Most of the time I try to remind myself not wear too much black. But in reality, who can say no? Black is everything – bold, elegant, chic, etc., and works for any time of the year. It’s a versatile color. But in order to not accidentally create a flat all black look, I’ve concluded that choosing dark pieces that have a specific detail (whether subtle hint of color or small embellishments) will separate these dark pieces from others that are otherwise just plain black. Sheer black tees are the best item to wear and layer with, as the sheerness creates a hide-and-seek vibe that is risqué and mysterious. We all know how awesome coated jeans are, and this pair from J Brand is very flattering, it’s also NOT black. It’s actually an extremely dark purple (opalite) that you would only notice it close-up. The material is not too thick and hugs the legs so well, and the coated-ness of them is perfect yet shiny enough where it does look leather-like.
Draped leather jackets are incredible. They automatically create the illusion of you having on three layers as opposed to just one. In creating this illusion, draped leather jackets create movement and depth while displaying the softness of the leather.
I didn’t want to be all black from head-to-toe since it’s still the beginning of fall, so I used white as a highlight color for this outfit. To achieve this highlight effect, I paired my new favorite Jeffrey Campbell croc cut-out boots and Balenciaga bag with this almost all black outfit.
