There are dark navy sequins mixed in with the black ones to animate the blackness. There is a closure at the side neck of a small hook and eye and a metal zipper on the left side. The silk chiffon scarf is original to the style and attached by hand at the neckline in the back . It could easily be removed if a different silhouette or accessorization is desired.
