I rarely wear black, much less an all black outfit, but I think the NYC weather is affecting my mood and how I dress. It gets dark so early these days that I occasionally feel a bit depressed, and thus gravitate towards darker colors. I can’t imagine living anywhere else in the world, but NYC during the Winter definitely challenges my love for the city. But fear not, because I added some red tights and sparkle with sequin booties for this outfit, so it’s not all depressing!
This embellished sweater is a fun take on a classic black turtleneck and great for the holiday season. It can be paired with a black maxi skirt like I’ve done here, or with high waisted jeans for a more casual look. Of course I went all out and paired it with my Maje sheer black maxi skirt that is one of my favorite pieces. This skirt always makes me feel statuesque whenever I wear it, it has quite an elegant effect. For a pop of color, I paired the skirt with red knit tights underneath. I love pairing sheer skirts with colorful tights, it’s a fun way to layer during the Winter.
I completed the outfit with silver booties from Dolce Vita. These boots could not be more perfect for the holidays and instantly glam up any outfit. I also chose a white box bag, black and gold medallion necklace, and round sunglasses. For my nails, I’m actually wearing press-ons from imPRESS manicure. I’ve gotten so many compliments on these nails and no one could tell they were press-ons! These are seriously so easy to do and saves me a ton of time when I’m in a pinch for a shoot. The ones I’m wearing are a special collaboration with Alice + Olivia, but they have tons of other designs as well.
