Get the Look: Black


Nailing the all black look can be deceptively difficult.  You’d think it would be easy, but to really get it right you have to mix and match textures.  She gets it right here, pairing leather legs and low booties with a silky tank and a structured blazer.  I think this sort of look is best with a lapel-free blazer…. which is why I love the Theory one I featured here.  We should also talk about that hair, because I’m kind of obsessed with it… just love that messy, undone bun.

  1. Black Blazer (High // Medium // Low)
  2. Silky Tank (High // Medium // Low)
  3. Slouchy Bag (High // Medium // Low)
  4. Leather Leggings (High // Medium // Low)
  5. Low Boots (High // Medium // Low)

    Yup, I love this look. Yesterday I feel like I emitted it slightly–going for my inner New Yorker haha. Whenever I see an all black outfit they almost always look so chic! Thanks for sharing your picks to create this look!

    Black on black is my go to fall/winter look. It’s a no brainer and makes way for fun statement accessories!

    Don’t know that I could pull of full leather leggings with a straight face, but JCrew has this tuxedo striped pair I’ve been eyeing.

    I do love all black, but you’re totally right about mixing textures. I honestly hadn’t thought about that before.

    I love an all black look and would regularly wear it back in the US. However, somehow it feels more forced in Singapore (something about the tropical weather?) — that being said, I would wear every piece here! Nice finds, Grace!
