STYLE GURU STYLE: Black is the New Black

Seasons come and go. Trends come and go. Colors come and go. But black stays a classic forever. Black will always be the new black.

This look is one of my favorites because it mixes different pieces, styles and seasons! I’m not the type of gal to stick to just one specific style. I’m an indecisive person, and that part of me definitely transfers over to my style. When I see something cool, trendy or fun—I go for it.

What I love about this outfit is that it a mixture of all things—classy yet modern, appropriate yet daring, comfortable yet stylish and let’s not forget…black on black!

I suggest always pairing different types of clothing together, because that way you can get more use out of it. This tank top is a simple black top, but paired with this faux leather skirt, it looks dressed up. What’s great about owning simple pieces like this is that you can dress them anyway you want. I’d pair the tank top with a ripped jean and sparkly choker next time!

Layering clothes is not only cute, but a smart way to stay warm! As fall and winter are rolling around the corner, it is always important to keep in mind the temperature. Not only does this jacket add a pop of texture to this outfit, but also, I live in the dessert, so it is always hot during the day, but a fringe, suede lightweight jacket like this is a lifesaver at night!

Layer your jewelry! I love wearing necklaces that my friends and family have gotten me because I feel like I am always carrying a little piece of them with me. But for those days when I want to add some more flare to my outfits, I add even more necklaces. The layering trick looks intricate, fun and makes any outfit look expensive (bling bling, am I right, ladies?).

So next time you feel uncomfortable wearing that one daring piece in your closet (for me, it is this faux leather skirt), try pairing it with a casual piece to make you feel more comfortable! Or, next time you want to dress up a tank, simply add a skirt, a jacket and lots of necklaces, and you will be the
