Helmut Lang blazer, Ashley Fogel tunic, J Crew belt (similar), Topshop boots, Karen Walker rings
Pitch black. One thing I love is rediscovering pieces that have for whatever reason, gone unworn for a number of months. After moving in January, I had asked my mum about what had happened to this tunic dress of hers, as she never wore it. Needless to say, the tunic ended up making its way into my wardrobe, and with that, the feeling of being new all over again.
Many things could be said of the 'Wellington uniform' of all black, that it is dreary, depressing or the like, but then at the opposite end of the scale, wearing all black can look chic, or be an interesting combination of layers and textures. Sometimes it's also all you want to reach for when you hear the wind bashing against your window. Either way, I love its simplicity, and wearing simple pieces like this makes me appreciate, and wonder of the potential for what an all black wardrobe could look like.
