Angie's ensemble, "Hard Edge with a Soft Touch" is one that stuck in my mind. It's a mostly black look, with some softness added with color or feminine style. I recalled it today, as I put together this outfit. Encouraged by Torontogirl on my thread here, I not only wore the controversial skirted leggings again, but I am posting the outfit for you here. ;)
The outfit (worn to work--yes, as in, skirted leggings to work): Black knit tunic with ghost horse print in shades of gray and asymmetric hem and seams (made by me); black skirted leggings (Eileen Fisher); light gray scarf; black distressed suede tall boots (Donald J. Pliner, Devi 2); long black coat (Gallery); espresso and black satchel (Joy Gryson, Natalie).
I had planned to wear my long gray cardigan over this outfit, but I didn't like the look. And I didn't want to cover up the tunic so much. So I went with the scarf for warmth instead.
Thanks for looking! And, my joking about controversy notwithstanding, I welcome your thoughts and suggestions!
