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.)

    I would style the sequin skirt for a holiday party by adding a black faux leather peplum top, tights and some killer pumps since I’m short!

    This look is perfection and one of my favorites! I’m not a huge fan of a lot of black but this totally gives me inspiration. I adore that sweater with the skirt. Any ideas of similar sweaters since that one is an old Express one? PS. Loving the way you styled your hair for this outfit too. You look beautiful!
