WHAT TO WEAR: Back to Black

Winter is on the way and Georgia Tech students have already begun to feel the chill. Making the trek between classes is difficult enough when walking in the cold, but the drop in temperature can also limit one’s clothing choices significantly. The color black in particular seems to dominate every clothing rack from December to February. However, black has the potential to add sophisticated and edgy flair to an outfit. Though black clothing may seem to be fairly invariable in its appearance, it can be made versatile by the patterns and textures it graces, and by the accent pieces accompanying it.

The model featured here makes her way to class in a bleach-washed denim jacket over a black knitted mock neck sweater, along with black palazzo pants and black patent block heeled ankle boots. Sculpted brows and crimson lips add a sophisticated flair that ties the outfit together.

Black pieces are the main focus of this outfit, and provide a bold centerpiece for the light blue denim jacket and deep red lipstick to effectively contrast. The darker pieces differentiate themselves from each other by varying in texture; a knit patterned top gives way to a flowing pair of wide-leg pants, which give way to a reflective pair of heels.

Even though the outfit is comfortable enough for classes, it still possesses an eye-catching quality. You don’t have to shy away from pairing multiple black pieces of clothing, as evidenced by this model’s choice of ensemble. The great thing about black is that it goes with everything, even itself.
