ALL IN THE DETAILS: Gilded As Charged

What easier way to look fabulously chic than to throw on all-black? I’m not sure there is one, look at those french girls in their effortless looks strutting around looking all cool. There is just something about an all-black ensemble that brings out my inner super model. But on the other hand, an all-black look can fall flat and not stand out in a crowd, which if you’re taking the effort to look nice, who wants to blend in? Not this girl! Though there is such an effortlessness to an all-black look, your go-to throw and go, sometimes you want to add a little extra spice to that look. Do not fear my trendy humans, the key to keeping that look fierce is all about those details.

This Fashionista pumped things up a notch with the subtle gold detailing in her jacket, bracelets, sunglasses and those seriously killer earrings. Can we talk about that ravishing lip color real quick? To die for, it just brings a level of complete chicness to the look for this vampy fabulous model vibe that I am all about. But back to that black and gold combo, the simple pops of gold keep things interesting and allow the classic shapes of the pieces to really stand out. Wearing a classic silhouetted jacket with this interesting detail allows you to be a little bolder, while still maintaining the timelessness of the piece. When you have an all-black outfit it all just boils down to those little details, like with this Fashionista’s accessory choices. All that is necessary are some fun bracelets, classic aviators and statement earrings to bring this look to superstar status.

The best part of this look? Keeping it simple allows all of that sass to take center stage even more than usual. So throw on your all-black look and prepare to let your inner gilded goddess work it!

How To: Look for key pieces with interesting detail. Like a black jacket or vest, if you’re feeling yourself, with gold zipper detailing that’ll add a modern touch to the classic style and have you strutting the streets looking totally fabulous.
