I’ve been finding it hard to add color into my wardrobe because everything is so gloomy during the winter. Sunny days are hard to come by especially since I am inside a building all day. I have to be honest that on most days I just want to stay in my warm bed. But when I have to get up to be an adult I am tempted to wear all black. To break up the black on black, I have mentioned navy and cream. I haven’t talked about using gray with black at all.
I like to add a little gray to my outfits every now and then to contrast with black. It is not a bold color which I like and it is very easy to work with because it is so neutral. In this outfit I wore everything in black except my gray jeans. These particular jeans are from trusty Old Navy. I will have to say that wearing gray jeans can be tricky because they aren’t as flattering on the body as a pair of dark jeans. It’s essential to find a shade that you feel good in. I chose to go up a size up in my jeans for a looser fit and I felt more comfortable in that size than a smaller one.
I wanted a edgier outfit so I threw on a graphic top and one of my favorite jackets this season. I love this jacket because of the hardware and its texture. I threw on a pair of black booties and called it a day. I still like to roll up my jeans even though it’s winter because as a petite gal shorter jeans are hard to come by. My solution = roll it up.
