When it comes to wearing black, I keep it interesting by incorporating textured fabrics. It’s hardly revolutionary, Melbournites have been doing it for as long as black has been in. It keeps the outfit interesting but simple. It simple works every single time. Using textures for interest is pretty simple too.
In this outfit, I’ve used a leather-look midi skirt (my current loooove) and layered this top over it. It’s a simple outfit. Really simple and easy to wear, but it’s got a certain impact about it too. The top brings that. The skirt brings that. The nude boots in their easy perfection add to it as well. They sort of bookend with my hair actually, now I think about it.
And that’s the key. Keeping it simple and letting those blended textures and looks together. Effectively this is a skirt and top, but it’s so much more than that. So much more because it looks like something you want to touch, it’s interesting. So I one hundred percent encourage you to give it a try.
Try a monochrome textured outfit, I’d love to see the results!
