Black Out

all black (1 of 1)

As I was trying this outfit out to see if I liked it I asked my boyfriend his opinion to which I got “it’s a lot of black” and that is perfectly fine with me. I have accepted that I think every piece looks best in dark colors. This color almost instantly makes a piece classic, edgy, or even mysterious.

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for color but I am just not drawn to it in the same way. I have been trying lately to add more color into my wardrobe even if it is muted tones. My style has been in a constant state of change throughout the past year. I am still trying to find what is truly me because right now I am drawn to so many different styles. This is getting harder since we are moving into the colder months and so many pieces are in darker tones. So for today I will leave you with this quote. Oh and happy Monday!

“I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker color.”

    I’m with you, Alicia! I love black and think most clothes look better in black. All black ensembles are so chic. This whole outfit is fab, but I especially like those ankle boots!

      Thank you! The boots are my favourite. Probably my favourite piece for all of Fall and Winter.

    I like the edginess of head to toe black. Especially the vest adds some interest as a third piece. Thanks for linking up with us on Start The Week Stylish!
