All Black Everything

Street Level Reversible Tote

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:

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.

Do you rock an all black ensemble? What are your wardrobe essentials for achieving the look?

    Such a great jacket! And I agree, a striped top is a staple, but I’m yet to find the right one for my wardrobe, so I might try Topshop! Thanks!
