ESSENTIAL: BLACK

WEARING: Carin Wester Coat, Zara Turtleneck, H&M Pants, Adidas Superstars, Rachael Ruddick Le Trop Bag, 8 Other Reasons Rings & THP Shop Cuffs.

From season to season, year after year, black pieces have always been the essential building blocks of my style. It is no secret that I am a fan of black. It is a reliable section of your closet that never lets you down. For any occasion or crisis, black will fufill your needs, make you look effortless and fashionable. It is my go-to option - no doubt, it is also liberating; to free yourself from all the over designs, prints (and all the trends that are attached with colour-season). I have tested some other muted colours, but I do have to say: no matter how "far" I stray, I always come back to black and its infinite possibilities. What is your go-to colour when it comes to building your wardrobe and making styling decisions?

  9. YES to cold weather gear including huuuuge warm neck pieces :: turtlenecks, scarves, fur stoles, mmhmm !!! also, yr photos/poses are w o r k i n g.

    as to your question abt go-to color :: i'm very with you here on the essential nature of black. it really never fails. other than that, I have found that for me personally, pale blues & pinks brighten my day & my outfit, in general.

  20. Essentials always, always equal black. I'm form Melbourne and black is just what we wear, not because it's uniform or because everyone else wears it but because we understand how truly amazing this colour is. And even though we all wear it, none of us ever look the same.
