FASHION FROM ABROAD: Poetic Black

FASHION FROM ABROAD: Poetic Black

There’s no other color that says jet-setter more than classic black—it’s a universal language.  When living in a city like London, filled with sophistication and that certain “je ne sais quoi,”  fashions may vary but there’s no doubt that all fashion-forward Londoners share a common love-affair with black.  This style-guru implements the powerful color combination of black and white like a pro. Ashlee wears a black and white striped sweater, perfect for the high tea, class or pre-dinner drinks.  She dresses up the look with a snazzy statement necklace, which is sure to bring this sweater from day to night.  This necklace is great for any occasion and gives the look a clean and classy look.

Ashlee incorporates a current hot trend that is sure to be seen on the streets of Kensington and Shoreditch alike: leather pants.  Slightly rocker yet fully sharp, these pants are a great addition to this already fashion-forward outfit.  Ashlee finishes this look off with black booties, keeping the bottom half of her outfit monochrome.  As we’ve seen from today’s fashion forward ladies, such as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, monochrome is all the rage.  Her leather pants have awesome detailing at the knee, adding an extra element of intrigue to the look.  The combination of her dainty and polished sweater with her leather pants keeps the leather pants less biker and more professional and sleek.  Now that you know you’re looking London chic, feel free to jump on the Tube, your bike or your Vespa, and “paint the town black.”
