Hometown Flare

It’s Friday and I’m walking through my hometown in a retro-70s inspired look with my bell flare jeans from Express and brown BLANKNYC vegan leather jacket.

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a fan of flare jeans and pants since they tend to make my legs look longer and accentuate my derrière and you can bet these high waisted dark wash jeans do just that.

For the longest time, I never combined black and brown because I believed it was a fashion faux pas, but as I got older, I’ve learned some of these silly fashion rules (e.g. not wearing white after labor day) are outdated and false. Brown and black pair well together since they both provide a polished and clean look and a little contrast to a monochromatic outfit can really make a difference.

Black Wednesday, Black Friday, Black Must-Haves

I don’t know about you, but I tend to wear black A LOT, particularly in the fall and winter months. Maybe it’s the gloomy and dreary weather or how it’s already pitch-dark when I’m leaving the office at 5pm that makes me want to reach for one of my black sweaters, tees, tunics and leggings. Or maybe wearing all black just so happens to do a better job of covering up those extra few pounds I usually put on around this time of year thanks to all those social events that fill up my calendar for two months straight primarily consisting of overindulging on victuals and libations.

Well, whatever the reason, I think we can all agree that there’s just something about an all black outfit or an article of black clothing that will always look classy, chic, sexy and mysterious. So in honor of Black Wednesday and Black Friday this week, I have linked some of my favorite fall and winter black must-haves for you to shop or use as a guide to complete your wardrobe with what I consider to be black essentials.
