I wore #allblackeverything (thanks Kanye) to a meeting downtown this week and found it empowering. I should probably do it more often — I felt French, feminine, powerful. I will be doing the same this weekend, in more casual duds — a pair of classic black skinnies, a simple black tank ($52), a lovely piece of lingerie ($79), and some simple black sloafers (on sale for $143 — love the nubby texture):
Top it off with this beautiful Phillip Lim purse ($695) –
– and some great gold arm-candy, like this covetable Vita Fede tritan bracelet ($225 — all the cool girls are wearing them!), a wrap watch (La Mer Collections, $88), and this sweet Jennifer Zeuner bracelet ($132):
I’m also really into the Miroslava Duma style matching top-and-skirt combo, and a crop top feels bold but very on point for the season. Check out this Joie top ($144) with a matching skirt ($154), finished with this eye-catching tangle of a necklace (By Malene Birger, $195) Would you do it?!
Pair with perfect booties — whatever form they may take for you. This pair (on sale for $322) is simple, elegant perfection to me, and would be lovely alongside the Alexander Wang Rocco (still in style, four years after its birth — $925)
I also may want to pull a Khloe Kardashian with this body-con number (Alexander Wang, on sale for $158), made a little more wearable with a great open-weave cardigan (Milly, $495) and this layered necklace ($75):
I like this look with these polished patent-and-tweed pumps (on sale for $147):
I like this classic black Givenchy Antigona tote ($1,240):
Don’t forget a spritz of my favorite perfume ($105) — I always get compliments on this, and the packaging is so sexy!
Finally, for an updated cool-gal (London-esque) look, update this black Burberry classic toggle coat ($995) –
