How to Wear All Black without Looking Boring

DSC09976I have been wearing separates a lot this festive season versus I tended to rely heavily on one-pieces in the last couple years. The other day I wore this set of separates to attend a fashion show.

Knowing that I would be surrounded by some of the most stylish people in town, I decided to go back to the basics – a black on black ensemble. While some people may think wearing black from head to toe is boring, I consider it a challenge to the details game.

This asymmetric hem skirt is a statement piece itself. The soft layers of fabric drape beautifully from the waist down and create interesting movements when you move. Ah, By Johnny, you did it again!

For extra comfort, I paired this skirt with a trusty T-shirt and block-heel sandals. Please bear with me for yet another pair of lace-up shoes. I have felt in love with the famous Windsor Smith’s Gillie Heels since they were launched several years ago, but the 10.5cm stiletto heels just didn’t seem very practical for me. So you could only imagine how happy I was when I found out they have released an 8-cm block-heel version this year!

These babies are comfy enough for me to be on my feet all night, and I love that flash of gold on the heels. However, they run big in size. I am usually an EU 37 and I am wearing an AU 6 here (equivalent to an EU 36 according to their website), which is the smallest size available for this style.

To finish off the look, I teamed this all-black outfit with some gold and silver tone accessories for a touch of festive spirit.

Do you wear black much? How would you wear black?
