STYLE GURU STYLE: Dark Denim Days

September 18th, 2015 at 2:05am

Nothing says fall like jeans and jackets!

I loved the Diesel Black Gold pre-fall‘s take on these pieces. Utilizing dark colors, leather accents and classic cuts, this collection puts a modern edge on the timeless black jean. Black goes with anything and everything, but I was inspired most by the monochromatic scheme and stuck mostly to neutrals.

Lately I have been into fashion fusions, like this one, of classic and edgy. The black skinny jean is the perfect centerpiece for this ensemble. I also wanted to maintain the androgynous street style of the outfits featured and incorporated more masculine cuts to contrast with the tightness of some other pieces. This is also why I forwent jewelry, as the collection models.

My outfit pairs high-waisted black jeggings with a denim moto jacket and a white T-shirt. This jacket has been a recent staple of mine because the staple cut and wash complement all sorts of shades and styles paired with it. To top it off (and combat the windy day) I added my favorite leather hat. Sharp winged eyeliner is a great way to fuse this look together by utilizing a classic line with a hard edge.

Black flatforms are my go-to shoe, but as the weather gets cooler this season, I would suggest black Chelsea or combat boots with this outfit. And of course, how could I have engineered a “Black Gold” look without a few gold details? My belt, shoes and jacket details feature this subtly but nicely. This style fusion is perfect for casual days roaming the city when I want to feel comfortable, trendy and classic all at once. You can never go wrong with dark denim.

Utilize the simplicity of dark denim this fall season, it will always be perfectly appropriate and stylish.

Get My Look: 1. Classic black jeans. 2. An edgy denim moto jacket. 3. Loose white T-shirt. 4. A black leather hat.
