Style Inspiration: Black Magic

(Image above: taken from the fashion blog of DEE LAR SEN)

I love black. You love black. Everyone looks good in black. Unfortunately, there’s a common misconception that you can’t wear it during the summertime. That’s why today’s style inspiration comes from San Francisco-based fashion design student, Dee Larsen. Here she’s broken down the anti-black clothing barrier by wearing it from head to toe; but she does so in a way that’s breezy and cool by tucking a blackĀ  cotton V-neck tee into a black cotton skirt with pleats flowing from a high waistband. As a finishing touch, Dee has stepped into a pair of booties to complete a look that is simultaneously boho and Soho.

To achieve a similarly subtle summer look that allows you to maintain a sense of dusky mystery difficult to achieve with the bright, bold colors and prints typical of this season, try pairing a Victorian Tank in Anne Bronte with the airy linen of the Better Than Basic Skirt in Black. Add to these a pair of Battallion Boots for a Saturday afternoon of kicking around the city, or the Night on the Town Booties for, well, a night on the town!
