Wearing black from head-to-toe can look (and feel) a bit funereal. One of my tricks is to mix textures for a more visually (and personally) exciting look. Here, I’ve combined a few of my current favorites.
Details make the difference in this chunky knit, longer length sweater: mixed media sleeves, silky zip pocket, thick cuffs, side slits. Instead of typical leggings, I paired it with these pleather ones. They’ve got a good mid-rise and lots of stretch, so they are very forgiving. And still look pretty cool. I finished with embroidered booties and this statement watch in rose gold with black leather band.
I could also see a combo with black jeans, velvet top and patent booties or sequin top, sleek leggings and statement heels. Whatever the occasion, you can make your own unique LBO.
Watch: Cluse, here’s mine but LOTS of options
