i changed up the format a bit with this post (because i downloaded some fancy new computer programs and wanted to play with them). Instead of modeling the clothes i own and cutting my head off, i took pictures from online shopping sites and cut the models' heads off!
i hope this helps, and if you still need help choosing an outfit/putting things together feel free to post any questions in the comments section.
DO: go for winter white
most people (especially in the nyc area) tend to wear black when they're going out and getting dressed up. if you want to stand out from the crowd and still look classy, go for winter white. it's the color of the season so you shouldn't have trouble finding a winter white top or dress when you go shopping.

DO: wear black with a twist
if you do decide to wear black, make it interesting. try a leather skirt or pants, or a dress with leather piecing. as you know from some of my earlier posts, sequin shorts are one of my new favorite things. so to me, they're a definite "do". jcrew also makes a wonderful sequin tank that would look great with a skirt or a pair of jeans. instead of regular black pumps, go for black wedges. go with a shift style dress that has a little character to it to get a classy but unique look. if your outfit is somewhat simple, carry a fun sequin bag or clutch.
