This week, we’re featuring Yolanda Black of Friends are Fashion.

"Searching for the appropriate staples each season can be tricky, but after coming across 'Palettes: Cypress + Steel Gray + Navy' in the fall special issue of InStyle Your Look, I was inspired to invest in a piece like this green leather skirt from Zara. To style it, I paired my new purchase with a solid blue turtleneck and black heels for an effortless feel." Get inspired by more InStyle readers we ♥ in our gallery.
