There is nothing more timeless than the color black. As my friend Coco Chanel once said, “Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all.” Wearing black will always be one of my favorite monochromatic looks. I cannot help but swoon over ensembles which consist of contrasts of black leather accessories paired with a great pair of black skinnies.
I caught this Fashionista strolling out of my class and could not help but fall in love with her all-black look. This week’s Fashionista knew just how to accessorize her all-black attire with a scarf, black patent leather shoes and a classic Chanel Grand Shopper Tote bag.
Although in theory sporting all-black can be a little lazy in terms of trying to match a look, the accessories which supplement the outfit are essential to making the ensemble unique.
This Fashionista’s pair of loafers are my favorite piece in this ensemble (aside from the beautiful Chanel tote). The patent leather shoe is perfect in every way in that they give the look a little bit more dimension with the reflection from the shoe, but they do not detract from the rest of the look. When wearing such a classic bag, one needs to keep the idea of simplicity in mind so that the look doesn’t feel overdress, especially if its just for class! paired with a little bit of color from her scarf, this Fashionista knew just how to keep her look unique, while still rocking all-black attire.
Spotted: Loeffler Randall’s fall 2013 shoe collection has a great pair of loafers!
