While an all-black ensemble is an eternally chic staple in any Fashionista's outfit repertoire, the look can get a bit tired after awhile, especially if it's an excuse for laziness and the wearer didn't feel like accessorizing that morning. A blazer and skinny jeans can only be paired so many times, after all. Thankfully, this week's Fashionista raises the bar on the black-on-black fallback by bravely mixing multiple trends with strong accessories for a look that stands out in all the right ways.
Let's talk about the pants, because drop-crotch bottoms have been getting a lot of flack lately. I've been seeing harem pants on many a “trends we wish would die” list, but I think they're a chicer, much more comfortable alternative to leggings, bottoms that have most assuredly seen their day. To dress up the relaxed feel of the pants, this Fashionista picked a pair of drop-crotch bottoms with peplum-like detailing around the waist to emphasize her figure and echo the wavy pattern of the studs on her leather jacket. The jacket is a standout piece on its own thanks to the studding on the bodice and sleeves, and because its cropped style ends at the top of her pants, she looks perfectly proportionate. Meanwhile, the sweetheart neckline and ruching on her tank top add a bit of sex appeal to the outfit while still allowing for the pants and jacket to stand out.
Keeping in line with her ladylike-meets-edgy aesthetic, this Fashionista went with a pair of delicate but sturdy cap-toe court shoes to balance the relaxed draping of her pants, whilst her fingers display a claw-like hand chain that matches her fierce pointed manicure. This Fashionista proves that all-black and boring don’t need to be synonymous, so follow her lead and you’ll never leave the house looking snooze-worthy again.
