Fashion Over Reason: No Color Whatsoever

No Color Whatsoever

Don't worry guys, I left my cape at home this time around. Ok, you got me, I kid. But it's impossible not to reference the caped crusader when wearing such a color-less outfit, wouldn't you say? But I digress. Saturday night fun times were had in this all black getup and I have an inkling that it may have something to do with my monochromatic disposition: even whilst wearing flats, donning all black inevitably makes one feel invincible, incognito even, but above all, cool as hell. Delusional? Perhaps, but i like it that way. Seeing as I'm quite the tomboy, borrowing from the boys comes naturally to me, which is precisely what I've done here. Loose tee? Check! Skater slip-on kicks? Check! Tuxedo pants? Check! Although I love these pants, which were acquired in Paris a few years ago, i rarely find the occasion to wear them because they can telegraph "office" or "maitre D" faster than you can say hello. So I aimed for each component of this look to work a double-shift (pun intended): the pants elevate the shoes and jacket, whereas the shoes and jacket bring the trousers down. I know, I like to think of myself as a genius too. (Again, I kid). Happy Monday everyone!

But are are a genius. Only you could style these pants so well?! And I regularly feel super cool wearing all black (sunglasses emoji kind of cool). Today is such a day, let down only by my very unfashionable fluey-ness!

so truth be told black was never really a colour i wore fact I'd say its the biggest shade missing from my wardrobe but lately with the solid basics im getting more into, i realized that navy and black are the basic essentials. so bref, this look totally speaks to the mood I've been in sartoriallly lately. plus, black is just such a no brainer right?


Great photos! xxx
