How To Wear All Black Properly
Hey everyone! I took a little 10 day break so that I could rest after the holiday, but I’m back now! These photos were shot here in Ohio over the Christmas period, hence the Christmas tree and decorations in the background, and I thought they made a great contrast to my all black outfit. There was also a gorgeous brick wall in the mall, and that was just as pleasing to the eye, if not better! It’s crazy just how fast everything has gone though, it’s the 10th already and it feels like Christmas was just last week!
Anyway, getting to my outfit, I was wearing my Allsaints Balfern Leather Jacket, which I layered over an Allsaints Star Sheer Blouse. I also wore my L’AGENCE Margot Skinny Jeans in Graphite, and threw on my Saint Laurent West Harness Boots in Black. I then finished it all off with my Saint Laurent 5 a 7 Bag, to complete everything, and I really adore how it looks! I loved it so much that I wore this exact outfit again to the New Years Eve celebrations downtown!
The key to getting an entire black ensemble right is by mixing the different mediums/textures. I’ve got denim, leather, metal, and sheer fabric here, and they all work harmoniously together because they bring so much depth to the all black. The same thing with proportions of the pieces, creating different lines, curvatures, and elements. This is definitely how you go about wearing head to toe black and making it look chic, rather than really drab and boring. It’s all in the textures and proportions.
Speaking of the New Years Eve celebrations though, I got to see a ball drop for the very first time in my life (although it was very underwhelming) and I saw the midnight firework display, and attended a karaoke/disco event, which was so much fun! What did you get up to? And please do let me know what you think of my outfit here and the all black combination! Lorna xx.
