Four years ago, you wouldn’t have seen me in an all black outfit – unless, of course, I was dressing up for Halloween. Fast forward a couple of years and I must say, i’ve been investing rather heavily in a couple of black style staples and have finally come to realise the effortlessness of black – how classy it is and the simplicity it evokes.
A black leather jacket always comes up trumps for what you simply must have in a ‘capsule wardrobe’. It’s a staple and in Winter, an absolute necessity. It goes with so much and adds such an edge to an otherwise pretty plain outfit. This one from Topshop is perfect – it’s cropped, has got just enough ‘biker’ style and has the addition of a cosy faux fur collar. Pair with simple black jeans, a silk cami top and slip-on trainers and this has become quite a go-to outfit of mine.
Although I don’t think i’ll be one of those girls who adorns an all black outfit every day, i’m certainly warming to it.
