What to Wear: Black on Black

I’ve talked a lot about layers over the course of the past few months – it’s like I watched a Sesame Street episode on Under vs Over…having had a long-standing love affair with cardigans, the realization that I could put a shirt on under a tank to create a totally different look has opened up a world of possibilities for me!

It is soft, thin and somehow simultaneously perfect for layering or wearing solo. The perfect piece for this transition time. With the loose nature of the outfit overall, if I layered a cardigan over the top, I might just look like a blob. By layering underneath, I remain appropriately covered and the elegance of the flowy silk top comes across. Adding a structured bag pulls the look together and ensures it doesn’t look like I’m wearing my pajamas – even though it’s that comfortable to wear! : )
