Looks of the Week: Black-on-Black

I adore everything about Spring – From the weather outside to the weekend getaways to the fun florals, bright colors, and beautiful prints that finally make their way into stores.

But as much as I love those eye-catching colors and prints, sometimes there’s nothing better than a simple, chic, all-black look. No matter how beautiful the weather is, black always appeals to me. Especially when I’m traveling – It’s easy to put together a stylish look in no time and regardless of where you are it’s always in style.

Here are a few killer black-on-black looks to give you a little inspiration next time you’re in the mood for a simple, minimalist look!

MCLV Style: Simple Layers

October is something of an awkward month here in San Francisco – The weather seamlessly shifts from Indian Summer to chilly, breezy, foggy Fall and back again for the duration of the month. Choosing your clothes is something of an adventure as you never quite know where the day will take you weather-wise.

After years of getting caught in the rain in a Summer dress or perishing of heat exhaustion in an overcoat during a random Fall heat wave, I’ve learned the necessity of simple layers and wardrobe basics here in the City by the Bay.

Pieces like this faux leather trimmed skater skirt and slouchy pocket tee can be layered over & added to with ease – I had tights, a sweater, and a pashmina in my bag for later this evening, all of which were completely necessary by the end of the event. Fall in the Bay Area is all about being prepared!

What’s Fall fashion like where you live?
