If you have been following me, you know that while wearing all black is not a new concept, it’s very new to me. I simply love color and find it hard not to include some color in each outfit. Honestly, I’ve just never been the person to wear much black — let alone all black.
Black clothing items are versatile & easy to style, and though it’s not my thing, I can certainly admit that an all black outfit here and there in my outfit arsenal is simply a must. Since I preach about incorporating color in your wardrobe, I decided to follow my own advice and mix it up myself.
Here is a tip to rocking an all black outfit without looking boring. Vary the fabrics and textures. Nothing looks more boring to me than an all-black outfit that is all cotton. Here I styled a leather pencil skirt with a sheer blouse. I got this black leather skirt from my thrift sister, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays during a clothing swap. A free leather skirt is certainly a major score in my book.
I thrifted the sheer blouse from Savers in Las Vegas for $6.25. You have seen this blouse styled completely differently here. I simply love the cuff details of this shirt. It makes the shirt stand out, won’t you agree? Pairing the sheer shirt against the leather definitely avoided the bore factor in this all black outfit.
I added these simply black heels to complete the outfit which I got from Ross Dress For Less for under $20. Hands down, they are one of my go-to black heels, as you can see here.
Finally, just to add some dimension to this all black outfit, I added this absolutely gorgeous statement necklace from Miss Match boutique here in San Diego.
