On the Street - Basic Black with Bright Accents

One of the things I don't like about the cold weather (and there are many, I assure you), is that many people abandon the cheerful colours they have been wearing all summer and adopt a warm cocoon of dark colours, primarily black, to shield themselves against the elements.  As most of my winter coats are black, I can sympathize with this tendency, but I try to do what this young woman has done, which is to add some brightly coloured accessories to offset the black.  The bright red belt and shoes are a fun splash of colour, and I love the purple glasses against her dark hair.
