Greetings, and welcome back to 22 Days of Fall Fashion! I wanted to style an all black outfit for fall as part of this series, and this is what I came up with.
It’s definitely more of an edgy look, but I tried to keep it casual with a t-shirt and snake print mules.
This hooded leather moto jacket was an #NSale purchase, and I’m really impressed with the quality and fit. I was hoping might get restocked eventually, but alas. No such luck.
If you like it, keep an eye on it, because I have seen a few random sizes pop up as they process returns. It runs true to size; I’m wearing the small.
Any black leather or faux leather jacket would work with this look, but I do really like how the knit hood gives the edgy jacket a more casual, sporty vibe. Plus, I love how you get that cool layered look without the bulk.
To keep the look casual and comfortable for daily wear, I wore a ribbed t-shirt and faded black jeans. These are the Good American Good Legs high waist crop skinnies, also from the #NSale.
Happily, they’ve been fully stocked, but currently are full-price. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep these or not, but recently, I’ve found myself reaching for them a few times, and I’m so happy I decided to give them a try.
They felt really tight through the legs at first, but once I wore them for a few hours, they loosened up just enough to be comfortable, but they don’t slide down at all. I wore them all day on Monday, and they stay put and feel really nice all day long.
This t-shirt is the Everlane micro-rib cap sleeve tee. I’ve worn it a lot this summer on its own, but it makes a particularly good layering piece for fall because of the body-con styling.
I always feel like a fitted top is more flattering under a jacket or cardigan than one that blouses out and adds extra volume in the mid-section.
This one is super soft and stretchy, and it has a flattering open neckline. I recommend sizing up, though. I have the medium.
There are so many footwear options for this outfit, but I decided on these snake print mules for two reasons.
For one, they keep it casual, since we aren’t going anywhere that requires dressing up these days. I would wear this to meet a friend for lunch, or to run to the mall, or even for general errands if I felt like being super chic at the grocery store. Ha!
But I also really like how they give a nod to the season. The rust and brown tones look very fall, while also adding some color and texture to the otherwise monochromatic outfit.
I carried a black bag to keep the monochromatic look cohesive, and beyond that, I only added one accessory. I felt like this look needed a statement piece, and I like the clean look of the outfit without a necklace, so I went for bold earrings.
These gold metal feather and chain drop earrings are lightweight, but they pack a punch. I love how they elevate the look, although I would be more likely to wear these out in the evening than for my daily errands. Any big earring would work with this, though.
What do you think? Would you wear it?
