I have a real passion for total black outfits that manage to look cool. There are some people, like this girl, that can wear a simple black dress with no accessories and make it become the most edgy outfit ever.
I was already planning to talk about all black outfits before and when I saw this girl the other day in Gent, at “De Invasie” (a big exposition of design and fashion from young Flemish designers. It was very cool and I’ll show you some pics later on), I thought it was the perfect occasion.
So I snapped a pic of her (as always I forgot to ask her name… But I left her my business card so I hope she reads this post!) and then drew her… In the end there’s no better way than showing you some images to talk about a look :-)
I think that the perfect accessories of this girl were her hair and her perfectly painted red lips. I think she looked extremely nice.
Black is my comfort zone too. And don’t believe people that tell you that it’s boring: it’s not true!
Just fold a bit the hem of your black skinny jeans, wear them with a black shirt and black ballet flats. Then add one accessory, just one: it can be a necklace, a bright lipstick, a particular hairdo, your favourite sunglasses, an elegant belt… Superchic.
Plus, total black is good in (almost) every occasion, is low maintenance and very often nice black items can be cheap in price but not in appearance. It’s a big time win.
I’m planning the purchase of a pair of skinny black jeans, but I still can’t because I’m still losing weight. Ohhh I already imagine a warmer day and me wearing them with my leopard flats (my imagination towards spring tends to run in cold days like this…)
And what do you think of total black? Boring or simply chic?
