Slouchy Sequins

Sweater: Express, old; Skirt: c/o StyleMint; Tights: SPANX; Shoes: ShoeMint; Earrings: Gorjana; Spike Cuffs: c/o Bauble Bar; Disc Ring: Gorjana; Thumb Ring: House of Harlow; Watch: Michael Kors

Black is boring.

But black on black on black on black in 4 different textures is anything but boring! Its kindof like monochromatic print mixing, right? (And we know I love me some print mixing…remember this?!)

The key to doing it monochromatically: Create 2 sets of  similar textures or items that you would naturally wear together. Set one: Chunky sweater and sweater knit tights. Set two: Sequin skirt and leather booties. Now combine the 2 sets…and there ya have it. Simple enough, right?!  Start with all black, and then for the brave souls…move into color. (An oxblood version would be kindof amazing.)
