Today I bring you a super quick style post. I was day dreaming about my ideal city chic Gothic winter wardrobe and decided to put it together on Polyvore. I love black, I wear it a lot, from head to toe. It makes me feel tough, sexy and chic. I can relate to Gareth Pugh when he said ‘I think in Black’. It’s not so much the colour as how you wear it. To keep things grown up, opt for elegant items in classic silhouettes. To keep things interesting and to stop it looking flat, play with detail and texture. Leather look trims, wet look fabrics, lace, velvet, zippers and beautiful draping.
I managed to come up with at least 50 outfit options with just these few pieces, proving you really can buy less and wear more (as Gok always says). I’ll always advocate quality over quantity, it’s better for your wallet, the environment and your sense of style. Are you a lover of black clothing too? Would you say you have a Gothic streak or do you wear black because it feels safe? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
That’s all for today, thank you kindly for reading.
