How do you wear all black?  I know the secret to making this look work….

If you saw my 7 for all mankind post (click here for details!) I went on and on about how I found the perfect black high waist skinny pant! I’m telling you they truly were worth the purchase.  They have quickly become my go to pant! I wear them now with everything; casual with tennis shoes or dressy with heels.

I wore this look out a few weekends ago for cocktails with an old friend and I have been obsessed ever since.  I threw it together last minute and was pleasantly surprised with how much I loved it! It’s a perfect outfit for a night on the town.  That night I actually wore it with hot pink lipstick (click here to see Bella from Stila) – so cute!

Anyways, if you have a a lot of black in your closet let’s make an outfit!  What makes this look work is that I chose pieces that all have different textures.  This crop top  (only $16 from Nordstrom, click here!) is ribbed and the leather coat (click here for a similar leather coat I really like) has hardware and quilting that help break up the all black.  I also like that the crop top breaks up the black on black by showing a little skin 🙂  But crop tops are not for everyone so if you want to emulate this look, tuck whatever black top you chose in your pants and add a belt – I would suggest an all black one with a silver or gold buckle (like this chic black belt with a gold plaque, click here!).  Your black bottom can really be any material.  As long as you have texture in some piece, it will look great! With spring around the corner, you might not even need a third layer, just a black blouse or top would work. Depending on the look you are going for (casual, chic, etc.), the shoe you chose should be all black as well. Head to toe black – ah I’ve died and gone to heaven!

The secret is texture! Mix it up and have some fun!  Experiment with your wardrobe, I swear you will be surprised by what work togethers! Who knew all black everything could be so fun 🙂
