ALL IN THE DETAILS: Black On Black On Black

October 23rd, 2015 at 2:10am

The phrase “black is the new black” says it all. Black simply never gets old. I can always count on this color to make me look chic and put together. However, in order to mix up these monochromatic outfits, I always focus on my accessories and the textures of the fabrics I am pairing together.

This Fashionista utilizes this trick perfectly in her black on black ensemble. She is wearing a black turtleneck sweater with black leather pants. I love the contrast of the soft cashmere material with the edginess of the bottoms. By mixing soft and hard clothing pieces, you are instantly making your look more captivating. Fur is back on-trend for the fall season, the perfect texture to pair in a monochromatic look.

Accessories, like the ankle boots that this Fashionista is wearing, are perfect for fall and pull together the look by showing a little skin. Ankle boots help to make your legs look longer (and who doesn’t want that?) when you roll up the hem of the pants to show a little leg. When bundled up in layers of clothing during the fall, showing a little skin can instantly add sex appeal and femininity.

My favorite aspect of this Fashionista’s look is her bag. The light blue leather is a trendy color while still keeping the outfit fairly neutral. Not only is this bag super sophisticated and unique, but it also converts into a backpack. Every fashion icon is sporting these backpack purses this season.

Lastly, this outfit would not be complete without simple accessories. The rose gold watch and gold-toned aviator sunglasses pull this look together. Metallic tones never go out of style and can be used to glamorize any outfit. If you are feeling bold, mix different metals together, such as silver and rose gold. Keep your earrings and necklace one metal and your rings and bracelets the other metal.

How To: In order to recreate this look on yourself, be sure to wear the same color clothing pieces. Do not be afraid to go out of your comfort zone and try a different color scheme such as gray or camel. Gray monochromatic outfits were seen all over the runway for the fall season. Accessorize with metallic tones and a killer bag and you are set.
