Spring 2014: Outfit 46

Trini Acne shirt The Kooples skirtTrini Chanel flap black outfitTrini black outfit chanel bag   Today i’m in an all black outfit again! But quite opposite to last week’s. Today is all about casualness and comfort and relaxed vibes. Yesterday I was watching the first episode of Downton Abbey, a series I have wanted to watch for ages, but caught in between The Killing, Girls, Looking and Breaking Bad, I had not time for a fifth one. Finally I finished three out of those four and decided to start a new one. I was not expecting to find such great quotes and one instantly got my attention: “No one wants to kiss a girl in black”. Right away I was reminded about Coco Chanel, specially because the series is happening in the same era, and all I could think of is how Chanel would have said exactly the opposite. Then I went even further and just thought about how many times we sober girls, and I bet some of you my lovely readers have heard this more than once, get the “boring” adjective in reference to our outfits. To me all black outfits, and in general soberness is underrated of course, always will be, but it also is everything but boring! The fun factor does not lie on colors, it lies on so much more elements such as fabrics, cuts, details. I do understand though that only people with a sharp eye can see it, and that is the minority all along. So therefore probably the “Kardashians” of the world (sorry I could not think of anything tackier at the moment) will probably always be more appealing to the masses than the “Cocos”.

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses, Acne Studios t-shirt, The Kooples skirt, Adidas Gazelle sneakers via Zalando.es and Chanel bag. bloglovin

    Thanks for the peptalk! I’m going to a party this weekend, and will now definetly wear my sober black dress, even though it is summer and black is deemed dull at this time of year.

    I have never left a comment here but now: “Amen, sista”!
    The outfits that always catch my attention are the most minimalist, neutral-colored, simple-looking ones! I say simple-looking because as you implied, simplicity reaches absolute perfection when it is only apparently simple, but there is a lot of thought and taste lying behind it.

    By the way, your blog is my absolute favorite, I come here every single day, and every single day I’m amazed by your incredible taste and style. Love love love :D

    I’ve been stuck in the mindset that exciting outfits are full of lots of details that are immediately noticeable to my (novice) eye: colors that go well together, interesting textures, and accessories that tie the look together. I’ve been drawn more to neutral colors as of late (including lots of grey and black) but I struggle with not wanting to be boring while wearing them. I hope as time goes that I’ll see that one doesn’t need all the bells and whistles to not look boring. I notice fit a lot more now than I used to. The looks you share on here are helping me with that, so thank you! :)

    I’m so glad to be of help Kimi! Don’t you ever worry about being boring, just wear what you feel comfortable with and love and you’ll be set, promise! Theres no need for much to look/be fun as opposed to boring, I think it’s more of an attitude than anything else.
