Today I want to talk about the classy black. Achieving an elegant and classy all black look, is not difficult if you keep in mind a few rules.

When you think about an elegant, feminine, all black outfit, what’s the first think that comes into your mind? For me, it is Coco Chanel with her staple “little black dress”.

Black looks good on all hair colors, skin tones; black is elegant and timeless.

If you want to approach an all black outfit and look fashionable, I’ll share some tips with you that help me every time.

First of all, in every all black outfits, the most important thing that you should pay attention to, is fitting. True that black is slimming, however you don’t want to look shapeless. So, take advantage of it’s flattering attribute and wear more fitted clothes.

I’m guilty of this one. My all time favorite trick in a monochrome outfit (especially black) is: bold accessorizing. In today’s outfit, for example, I made a statement with the feather brooch. It completely changed the blazer, from a simple piece, to one that draws all the attention.

If you feel the need to add a pop of color, you can do it by choosing a pair of shoes in a bold color.

I wanted to keep my shoes black, because these blue, sparkly pearl socks just stole my heart. I just saw them perfectly integrated in this look; they are in the same styling zone with my whole outfit.

A mix of pearls, lace and feathers… can it get any better? Oh, yes my dear! Red lips. I always though that you have to create a balance between your outfit and your hairstyle and makeup. Don’t forget that is part of the look.

A cat eye liner and red lips was everything that I needed to complete this classy black look.

What are the occasions, when you like to wear an all black outfit?

Have a great week my lovelies,

XoXo, OD!

Hello my lovelies,

The star of the show in today’s post is for sure, the coat.

When I saw it in the store, I automatically knew that I want it to be mine.

Trying on a small size, which it was way too big for me, it was a big disappointment, because I thought that is a very unique coat and I could create some really cool outfits with it. I was checking what else they had, when on the other side of the store I saw another coat, which for my surprise it was an XS.

The fabric of the coat is what makes it so different and interesting… kind of a mesh, but not really, that’s the reason why I chose to style it with a leather mini skirt and some fishnet leggings.

I decided to go for a black on black outfit, more on the edgy side, because for some reason I find myself digging this style a lot.
