If you read my last post you shouldn’t be surprised… Putting together a list of all black decor got me thinking about my favourite all black wardrobe essentials for the upcoming season as well so I thought I’d share them with you too. What I love about all of these items is how easy they are to mix, match or layer. Despite being in heavy rotation in my wardrobe for years – they’re still classic enough pieces that they come back in stock every year ( or at the very least – similar replacements do ).
FROM TOP LEFT: Aritzia Wilfred Daria Vegan Leather Leggings $138 | Aritzia Wilfred Montpellier Sweater Dress $178 | Abercrombie & Fitch Lace Trim Double Strap Cami $21.60 | Dynamite Calvin Ruched Faux Leather Skirt $39.95 | H&M Ribbed Turtleneck Sweater $34.95 | Aritzia Babaton Pearce Wool Coat $350 | Abercrombie & Fitch Ultra High Rise Super Skinny Jeans $84 | Matt & Nat Gloria Vegan Leather Satchel $140 | Steve Madden Joella Black Leather Ankle Boots $150 | Aritzia Babaton Everly Camisole $58
The Wilfred vegan leather leggings fit amazingly and are soft and smooth as butter. The lining on them makes them warm and comfortable. For a staple like a leather legging – I’d recommend splurging the $138 on these rather than getting a cheaper pair – you’ll feel and see the difference in quality.
A classic black cami, sweater, sweater dress or high waisted jean can be dressed up, dressed down and paired with almost anything. I love the edginess of a leather wrap skirt and usually try to pair it with a softer top like a sweater for work.
The Babaton Pearce coat is hands down one of my favourite splurge items ever. The hood on it is huge and it looks great with any fall outfit – mine has lasted years and the style is still on point.
A classic black satchel purse is goes with anything and I love a classic black leather open side ankle boot. I love how the open side looks with a skirt or cropped pair of jeans.
Here are a few all black outfits I’ve been feeling on Pinterest lately as well:
