The late days of October seem so perfectly made for the original calling card of chic…black.  From cat eye frames to thigh high boots, the options are plenty and oh so inspiring.  This turtleneck poncho is a look I live in all month long.  I love how easy and versatile it is.  I've been wearing mine with grey skinnies and this boot along with a a fresh feeling scarf like this one on casual days.  For a more elevated appeal, try pairing it with black cigarette pants, a killer heel and a glamorous pair of fur cuffed leather gloves.  Instantly you're a fresh take on vintage glam.  I bought this Chateau parka last year in black and wore it non-stop.  I love it so much that I'm considering getting it in another color this year (loving the heather grey and red!).  These sunglasses are still one of my favorite pairs (scoop yours up if you want them because they sell out fast).  What other classic black staple pieces are you loving now?  Let's share!
