Now, I'm a person that loves colour. I love varying colours, varying prints, varying fabrics. So, I'm not usually a person to conform to an all-black style (I worry I look way too goth/washed-out/dull - monochrome fans, I salute you). Saying that, I've recently discovered that, sometimes, an all-black outfit can look classy and elegant - without looking like I'm attending a funeral. So the following (nearly) all-black outfit was perfect for my delving into monochrome territory, as I got to mix it up with the striped sleeveless top.
For my first attempt at all-black fashion I maintained my classic, girly style with this gorgeous pleated skirt, while adding some edge and attitude via a leather jacket and these amazing pointed leather boots from Zara. These boots are definitely going to see me through the season. I feel like a rockstar in them!
