There’s something about an all-black outfit that screams chic to me. If I’m ever unsure of what to wear or not feeling my wardrobe – which happens on a far too regular basis! – I know that a black ensemble will instantly lift my sartorial spirits. Whether it’s for lazy weekend brunches, a night out on the town, or just casual drinks, all black works for anywhere and everywhere. I even instigated an all-black dress code among my colleagues at work every Wednesday à la Mean Girls, which was a hit until everyone started forgetting about it – except me of course! (Reminder to self: bring back on Wednesday’s we wear black).
One of the latest additions to my collection of black is this oversized black shirt from one of my absolute favourite Melbourne labels, Nique. I picked this shirt up at one of their recent sales and haven’t looked back since; I’ve already worn it with black trousers for work and with jeans and a black felt hat on the weekend.
I’m a firm believer that everyone should invest in at least a few all-black to-to pieces, so that next time you’re standing in front of your wardrobe (or your floordrobe) thinking you have nothing to wear, you have something easy yet chic to fall back on – or better yet, something to simply choose in the first place!
