Breaking Black 4

It’s fashion week everyone! Ok, we can’t all get into runway shows but we can still give our clothes a front row seat. I’m a sucker for colour but I’ve challenged myself to work with black this time. I’ll start with a sparkly black full skirt and match it with sparkly black tights previously featured on Sparkly Blues. Glitter, glitter on the wall, who’s the most glittery of all?

I know, I owe you a disclaimer already. That’s right, I’m wearing my red shoes previously featured on Tread on Red. I can’t help it! And while I’m there, I’ll add green gloves too. You can guess by now that I’m going for a vintage look. Must add a petticoat. Voila, my new skirt looks vintage now.

Aim to nail the accessories. I have broken the black with colours. Now I can safely go back to black, or rather black and white. I think this look needs a black and white clutch and a matching top hat.

When wearing a full skirt, I like to have the top fitted. I have this tweed suit jacket that is perfect for the look I’m after. It’s grey-ish with black and white threads. You may have had enough of accessories, but I have to add a vintage ladybug pin to complete this outfit. My ladybug is red, black & white. What else would a woman want? Oh yes to twirl this outfit! Tru’ La La – Oh’ La La!

So, go on – experiment with your clothes. Break your black. Give your outfits a first row treatment. Happy Fashion Week!
