There may be no accounting for color in my outfit, but there is definitely some accounting for taste. All black outfits are my streamlined staples, and in this particular sartorial grouping, a staple that includes some classic wardrobe necessities. I love the masculine contours that are represented in a boyfriend blazer and leather joggers, and these two pieces are no exception. There seems to be a lot of trend fatigue running around with leather, PVC and bondage-like designs, but frankly, I've been into them for years, so it doesn't really disparage my zeal. I recently found a pair of PVC pants that have an entirely zippered crotch that I am dying over. They can even be yours for a mere $43.99 from your local online sex shop.
Most of the time, I expect my wardrobe to compliment my essence of being this accomplished, reflective, and worldly woman, one that is both sharp and chic, and what better way, then to stock up on black and leather? As I am obsessed with mini fashion films, particularly those that are created by my favorite brands, Chanel's film, The Colors, released this past Spring, is a film that goes through the main color hues of Chanel. When they discuss black, they say that black reveals radiance and because of Coco Chanel, black has evolved from the garments of servants and those in mourning to become, since 1926, the color of elegance. I also seem to veer towards black and white pieces, since they create a balance that I feel is sometimes needed in outfits and as they also state in the film, "one cannot exist without the another."
Black trumps all.
