casual mall outfit

Today, I’m wearing a casual mall outfit in my favorite black, white and red color combination. Funny enough, I never really realized how often I wore this color combination until I started blogging. I guess it goes to show…when you find something that works, you should stick with it. As the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it!”

Casual Mall Outfit

I like this casual mall outfit because of it’s interesting play on proportions. In fact, this cropped bolero black sweater (similar bolero here and here ) is one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe. The sweater adds a vertical line to the top, which could otherwise add width with its horizontal stripes.

Then, the shorter proportion of the sweater adds nice contrast to the side knot of the top.

I added my signature silver and stainless steel jewelry pieces to enhance the clean lines and casual feel of the outfit.

These soft red leather loafers and red purse add just the right color pop to this otherwise monochromatic outfit.

    I love red, black and white together and you always look so fabulous in it, Shellie! I have a leopard print bolero cardigan and I rarely wear it anymore because of the shape, but you are really making me want to pull it out and wear it again. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday! Hope to see you back this week.
