With the winter months headed our way, I’m seriously hoarding any sweater I can get my hands on. I’m really into something that I can wear now on its own and continue to wear as a layer once the colder weather rolls in. This Dolly Cat Jumper from ASOS is crucial to my fall/winter transitional wardrobe. The graphic is cute without being cheesy, and the use of negative space to form the silhouettes is actually quite artistic. I’m a chiaroscuro kind of girl, so naturally I would choose the sweater in black, but for anyone who (unlike me) isn’t afraid to integrate some brighter colors into their outfits, it looks brilliant in shocking red.
As you can surmise from the outfit I wore yesterday, I love a good all-black look. I’m not ashamed to reveal that black is without a doubt the predominant color (neutral?) in my wardrobe. It is, of course, the consummate color (shade?) to wear — it’s chic, it slims, and it goes with anything and everything. Obviously I can’t be alone here. Celebs love it too!
Take, for example, the stunning Julia Restoin-Roitfeld. Julia is not only fashion royalty, but also a style standout in her own right. Not unlike her mother Carine Roitfeld (formerly of French Vogue), Julia is spotted in all black almost without fail, and she pulls it off with the aplomb of the insanely chic. Here she is brimming with swagger in the front row at Givenchy, rocking the hell out of one of her many monochromatic ensembles.
I don’t know which is more frightening: the fact that Courtney Stodden thinks she’s the next Marilyn Monroe or, um, everything about this photo. [Twitter]
