All Black

leather_pantsBlack is a staple in my wardrobe, which becomes super obvious as soon as the weather gets cooler. I think it’s really easy to throw things together if most of my clothes are in various shades of black and gray, then I can wear them all together or add a pop of color with a bright sweater or shoes. It makes getting dressed really easy in the morning. I also happen to really love all black outfits, they somehow look way cooler than if I were to wear the same pieces in different colors. I think the key is to have a lot of basic pieces that have some kind of interesting detail to keep them from being too boring.

leather_pants7This outfit is pretty simple- a tunic over leggings with a sweater thrown over to keep me warm, but I love how the nice fabrics and details elevate it to a “look” instead of looking like I’m wearing my pajamas. This chiffon tunic has a slight high-low hem and fun button details on the shoulders. I spent quite a bit of time looking for leather leggings that weren’t super shiny and I was so happy when I found these. While leather leggings aren’t the most practical things to own, I think they’re fun to wear when I want a little bit of edge and these ones are much more comfortable than I was expecting. I love the charcoal color and waterfall shape of this cardigan and I like how the thick knit looks with the chiffon and leather.

ootd all blackI finished this look with a bright lip, hat, and booties. NARS’ Schiap lipstick is quickly becoming my favorite “winter bright lip.” It’s just a little darker than my usual neon brights and the matte finish really makes the color pop.

    I too love all black outfits – those are my winter staple! You look absolutely adorable in that darling black hat. And your pink lipstick shade adds the perfect pop of color. Great ensemble all the way around.

    This is such a cute outfit, it’s totally something I would wear. It’s so true how mixing textures give an outfit so much more interest even if the colours are similar.

    All black is my go-to as well, it’s so easy and it always looks classic and stylish. And I just bought a sweater very similar to yours at H&M! :)
