I kind of love these photos, because you can’t even see the textures of the outfit with the magical backlight of the perfectly pastel Pacifica sunset. My favorite way to do a single-tone outfit is to incorporate multiple fabrics and finishes, and this faux-leather panel pencil skirt from Forever21 is one of my favorite recent finds, considering my affinity for donning black. The gold collar detail on the sheer black blouse adds a regal flash of sass to a boardroom-ready ensemble. Paired with my favorite pumps, this outfit took me through multiple meetings and a few intense deadlines with nary a flaw to be seen.
The beauty of a black on black look is that you’re virtually guaranteed to present a polished front. The fact that I’ve seen some tweets calling this a fall trend makes it even better. Parisian chic, order for an entire season. Check, please!
