It seems like all the colour has been drawn out of us as we take cover in a wave of black. Our favourite fashionista hashtag is #allblackeverything and Monash Streetegists are representing this trend in their outfits.
All black is always the easiest way to style an outfit. The ensemble works well altogether no matter what texture, length, shape or form each piece comes in.
Jade has us dreaming of a relaxed afternoon in a cool jazz club as she takes all black to a new level with her ebony bowler hat and lace layering.
Aysha has also done some chic contrasting with different textures with her lambskin coat. The lambskin look creates an outline effect over her deep black outfit.
Cameron has some sneaky red checked lining in his bomber jacket which helps to break up the all-black ensemble.
We are in love with the way Namulun has layered her outfit with black tights underneath her dress. Don’t rule out dresses in cooler weather because there is always something you can layer them with. Opaque tights will be the new comrade to your dress throughout winter.
Black is extra fun when you get some creative textures through the fabric like Qi has done with her top. This helps to recreate black looks and expose different elements in the garments. Layering with different textures creates an interesting contrast in your outfit.
So, keep up the black vibes and stay warm as we start to dress to impress for winter.
