Style Advice of the Week

Call me crazy, but I think there’s something so chic about a rainy day in a big city. The skies are dim and surroundings wet, but everyone is still out and about. The street lights have an exciting glow on the sidewalks that illuminates the dismalness. Instead of complaining about the rain, why not use it as an opportunity to put together a sleek, rainy day look like this Fashionista does?

Despite being extremely busy with Fashion Week approaching, this Fashionista is on top of her style game. Her outfit reaches a new level of sophistication with all black coloring and adds a luxe edge through a leather neck piece. The sunglasses make it Matrix-esque and the matte red lip is the only necessary accessory.

The subtle, yet effective leather top from Emanuel Ungaro is the ultimate selection to complete a sleek, black on black look. What makes it unique is how she layers it under her gray sweater and trench coat, bringing the black above the sweater’s neckline and adding to the chicness.

An item such as this might be difficult to pull off, but this Fashionista does it so flawlessly. The gold embellishment on the piece, that can be seen in the close-up photo, is completed with the sunglasses with gold accentuation. One might think sunglasses weren’t necessary on such a gloomy day, but the black and gold would not have been complemented so well without the added gold of the eyewear. Sunglasses are, in a way, unnecessarily necessary and can (and should) be worn whenever and wherever.

All of this together with a sleek, black trench, an optimal choice for outerwear on this particular day, and you have a killer rainy day get up. With a look like this, this Fashionista is ready to tackle anything, even the gloomiest of days. Try layering leather for yourself with a top like this Fashionista’s, or even with a jacket or crop top.
