Fashion From Abroad

There is nothing chic-er that an all black outfit. Monochromatic black just cannot be beat. It will never go out of style and has remained a beacon of class and edge for decade upon decade. Also, it is personally one of my favorite looks so I may stand slightly biased.

When a black on black outfit is perfected it is jaw dropping and show stopping. This is exactly the case for this week’s Fashionista. Now I must say, putting together the perfect all-black outfit takes more that just layering on black garments. No, no my friends. There is much more to it. The balance is a hard thing to attain but my advice is to always mix in a metallic and, in most instances, a print. This Fashionista’s floral graphic tee is a prime representation of what I am talking about. The flowers and butterflies add just a slight bit of color without seeming too childish, while the skull keeps the edge in focus.

The metallic buckle fixtures on her shoes and zippers on her shoulder bag break up the color just enough to make it not overbearing, while also highlighting her cute accessories. Also, paring the outfit with a couple of assisting dark colors does not hurt either if you’re not feeling the complete black look. This Fashionista’s bag has dark green panels in it alongside black ones. As well as she threw on a gray cardigan layer underneath her black leather jacket for some diversity. Regardless of how you style it, when black is involved, it is bound to be fierce.
