There is nothing easier than layering black, we all know that. It is no surprise that when you feel like you have nothing to wear, or you simply don’t know what you should wear, black comes first. You can’t make any mistake, can’t go out of the way, because black is black and nothing can go wrong when you layer this shade.
However, there are a few ways you can make your black layering a little more exciting. The easiest one is to work with different textures. I know, you read that in every fashion magazines and on every blog, but you know why? Because it works.
With this particular outfit, I mixed leather (coat), faux leather (bag), Polyester (dress) and recycled fur (scarf). It creates a different black on black on black vibe than the usual same colour layering.
Don’t forget to play with lengths also. It is the key to great layering (major key alert).
