LAYERS


WEARING: Oak + Fort Jacket, Melissa Araujo Crop Top, Club Monaco Dress Shirt & Sunnies, No Brand Culottes, Alexander Wang Marion Bag, The Bound Cuffs by THPS and Vans Sneakers.

Here is to another week all dressed in black, I love my whites, but lately I have been in a more practical mood; black seems to be the right choice for the weather. I would normally wear this with skinny jeans or leather leggings, instead I opted for the culottes. It gives a whole other vibe to the look. I am channeling the masculine, and oversized side of things.

Sometimes when you wear all black it can be hard to tell which piece is which, and where one starts and the other ends. I am wearing one of our Linear Crop top's over a long sleeve dress shirt, to maximize my Summer items even during Winter, and as we transition into Spring. I can't afford to buy something new all the time, if you are like me this is a good styling exercise for your creative skills. Just work with items you already have in your closet, and see what combinations you can come up with. Let me know if it works for you. In case you missed have a look here how I styled the same crop top this past Summer.

  17. This look is just perfect, i'm very much drawn into all black myself lately. Lots of people expect it to be boring, while i consider it to be more interesting and challenging.

    1. I agree Eline, some people think it is easier to dress in black when in fact it can be a great styling challenge, I personally love all black and only recently in the past year ish started wearing more whites and greys xx

  27. I love it when people 'recycle' their clothes and wear them all year round. Honestly, even if I had enough money to wipe the proverbial bottom with it, I still wouldn't buy a ton of clothes, it's irresponsible. And it's more fun if you have to come up with new combinations. And your culottes are perfect!

  29. Oh! Thank you for stopping by my blog! I had lost you for a while now and couldn't find you anywhere. Groan. Have fixed all that so I won't loose touch with you again gorgeous. Love this outfit. Black is always a good idea and the whole pieces blending in together is what makes me adore all black get ups more. It takes a well trained eye to decipher each piece but that's the fun of it all. The mystery even.
