A trend I’ve been noticing around campus is the monochromatic outfit. I know it’s nothing new to be dressed in all-black, but it’s a refreshing style to see and something I enjoy. Necklaces have been worn throughout time, but bolder, eye-catching styles have been seen more on the streets than before. It seems like Fashionistas/os are trying to find more unique jewelry pieces that really show off their style and are taking the time to style them right. This Fashionista definitely chose correctly with this statement piece.
Black is the go-to color for most people. I myself have a fair share of black, white and neutral pieces in my collection because they’re so easy to wear. Black is versatile and can be elegant, edgy and simple — the possibilities keep going. What really makes this Fashionista stand out is her bold necklace. Even though the necklace itself is large, it’s simple in design. What makes it even more interesting is that the bottom chain is actually just a woven rope made of gold thread! The leather T-shirt adds edge and a unique quality to her outfit. This inspired me to find the perfect leather top for this season. The black suit continues to her toes with the booties giving another touch of gold. The minimalistic style of the outfit with the accessories she chose made a chic, edgy look.
If you love this look like I do, remember this Fashionista kept it simple in color and accessories. Bold necklaces like this one are becoming popular, such as this silver style from NASTY GAL or a different take from ASOS. You can never go wrong with black for a monochromatic outfit, but don’t be scared to go with a color. This simple black leather tank from ASOS is a great spring and summer piece to add to your closet.
