STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Black Is The New Black

As we enter the chilly winter months neutral colors tend to be the fashion staple we see on the streets. Don’t get me wrong I am a huge fan of the neutral color palette, but sometimes it can look a little drab especially when the sky is cloudy and dull toned. However, when I saw this Fashionista’s outfit I thought it was anything but drab. I think the key here is her monochromatic pieces. Black is totally a staple color but doesn’t always tend to stand out. Rather than pairing a black shirt with blue jeans and brown boots, this Fashionista made her outfit stand out by keeping every piece black. I think what really pulled her outfit together was that she kept her accessories to one color as well. Her gold-wired sunglasses matched her vintage bangle, which even matched with the zipper on her jeans.

I love the outfit pieces she chose to pair together and how cohesive they are. Her turtleneck isn’t bulky and overpowering, which is so important when going for the monochromatic look. I think the key to her all black outfit is that there isn’t a statement piece in her outfit; rather, the color seems to act as a statement piece. I also love the length of her jeans as they help guide the eye to notice her fabulous boots. In a sea of mixed neutral outfits, this single colored look will have all eyes on this Fashionista this winter!
