Black Is the New Black

As the saying goes, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it" and that certainly is true when it comes to the fashion world's love affair with the colour black. Regardless of the season, it has become a permanent fixture in many wardrobes and more recently it has made its fair share of appearances on the runways of New York Fashion Week. We've always been team bright prints and colour, but lately we've found ourselves gravitating towards head to toe black ensembles. So we thought it was only fitting to show you guys how to style an outfit that is predominately black without looking morbid. Here goes...
 



 
Our favourite pieces from this outfit have to be the skirt and shoes, both of which are from Paris Coming. Asymmetrical skirts are all the craze at the moment, but we liked that this one is a bit different from the ones we've seen. The gold zipper detailing and leather trim adds a grungy rocker chick meets LA It Girl vibe which we love. Now the shoes are something else! We've been dying for a pair of peep toe booties and these are perfect. The heel is slightly chunkier which makes walking a lot less of a chore while the suede material is a great way to mix and play around with different textures.
 
Now the number one key to pulling off a black on black outfit are the accessories. Gold or silver jewellery is a great way to break up the colour while still staying true to your black palette.
 
Are you partial to a head to toe outfit?!

  7. Nice style inspiration,
    but maybe too cold for the transition to fall.
    But black is never a bad idea :)

    Take care,
