A chic all black look is one of the easiest ways to wear multiple textures in one outfit. It is also an assured way of looking put together, without looking “over-done”. The thing with wearing black is that, although it can be as simple as you want it to be, it never has to be basic or boring. This outfit features classic fashion pieces that individually have different textures but when worn together, make a stunning and elegant style statement.
The black midi skirt is not only polished velvet piece, but its plisse finish is pretty fabulous. It is styled with a black vest top that is plain to allow the textured black bomber jacket to shine. You can make textured pieces stand out more but styling them with plain pieces like the classic black court shoes. Texture also works brilliantly with accessories, so that’s why the black beaded bag perfectly complements the look.
If this look was recreated minus all the texture, you’d probably have an outfit that wouldn’t be worth writing home about. But in an attempt to make texture the secret style weapon, the final result of this outfit is an effortlessly eye-catching ensemble fabulous for a day date, the office or a weekend soiree.
