Black on Black

The other day I wore a perfectly calculated outfit that consisted of black leather riding boots, black skinny jeans paired with a black belt, and a simple black blazer. I was purposfully monotone, but that day it was brought to my attention that this look is somehow by some people associated with “goth” or funerals or sadness. Did I miss this memo?

All black is a look I constantly rock (especially for work) number one because it’s so easy to style and number two because it looks so darn sleek. I just can’t get enough of its simplicity. It has nothing to do with a bad mood, bad weather, or otherwise. To me it’s just a timeless look that makes a statement.
