Silk Top: Thrifted
Faux Leather Jacket: Urban Outfitters
Culottes: Nordstrom Rack
Sneakers: Adidas Superstar
Hat: Urban Outfitters
Always be on the lookout for silky blouses at the thrift store. They’re great staple pieces. I’ve amassed a small collection that are on a steady rotation in my outfits, and I can usually find them for a couple dollars. Just check for damages, snags, or missing buttons!
All Black Everything
As silly as it sounds, I felt like I was breaking the rules by wearing a hat to class because hats were against high school dress codes, but that made it more fun.
I love the newsboy cap style of this hat and the black and white houndstooth print because I easily paired it with an all black outfit.
Another styling trick I use all the time is to button three or four buttons of a silky blouse and double knot the excess.
When I’m running late or feel lazy, a great go-to outfit is to wear skinny jeans with a knotted top. Bonus points because you still look like you put in a lot of effort when you didn’t!
Since the look is monochromatic, one of my favorite ways of wearing all black is to combine different textures to keep it interesting. I think that monochromatic dressing is a modern form of power dressing. I felt very confident in this outfit because it’s trendy yet very fitting with my style.
