the undisputed trend of this season is black. it's awards season, and it's been a real compliment on the red carpet. seen at the BAFTA's and the grammy's, it's clear it's going to be a hot colour this season. i wear black a lot, but here a few of my favourite black pieces...
this could be a going out outfit, but could also be worn with a blazer to go out for dinner. i would normally recommend that you wear a black bandeau under it as well, but i couldn't find mine so please excuse excess skin on show. this was from asos, i'm not sure it's still on there anymore, but it's a very strange kind of top. it's kind of long, but not long enough to be worn on its own. i really love it though, and it is most definitely different - which is important in fashion. worn with my trusty discos, this is a really nice alternative to the normal black oversized top.
this is a more going out outfit, and is a standard little LBD. this is a really really old Topshop number that i got from local boutique, Boutique 73. i've only worn it a few times, as it's super tight and if you're rocking a food baby (which is frequent for me) it's not so hot. i love black dresses, there's a reason that the LBD is a constant fashion classic. it's always on trend and goes with anything you put it with. this dress has a level of interest with it as well due to the lace panel in the middle of the dress, which is super pretty and makes it a little bit more than a fitted black dress.
please excuse the somewhat awful lighting, took photos way too late tonight due to internet being down all day! this is simply a plain black skater dress from H&M - it was really cheap, about £7.99 i think? it's a real staple piece in my wardrobe, as i can whack it out and accessorise it if i'm going out for a meal, with a long necklace (such as my peace necklace pictured), or a pashmina. worn with a nude coloured blazer, this could also be brightened up nicely. :)
so, it's clear that black is a key part of my wardrobe this season, what do you think? xo
