When I wore this out the other night, my boyfriends remark was ‘are you going to a funeral?’. Charming.
I love how an all black outfit can look. I’d never really been a huge fan of black tops but I have to say this off the shoulder number I got last Summer ticks all the boxes for me – it’s lightweight, loose and has cute little pom pom detailing around the sleeves and hem. Plus the elastic around the top is not too tight, not too baggy, so I’m not constantly re-adjusting myself when I’m out and about.
It’s a nice loose and flowy fit, but for a few drinks in the evening I chose to do a simple front tuck into my jeans. I just felt it was needed to bring a little definition and style to the look.
Accessories wise, as I was wearing my studded boots I kept a silver accent going throughout the look, adding a long hamsa hand pendant necklace I’ve had for years and a newer addition in the western style belt which helped define my waist a little.
I love this outfit! In the Summer months I love wearing off the shoulder tops (FYI, there’s a few featuring in my Summer capsule) as they’re so loose and billowy for good air circulation to keep cool, whilst still looking good!
So yes, perhaps not an outfit for the heat of summer (black skinny jeans not such a good idea), but for an evening out it was perfect. And besides, there’s many other options to pair the top with in the warmer weather : )
