"Black and white dresses are everywhere, for every budget and perfect to go from cubicle to cocktail," says Morrison, who suggests packing a colorful punch with accessories like statement jewelry or heels. One of Morrison's footwear faves? Electric blue pumps. "Bright blue in particular works with every tone, height and weight," Morrison explains.
