How to Wear all Black


It's no secret that black is my favorite color when it comes to clothing.  As much as I try to add brighter colors into my wardrobe, I just have to face the fact that I'm a neutral girl, as that's what I feel best wearing.  One of my favorite, and fool proof, outfits to wear is all black.  Not only is this look easy to put together, but it's also very slimming, and I love that gives off a bit of an edgy vibe.  The key to wearing all black is to mix different textures together, making your outfit interesting instead of boring.  Here, I layered a lace tank under my favorite blazer, and paired them with faux leather skinny jeans.  I finished my outfit with a black skinny scarf for a fun layer, then added neutral heels and clutch to lighten the look.  

I haven't worn a lace camisole in quite some time.  I remember black pants and lace camisoles were my go to outfit back in my college days.  Now with their return, I'm finding them to be perfect layering pieces, and love how this one looks under my black blazer.  If only I kept all my old camis.......

  10. It's funny because I'm the exact opposite! I almost never wear neutrals. It's something I need to work on actually, because they're so elegant. I love the leather pants you added into this outfit!
