When black dominates your wardrobe (and proud of it, I might add), it's the finer details 
that help up the interest factor time and time again. Elegant high necks, metal-tipped toes
daring thigh-high splits and tailored leathers are my current vibe, adding that modern 
touch to timeless classics. 

Any excuse to wear top-to-toe black all day everyday, right?

Taking denim out of the day and into the night, this time with the help of my gorgeous 
friend Sara

Keeping with the theme of J Brand's latest 'Seriously Black' collection, we clearly have no 
qualms in going top-to-toe in this non-colour when dressing up our jeans for the evening.

It's all about balance and proportion when working your denim for a night out, letting it act 
as the base for more interesting and dramatic silhouettes. In this case, wide flare-sleeves
flowing strapless tops and sleek tuxedo blazers were the name of the game, all anchored by 
a sleek minimal heel and clean clutch

That, and having a coordinating partner in crime in the style stakes just sort of seals the deal. 

There is strength in numbers, after all.

Took these black skinny jeans for a spin courtesy of J BRAND to celebrate their 
new 'Seriously Black' range, with this first of two looks being all about off-duty 
denim.

Oversized outerwear, a clean white tee, sleek ankle boots and simple accessories - 
it's all about getting back to basics when it comes to denim-based daywear. 

All in classic black and white, of course.

This is how I do my denim off duty. How do you do yours?
