It’s no secret that I love wearing black … I feel comfortable when I am wrapped up in my dark, hidden clothes. However, sometimes I am not in the mood to rock an all-black outfit and I’d prefer using a pinch of colour instead. I love making outfits that seem like they are fully dark, but then there’s a twist.
The thing about black is that people often think it looks too strict, even boring sometimes and “too” badass, like you haven’t slept in a year and you’re ready to kick ass at any given moment. This outfit truly lets you know that blackness isn’t all about the element of rock … Black can be girly and lovable as well. The bare-shoulders top is so easy going and free … We can style a pretty necklace next to it. The pattern at the end of the skirt is so great. It feels vintage and pretty. And then there’s a pinch of blue when you wear those high heels … It brings the outfit to another level. It’s not an “angry, teenager” look. It’s a feminine and beautiful one.
I’ve used more of the “teenager” vibe in this second ooutfit – it’s less … Formal. Just because everybody needs an every-day look. These kind of scarfs got incredibly popular in a short amount of time and I simply love them. They are nothing too special, but they give a statement. The skirt could have been tailored a bit prettier, I think, but it’s OK that it doesn’t look like it will stick to your skin too much. I like the heels, too, they compliment the scarf and all together this is “black with a pinch of colour”.
