This is such a high fashion look, and Ruth pulls it off effortlessly. She lets the dress take center stage by pairing her black pants with simple black heels, a black cuff and black clutch. The black accessories provide contrast to the pink of the dress, but don’t distract from the centerpiece of the outfit. The dress itself makes a big splash with the bright color and has just enough going on with the lace panel at the top. Ruth’s lack of a necklace and earrings makes it stand out even more.

A hot pink coat is the centerpiece of this look, as opposed to the gown that Ruth is rocking. This girly coat with a dress shape is the perfect cover-up to a pair of leather leggings, as well as a sheer top with a lace panel that echoes the one on Ruth’s dress. Black riding boots are the perfect complement to this look for day, and simple black heels like Ruth’s go just as well for night. A studded black clutch completes the look and adds a little edge to the girliness of the lace top and pink coat.
This look is perfect for the winter season, combining the customary winter black with a splash of color to brighten things up. The coat is a statement piece all on its own, but it can be removed to show off a sleek black lace and leather look that can be worn day or night with just a few tweaks! Ruth’s red lips were a daring complement to her pink dress, and a red lip would definitely work with this outfit as well, along with a classic nude. Slick back your hair for a super-sleek look, or go a little girly with some bouncy curls, and get ready to get complimented!
