All-black everything. Whether you love it or hate it, the trend of all-black is happening. Black is sleek and simple, and wearing black from head to toe makes for a sharp appearance. This Fashionista opted for an all-black look, but she incorporated intricate details and a white scarf to take her simple look to the next level.

The component of her outfit that catches my attention the most is her jacket. On a campus filled with The North Face jackets and Patagonia pullovers, this isn’t the typical jacket I see when walking to class. From a distance, it’s hard to notice the details and colors involved, but when you take a closer look, you see how the different colored patterns come together to create an overall unique and textured appearance. Not only does her leather jacket stand out because of its designs but also because it’s the only piece in her outfit that incorporates color. With the embroidery on the jacket and the addition of a lace scarf, her look can manage with minimal accessories. Of course, this Fashionista knows no outfit can be complete without a chic cross-body purse.

As seen above, you don’t need to wear flashy patterns or take part in crazy trends to make a statement. This Fashionista proves how easy it can be to pull off a subtle yet eye-catching look with just a few simple pieces. Whether you want to experiment with the black on black trend or add a unique jacket, opt for a distinctive piece that fits your look. It’s satisfying to wear an outfit that catches attention, but it’s also important that your outfit makes you feel confident and stays true to your personal style.
