Colourful tights are one way to 'jazz up' outfits
Undertaking to wear the same little black dress every day for a year might sound like a nightmare to most women, but there all sorts of ways to make it different every time.

Vibrant coloured tights were one way in which Sheena Matheiken spiced up the outfit during her year-long charity mission.

Raising funds for the Akanksha Foundation that helps send slum children in India to school, she wore the same black dress and used accessories to add colour and make it unique.

"I usually start dressing with a pair of stockings and then work out the rest of the outfit," she told CNN.

She wore things like hand-dyed tights and added funky shoes, bandanas and any other sort of accessory you can think of.

Matheiken designed the dress herself with a friend for the Uniform Project, and made seven copies to avoid having to wash it all the time, she said.
