Almost All Black


When in doubt I like to reach out for all black outfits and that has been my way of dressing for years now.

So, when I have a special occasion of any kind and I am planning my outfit at the last minute, it is most likely to be an all black one. It is also most likely that I am planning my outfits at the last minute for most of the occasions. I hate myself for doing that! Nevertheless, this outfit is something Β wore during a recent bloggers meet that I had visited as a speaker. I was seriously unsure about my outfit and like always, was trying to put something together 15 minutes before leaving the house.

I seriously did not know what to wear as the occasion demanded something slightly formal. Or may be not, frankly I had no idea! It wasn’t a fashion blogger meet up as such but a generic one with bloggers coming from all kinds of niches. Which is basically why i didn’t want to look too fashionable but at the same time not too casual either. So I selected this look for myself and I think it has the right mix of everything I needed- style and sophistication. It is not super fashionable, slightly modest but definitely made me look like a fashion blogger without trying too hard! I don’t know if I am praising myself too much but I was so happy striking the right chords with this all black look.

However, it was not one of my everyday all black outfits, which is why I preferred calling it and almost all black outfit! I added a touch of grey with these trousers which are a bit formal-ish but super comfortable. Rarely do you come across such a superb mix!

These grey trousers are definitely a classic pair and I have also styled it slightly in a girly way in a previous post!

It is nice to own such timeless pieces that you can go on wearing in new ways every time and I am happy my grey trousers have made this one of my favorite all black outfits!

Unfortunately these trousers are a bit old and sold out now but I have linked some similar pieces for you to check out.

Currently work is keeping me super busy but I had to quickly come and publish this look as it was long pending. Being busy is a positive thing for me at the moment because I am working on so many multiple projects. While some of them might not be visible to you all as readers but rest assured a lot is going on at the back end of the blog to make your experience unique and exciting on Style Over Coffee! πŸ™‚

    It’s really truth! Timeless pieces are the best and you really have two that I always have in my wardrobe: the black shirt and the grey trousers, they go with almost every other outfit, perfect!

    That’s a gorgeous outfit, really classic. I need to wear all black for work but always try to make it a little more interesting by wearing a top with a lace detail for example!

    Great look- the grey adds a dash of formality/colour. I love wearing a lot of black too, but try and find ways to break up the mono colour, so it doesnt look like a solid block of colour. Great little purse too!

    The combination reflects gray and black which these two neutral color works great and reflect powerful image. Great match, looks good on you too.

    Whenerver in doubt, wear black! I used to follow this quote a little too much and almost my whole wardrobe became black, until mum got rid of half of it and replaced it with bright colored outfits.. she said my wardrobe was too dead and she has to bring life back to it lol

    Black helps you to create an elegant outfit without spending so much time thinking how to mix and match colours, patterns and textures. It was (and is) my favorite.

    Black can be tres chic and elegant and you can combine any accessory and colour of shoes to black. Love it.
