This Black Dress, Black Ankle Strap Sandal Outfit Is Blowing Up On Pinterest

You knew I had to write about it after the number of re-pins on Pinterest started hitting ridiculous levels...

People are loving this look and I can see why. It's the kind of outfit you put on in no time flat because hey, it's all black and you barely have to expend a brain cell when coming up with the ensemble. But there's more than the monochromatic aspect here...it just works. Why? It takes a basic black dress and with just a few key accessories ("CC" or no Chanel), turns into something 'smart.' 

Putting finishing touches on a look always stumps my clients and for good reason. It's easy to go overboard or just feel like nothing is working. Hence using these outfits as inspiration on how to take what you have in your closet and re-create it into something that works for you (read: that you feel good walking out the door in).

Here's the look of the moment:
