With the chaos of everyday life, what better way to save time than to skip outfit changes? While I am an avid fan of color, you can never go wrong with a classic black on black outfit. This monochromatic ensemble effortlessly evokes a sense of sophistication, which can easily be taken from day to night. The slightly sheer button up with an embellished collar is both fun enough to go on a shopping trip yet refined enough to wear to dinner with the girls. Though black on black looks are sometimes abused as a scapegoat to make sure everything matches, this Fashionista’s styling lets us know that this was definitely not the case. The choice to opt for a slightly sheer, embellished top over a classic black blouse was both bold and fabulous. With so many runway shows inundated with sheer garments and embellishments, this look is perfectly on trend. The sheerness of the top works to soften the look, while the jewels on the collar add a glamorous femininity.
Since the top is the standout piece of this outfit, this Fashionista keeps the rest simple and pairs it with black leggings and black peep-toe wedges. The slim fit of the leggings versus the looseness of the top is a wonderful play on proportions. The simplicity of this ensemble is tied together with a sleek top knot. One of my favorite hair trends this season, a top knot is a quick, easy solution to a bad hair day. It’s also a great way to keep your hair out of your face during hot, sticky afternoons and cold, windy nights.
