The Balenciaga Fall 2017 RTW collection is full of structured shapes, bold colors and patterns and - to my delight - colored tights. Despite now dressing pretty much exclusively in black, colored tights remind me of my childhood spent wearing yellow and orange. While they aren't my style, I love when others wear them, because nothing brightens a day like seeing a flash of yellow in a sea of grey. 

So, let's get started on breaking down these looks, so that no matter your budget, somewhere an all-black-everything kind of girl can live vicariously through you.

Perfect for the office, this teal midi will add a pop of color to your workwear without being completely distracting. A black turtleneck and tights will make sure you look professional, and adding a cuff bracelet gives the look a little bit of a fashion edge.

For anyone who can think of nothing worse than wearing a dress on a night out, a pair of colorful trousers and heels can be a great alternative to jeans. Add a cropped sweatshirt and a clutch bag and you've got a going out look that's both stylish and comfortable.

This is one of my favorite looks of the entire collection. To recreate it, pair a patterned tea dress with mustard tights, some serious jewelry, and an oversized white bag.
