As I mentioned in this post yesterday, it has been cold here in Richmond (and I am not a cold weather kinda girl), which means I have been drawn more to dark colors — especially head to toe dark looks. There is something so chic about wearing all black that looks edgy at the same time. There are also many advantages to wearing head to toe black. For one, this ensemble is so easy to create since most of us already have many black pieces in our wardrobes to mix and match, making it the perfect choice for when you’re strapped on time. Another advantage to wearing all black is that it has a slimming effect and who doesn’t love that?! Since this monochromatic combination can sometimes make you look like you’re a secret agent, I added a subtle pattern with the Old Navy pixie pants to offset the seriousness.
