leather on leather, black on black

by Nicole Regan in

This is my uniform. Maybe I've already said that before, but this is what I wear the majority of the time. All black. It's easy, it looks like I put some effort in my sartorial choices and it's transferrable from day to night. Another rendition of my uniform is with my black faux fur coat. Same idea, all black. Wearing all black can quickly cross into boring territory (although I would disagree) so I upped the interesting factor by layering different pieces. A light sweater, a vest, a scarf. The key to wearing all of one color, namely black, is to layer and vary the texture of the pieces you are wearing. It adds dimension and detail to an otherwise flat presentation. I threw in a brown leather bag because one, that was all I brought with to Texas, and two, it happened to complement my hair color nicely that evening. Do you have a uniform you wear almost daily?
