Layering, the color black & shredded jeans! Oh, and choker necklaces :) I went out with my husband for date night last night and this is what I wore. Earlier in the day I wore a grey (last season-elle G) chill tank and yoga pants. Nothing exciting so I wanted to have some fun with my outfit for dinner. The best outfits come to me when I have minimal time to prepare. The temperature was cooling off so I figured it be best to wear pants. The black blouse was sheer so it was very lightweight. The vest is very light as well, more of a decoration piece.
The jeans were just the right fit for this layering project. Not too loose and not too tight. If I had paired the tops with tight jeans the outfit would have had a completely different feel. It would have been slightly edgier than what I was going for. The black sheer blouse had a long hem on the back. This made for a perfect pairing with the vest over it. The top and the vest were both black but different materials and different lengths showcasing the layering aspect. This outfit had a menswear/borrowed from your boyfriends closet feel. To keep it edgy, masculine and girly all at the same time I did not wear a tank top under the sheer blouse. Instead I wore a pretty lace bralette over my bra. It was noticeable but not in your face. The vest has satin lapels which spiced up the outfit a tad. I chose the black wedges for the pure fact that they are so chunky. Something strappy and delicate would have added to much "prettiness" to the outfit. I kept the jewelry simple with a small silver chain and a silver choker to match the studs on the blouse. Hope you enjoyed it!
