with your friends. It’s an all black look so we have also picked out a couple of scarves, all bright and colored, that will go perfectly with any all-black look, not just ours.

Have a look:

We have selected five key wardrobe pieces to create this all-black look:  a feminine dress that flatters all body types, the military jacket, polka dots tights, the military-inspired ankle booties and the chic black purse. This is a stylish outfit on its own but it does need a pop of color. For that, we have selected a series of scarves that we think would make perfect accessories to an all-black look.

Get the look:

Women’s Dolman Top Dress from Old Navy

Women’s Wool-Blend Cropped Military Jacket from Old Navy

Polka Dot New York Tights from

Studded Suedette Ankle Boots from Forever21

Steve Madden Amsterdam Large Dome Tote from

The scarves:

Butterscotch Infinity Ruffle Scarf

Purple Fancy Patchwork Scarf

Every time you feel like your outfit needs a pop of color, throw on a beautiful lively scarf. It will completely transform your look!

Effortless Elegance: The Ruffle Scarf

In Fashion Scarves, Get the Look, Women's Scarves on December 16, 2010 at 1:20 pm

Women often find themselves having difficulties in finding the perfect accessories. For example, every woman knows that when you’re having doubts about what to wear for a party, romantic dinner or special event, you resort to the famous little black dress and you’re set to go.  But how about accessorizing that LBD? Sure, you can opt for jewelry, but isn’t that what everybody else does? We have a better, less expensive and way more creative suggestion:  the ruffle scarf.

Why opt for a ruffle scarf?

It is not only a stylish and affordable accessory, but it is also the perfect way to dress up a little black dress by adding that much needed touch of color. Pair your LBD with a radiant, satin ruffle scarf for effortless elegance. Not to mention all the compliments you’ll be getting!

We’ll present you with two elegant LBD’s and two lovely ruffle scarves you can use to dress them up. No jewelry needed!

Look No.1: Let the ruffle scarf do the talking!

Take a classic, sleeveless, little black dress. Pair the dress with a light pink ruffle scarf to add a touch of color, put on a pair of sexy heels and your party look is complete!
