Like any real love, it keeps you guessing. Like any real love, it’s ever changing. Like any true love, it drives you crazy. But you know you wouldn’t change anything, anything, anything… Welcome to New York.
“Welcome to New York” – Taylor Swift
Photographer Alexandra Wolf snapped these photos when I was on my way to the Daniel Silverstain show during NYFW. The bright pops of color in the city – yellow cabs, red buses, green traffic lights, and the occasional teal fedora – seemed to be echoed in the bright colors I saw accenting palettes of crisp white and sexy black in his new collection for SS16. You can watch the fashion show here.
I love black-on-black looks, especially in NYC. The key to making this look work without looking either a bit goth or a bit dull is to incorporate lots of texture. In this look I’ve included lace, sheer stockings, suede boots, and a patent clutch. The different textures help to break up all the black pieces while still providing the slimming effect a monotone outfit gives.
Another trend I’ve noticed for fall is mixing deep jewel tones with neutrals like black for a more opulent look. Try teal like my hat or a deep eggplant like my clutch. Burgundy, navy, and emerald are other colors that work beautifully for this trend.
Let me know if you watch the Daniel Silverstain show and tell me what you think down below. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!!
