Faux Fur & Flares

I kinda pride myself on binging you guys a million and one ways to wear a black outfit, but apologies to those of you who love colour, unfortunately there’s very little colour residing in my wardrobe right now.

To make a black outfit stand out a little more I like to add in some texture, in this instance this faux fur gilet.  It helps add a little depth to the look rather than it looking like one giant mass of flat black.  The silhouette of an all black outfit is equally as important, balancing out the top to bottom creates the overall shape of the look, and obviously we always want it to be flattering. Flares are the most flattering cut of jeans and when they are the right length they can make your legs appear endless (especially in black).

    I love this all black look – the gillet is gorgeous!

    I bought some Public Desire boots through your blog and wow they are just so nice!

    I agree with making a monochrome outfit interesting with textures. Also, yours is the 2nd instance in 2 days where I’ve heard the term “gilet”. You learn something new everyday!
