I think everyone knows that black is such a staple colour and mixing blacks can actually be rather creative rather than dull. With this outfit I chose to mix some textures alongside a simple print. Wearing a bralet underneath a lace or sheer top is such a feminine alternative to cami's. I always feel like a cami top underneath is too much, and draws attention away from the beautiful print of the lace. I am in love with triangle bralets as they are soft and comfy to wear, whilst always looking rather edgy and different (H&M have a great range of different colours). To contrast slightly I have chosen a pair of high waisted jeans in a washed black colour. The look of wear adds to the overall effect of the outfit. Since the weather is still rather bleak and miserable, coats are essential. To add a bit of 'colour' and some patterns I've chosen my favourite oversized checkered wool-feel coat. Finally I added a pair of black flatforms to add some height but the shoes are not too over powering, they are rather simple with a double strap buckle. I've also added some chunky rings alongside twisted silver midi rings, and some of my handmade necklaces (link to my DEPOP above).
