Jewelry: architectural, chunky silver; geometric Lucite; simple pearls; a plain-faced watch
A solid-colored sheath is brilliant in more ways than one: It's versatile, stands out without screaming, and complements every body type. This silk cotton boatneck version has slenderizing off-center gathers and an exposed back zipper. Balance the brightness with neutral accessories, like sinuous silver earrings, a horn cuff, a black-and-white clutch, and two-tone wedges.
Bags: small, structured, unadorned purses; handheld clutches
Shoes: clean-lined, classic boots; ballerina flats; sculptural heels
Extras: opaque stockings; leather gloves; a headband
