Layers of Black

01-25-15-black-out2

Even though layering is currently all the rage as endorsed by top fashion bloggers and journalists admirably layering pretty much the entire contents of their wardrobes, my preference leans towards less complex layers. In order to create a flattering silhouette using all black pieces, strategically layered proportions and textures is the name of the game.

This look started off with the foundation of contrasting texture with a basic cotton turtle neck t-shirt against wax coated denim. To bring in interesting texture I added a thin faux fur sweater and the embossed bag. As a top layer, the tux blazer creates an unexpected proportion contrast against the longer sweater. My top tip for layering is to use thin layers (and no more than 4 ) so you don’t end up looking bulky. Also vary the textures and proportions when layering with a single color so the overall look is not flat.
