Wearing an all black look is not what I shy away from. Black is fab and flattering no matter how you wear it. For a girl who used to wear black a lot a while back, the possibilities of an all black look/ensemble is endless to me.
My look today was inspired by Julia Roberts in the movie Pretty woman. Julia in that movie went from wearing “glad rags” to wearing trouser suits and skirt suit with gorgeous accessories from hats, to sunglasses because of her new man.
For this look, I paired a few of some of my favourite things together to create a 3 piece suit. The pants are my work pants that I adjusted to fit in length. The waist coat was the one I wore casually here and the blazer is the one I throw on most of my looks for polish and sophistication as seen here. I paired all 3 together to create a new look with some of my old pieces.
If you learn the art of mixing and matching old with new, you will spend way less on clothes……Fashiontip.
Because I have an all black look on, I added some gold accent. My clutch, belt and heels all have the gold accent which was enough to break down the all black.
Fashion TIP today !
This all black look is monochromatic. This simply means wearing one single colour from head to toe. If you are petite or want to create the illusion of longer/taller frame, this kind of look will do the magic for you. Swap the sandals for pointy toe heels to get the full illusion of being tall.
The belt I added to this look cinched in my waist and the blazer added on top of the waist coat accentuated my waist and made me look slimmer. To look slimmer instantly, wear belts.

If you missed my post on how to deal with body insecurities, check it here. I had to revisit the title on this post because ever since I wrote that article, I have received so many messages on how the post helped a lot of you who for one reason or the other think you are not good enough. Don’t let anyone tell you different, you are good enough.
I thank you very much for letting me know the post was helpful to you. It is my promise to you that whenever you stop by, you get information worth your time.
So tell me, are you an all black lover too? Would love to read your thought in the comments below.
