When I was a teenager, I used to babysit for this gorgeous woman who only wore black. Like all black everything, every day. I always wondered why she did, but she always looked so put together and sophisticated. I might understand a little better now, because black just covers a multitude of sins. The vacation food, lack of exercise and Jennifer Garner style baby bump all seem like a little less of a big deal when I’m in black.
Shop the look: (both shoes available in black)
Monochromatic is a trend this fall and I’m going to try it, not just with black! I think the key is to add some different textures, like faux leather leggings. I’ve had these things for a couple years now and still love them. A little more texture comes from my suede booties and the fringe on my cardigan. These just came in stock at Molly Suzanne and I’ve already worn my grey one 4 times in the past 2 weeks. They go with everything!
