Paint It Black

Black is one of those colors that's always going to be in style. I personally love rocking an all-to-mostly black ensemble, and find that it's one of the easiest ways to look effortlessly chic. It's a universally fabulous color and designers and artists throughout history - ranging all the way back from Coco Chanel and Christian Dior to more modern figures such as Alber Elbaz and Yohji Yamamoto - couldn't agree any more. My personal favorite quote about it comes from Neiman Marcus: "Women who wear black lead colorful lives."

You can pair a great amount of colors and prints with a black outfit. In this particular one, I chose to have my statement accessory be my brown leather, zebra print bag from Coach. I love pairing brown leather and black together - it's a combination that definitely adds a bit of extra pop to a black ensemble, however does so in a subtle way that doesn't distract too much from it either.  

I also adore this Lulu crop-top & mini skirt set from American Apparel. As stylish as they look together, they also do really well on their own! Both pieces are incredibly versatile and can pair with a great number of other items in my wardrobe. I think I'm getting a lot more into these kind of "set" outfits, both for their overall look and their individual versatility, and plan on stocking up on more when I can. They're definitely a double-win in my book.
