The colors of copper, black, dark grey, cream, and powder; silk dresses, fuzzy skirts, fur details; suits of pants and jackets or skirts are some of the pieces that attract attention at the first glance. The glitter in night outfits and the comfort in day outfits are in the foreground. A superb outlook is created through the use of accessories in daily outfits.
