Chicago has been missing the sun for quite a few days. The sky always seems to be covered in clouds and the rain is never far behind. April showers should be over. It is time for the warm spring days. May needs to bring the sunshine. I am tired of not being able to wear cute spring outfits because I always have to worry about the rain. I tend to wear dark colors when the weather is gloomy. This Fashionista seems to think the same way.
This Fashionista is wearing an all-black ensemble. She layers a black turtleneck underneath her leather jacket. On the bottom she pairs her basic leggings with motorcycle boots accented with gold buckles. She also has a basic black cross-body bag. Each of the pieces of her outfit are classic and would be able to be paired with many different outfits. I think that everyone should invest in a few black staples because it always matches.
Her all-black outfit is the perfect backdrop for her gold statement necklace. It really makes your eye go directly to it. I love when the first thing you notice about an outfit is the oversized jewelry. I think that a statement necklace will go with just about any outfit. I love the look of big necklaces. I have quite a few and I get so much use out of them. The Fashionista’s necklace adds a glitter of gold that anyone could use in their outfit.
