Sometimes you just know. Imagine walking around campus and then spotting a Fashionista so stylish walking your way that the phrase, “It Girl” instantly pops into your mind. Their style has that extra magic, the X-factor and the wow effect, and it inspires you to try something new with your wardrobe. And while wearing black head-to-toe normally means you’re trying to blend in, this week’s stunning Fashionista look really, really, stood out to me.
I spotted her walking with her partner, also dressed in a rad outfit, and ran up to her to ask to take her picture. Normally, when you see someone decked out in a head-to-toe black outfit, their entire look just gets mushed together and each piece gets lost in the black. But this Fashionista’s outfit was definitely not washed out. Even though all of her clothes were dark, because each piece was made from a different fabric, the unique textures of each piece meant they could still stand out individually. If you want to cross over to the dark side this winter, try an all-black outfit made up of different materials like this Fashionista. Wearing leather, or ‘wet look’ items, like this Fashionista’s skinnies, will help dark items stand out in your outfit because these particular fabrics are shiny and will attract light; and therefore attention!
Plus, how chic does her outfit look paired with minimal accessories, a statement bag and that amazing lip colour? This is definitely a girl who knows less is more. If you want to get your Sasha Fierce on like this Fashionista, try tough-looking fabrics like leather, which looks great on pants, jackets and as detailing on collared shirts. For a touch of vampy glam, choose gold chunky rings and a bold lipstick like “Lickable” from MAC Cosmetics. And don’t forget, a femme fatale Fashionista needs a pair of kick-ass kicks and those amazing cutout leather boots really take the cake.
