Once you go black, you'll never go back

yet another black and white outfit from yours truly =)
yes..I do realize summer is nearing as we speak (or has it actually arrived already?) and black isn't exactly summer's choice of color. Of course plenty would opt for a more brighter and softer color including satisfying their urge of wearing tribal and florals prints. This goes for me too..I, as well, do try to stay clear of wearing too much black which I'm finding out to be quite hard. However I don't necessarily feel the need to stash away those black pieces that mainly dominate my closet. After all black is timeless..I mean you don't see Karl sporting bright neon floral prints during summer, do you?

Well,even tough black is not such a summer-ish color,this outfit looks amazing! I love the combination of textures and the stipped-top is great :)

And,as long as you don`t fell to hot wearing black,go for it!

Love this,a very Parisian look and those bracelets are gorgeous.I think you should wear whatever you like no matter what.I never understood why I should wear,brown,black outfits in the fall or winter.I wear bright colors all year long and some people like to wear black and white all year long.I like how you've mentioned Karl here to make your point.

Chic and fabulous....I like your style!

Michelle Elaine said...

Black is most definitely timeless & classic. It goes with everything I tell ya! I use it for basics & staples, mixing & matching. I don't recommend a head to toe outfit in black during the summer - unless you enjoying sweating :)

Martwa Marta said...

black, greay and white pieces dominate my closet as well... i need some color (i don't know how many time i have said that)... the stripped top is brilliant!

Karl is not my style icon but I admire his work. Black is timeless indeed, but a splash of colour can be so refreshing in a world of black and grey. This looks so chic on you;-)
