I’ve found that my style always tends to gravitate towards black, grays and neutrals during winter, with a few exceptions. Certainly there are some days when a hot pink cashmere sweater is perfect for a 30 degree January day; however, black is definitely what I prefer in the winter.
An essential to any wardrobe, especially one that includes a lot of black, is a striped top. It’s one of those shirts that everyone is always on the hunt for, even if they have five tops already. I was so happy when I came across this Topshop shirt, as I felt it had been what I was looking for! FYI, this does run a tad short, so I would recommend going up at least one size.
There are a few key wardrobe essentials that I believe you should always have in a classic black shade:
- A black and striped tee, and of course one in navy and white for spring and summer too.
- A great pair of shoes. I love combat boots if you’re trying to achieve a more “edgy” look, or a pair of classic ballet flats. My favorites also come in an extended width!
- A great handbag. I recommend a large tote if you’re a working girl, but a crossbody is also an essential for a night out.
Another reason black is such an awesome color?! Because my favorite Pittsburgh teams are known to rock the black and gold/yellow. Still bummed about yesterday’s Steelers loss. Anyone else get way into sports? Tell me it’s not just me.
