If there’s one color combination you can never go wrong with, it’s the forever timeless pairing of black and white.
To that end, Arrow leading lady Emily Bett Rickards was well on her way toward a classically chic achromatic look at the CW Network’s 2015 Upfront Presentation.
Emily Bett Rickards, or EBR as she’s affectionately known on many a Arrow fansite, paired a Tibi ‘Agathe’ strapless jumpsuit ($695) in cream with black accessories including a black leather belt and Schutz ‘Aranzazu’ black suede pumps.
As classic and familiar as the black and white palette is, that doesn’t mean ‘familiar’ has to equal ‘boring’.
Emily’s ‘Agathe’ jumpsuit maintains a fashion forward flair due to a unique silhouette that’s fitted through the waist then flares into a pair of wide-leg pants that almost doubles as a skirt.
The jumpsuit is eye catching enough on its own that Emily’s addition of a visually heavy leather belt borders on unnecessary, and is just a bit too focus pulling.
Instead, some type of statement necklace or a pair of oversized earrings would have taken Emily Bett Rickards’ outfit from CW Network Upfront standout to undeniable fashion knockout.
Leather belt or no, Emily’s jumpsuit remains a chic little number that’s a great alternative to the typical red-carpet dress.
