STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Black Beauty

June 4th, 2015 at 2:00am

It doesn’t matter if summer is around the corner, this Fashionista is not afraid to wear an all-black outfit any time of the year.

Black is timeless. Black is simple. Black is beautiful. This Fashionista’s monochromatic outfit stood out to me on the bright sunny campus of Santa Clara University. Of course, I had to pull out my camera and document this with a spontaneous photo shoot session.

Since the outfit is completely black, this gives the Fashionista a lot of room to express her creativity through other elements such as silhouette, layers, texture and so on. This Fashionista kept it light by wearing a thin cotton dress with a high-low hemline from Urban Outfitters. “I found it in the sale rack and it is one of my favorite pieces” this Fashionista told me. The dress also has a low back that allows the skin to breath and soak in the sun on a hot summer day. Instead of wearing a regular black bra under the dress, this Fashionista wore a black lace bralette with an extremely wide band to cover up. Not only does the lace add more detail to the all-black outfit, but it also adds a vintage tone to the entire look.

As for shoes, the Fashionista sticks to her color theme by wearing black platform sandals. These platform sandals are all the rage this season. They’re casual, yet they give you just enough height to still feel put together and glamorous, not to mention they’re also super easy to walk in. So you can still look cute while trekking across campus to your next class.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “This is my take on the perfect sundress. Sundresses don’t always have to be floral or colorful, the most important thing is that it makes you feel good, and I always feel good in black.”
