Diesel Black Gold took basic pieces and gave them a new edge with their pre-fall 2014 collection. Whether it was a pair of boots with studs, a leather jacket with a diagonal zipper or an asymmetrical chiffon top, this show reminded me that you can add a new aura to a simple garment.
I’ve learned that wearing monochrome and accessorizing is a very easy way to look put together and chic. All-black is a look that you could probably put together with items in your closet. I wore all-black with gold accents on my accessories. When it comes to accessories, sometimes a discreet amount of gold is better than an overwhelming goldmine of tacky costume jewelry.
Unless becoming a gypsy fortune teller is in your future, it will look more casually effortless with a subtle golden glow. I wore a pair of black ballet flats with gold chained ankles to complement the chains on my leather tote bag. A leather tote is a great investment if you’re carrying a decent amount of work around campus. I’ve definitely learned that I’m pretty clumsy/extremely accident-prone, and it is best for me to keep all my important belongings in one bag.
Simplicity is a word I’ve been trying to get acquainted with, although I still feel a little uneasy when I am told to downsize. Honest to goodness, I am making strides when it comes to my shopping choices. I wore my new black chiffon collared blouse tucked into a pair of high rise sailor shorts. This look is very easy when you’re in a hurry, just pair your basics with some detailed accessories.
