Black Out

Saturday, 29 November 2014
Skirt by River Island
Clutch by Reiss
Watch by Bell & Ross

Black Friday seems to have come around very fast this year, at least it seems that way to me. So I thought it only right to feature an all black outfit post because although we all wear black head-to-toe from time to time it's not something I do very often. I'm a big fan of colour as you know, but I can't deny the allure of this comforting, timeless colour especially in winter when it's important for clothes to feel substantial and warm. 

When I wear head-to-toe anything I like to play around with texture within the outfit and that's exactly what I've done here by pairing a leather look midi-skirt from River Island with an embellished luxe sweater by Jeff (a very cool Belgian label that specialises in knitwear, it's available at Feather & Stitch with 20% off while stock lasts). The sparkle on the (oh so soft) sweater plays down any potential grunge vibes in the skirt while the leather look prevents the sweater appearing too cute. The metallic bag mirrors the embellished details and ties the look together.

A quick note on the Billi Bi boots... these are my favourite buy of the season. Incredibly comfy, perfect heel height, fantastic soft leather, they look just like Acne Pistol boots but are a fraction of the cost. They're available in grey (here) too.
