Black is my all-time favorite color to wear.
On second thought, is it a color? Actually, black is the absence of light, and therefore not a color. Okay, I admit it… I definitely had to look that up!
However, we aren’t discussing physics today, we are talking fashion. In the fashion world, black is defined as a distinct color. Thank goodness because it is my favorite! It is such a staple in my wardrobe. You can wear it to absolutely any event on any occasion. Of course, we all know it is common for people to wear black to funerals, but to me, black isn’t a sad color at all!
In my opinion, black is one of the classiest colors, and my favorite thing about it is that it is flattering for everyone. I instantly feel better about myself when I slip on a black dress or sweater, but I think we all have a color that does that for us.
The star of the show in this outfit is this J.Crew skirt that I received as a Christmas gift. The detailing is absolutely beautiful. The top is covered in little jewels that sparkle and the bottom is covered in the most intricate, gorgeous black lace. This unique skirt is currently on sale which is a bonus!
I paired the skirt with this Halogen black cashmere sweater from Nordstrom. These sweaters come in a wide variety of colors and for cashmere, they are actually affordable! I had always wanted to add a few cashmere pieces to my wardrobe, and when I found these, I knew I had to order. I also ordered this in a beautiful light purple color. This sweater is so soft and cozy, and it is such a great addition to anyone’s closet!
These black sheer polka dot tights are also from Nordstrom! I think they add a great element to the outfit! Here are some tights from The Limited that are $22 dollars less and they look exactly the same. I wish I would have seen these before ordering the other ones!
I chose to accessorize today’s outfit with this beautiful YSL bag. You can purchase the real version of this bag here, or the replica version here. It’s even more beautiful in person and the quality is fantastic. I am a tad bit in love!
For heels, I went with a simple pair from Forever 21. These are a great classic black suede heel, but let me warn you, comfort is definitely not their strong point! These specific heels are sold out, but here is a pair from Forever 21 that are very similar.
