If you want to shake up the basic black look for an interview, Adam recommends wearing a dress. "This is a jersey dress here and it's comfortable. It has pockets. I paired it with a long night cardigan," he says. "You put it on. If you get cold, you take it off."

Want to define your waist? Add a wide belt. Patent leather works great for day and night.

A basic black dress is great for any time of day. If you have an event later and can't get home to change, just swap your cardigan with a fabulous jacket. Adam suggests a silk jacket in a plum color.

It's up to you whether you want to go bare-legged or wear hose. But if you wear hose, make sure to match it to the color of your shoes. "There's a lot of hose because it's practical. You're cold. You really don't want to have a bare leg all the time." His favorite picks for hose? Donna Karan, Hue and Wolford.
