Timeless, Elegant, Classic. Today’s look is a mishmash of texture and fabrications; an intermix of silk, cashmere, leather, beads, and faux fur to create one look. An all black look was not the plan for Tuesday’s holiday luncheon, it just kind of happened – yet it worked. Black is the one color that allows us to mix and match seamlessly, for endless outfit combinations – therein lies it’s beauty. When I gotta go, I grab black head-to-toe.
The creative side of me loves pulling together an eclectic outfit, but we all know the artistic process needs time and an open mindset – sometimes a girl’s just gotta pull it together and get out the door.
I totally get that many of you do not like the color black up close to your face. Does it make your skin tone pastey? Totally understandable. That’s when scarves come into play. Grab a color that looks best on you, most likely somewhere in the pattern there will be some black, and if not, no worries. The color black is a blank canvas, accessorize it as you will. Today I chose an animal print oblong scarf to keep my neck warm, tying in the color of my sherpa cape. I choose gold accessories to work back to my black faux fur satchel and off I went!
Today’s gorgeous quilted leather gloves and animal print silk/wool scarf were kindly gifted to me by Black.co.uk. Being I love the color black and any luxe fabrication, I was thrilled to give them a review. As always, opinions and selections are entirely my own.
