I tend to think of wearing all black as a guilty pleasure, so easy to throw on anything and leave it to the texture to do the talking. This has been my favourite look as of late, just chop and change the accessories. I never thought myself a skater skirt type, but after discovering this shape looks so perfect under any/all chunky jumpers, I was convinced.

This Neil Barrett calf hair beauty has possibly been my favourite buys of the season, after falling hard for it in Malta (after seeing friend Anna of Completed Works in the same) it consumed me and I “had to have it”, even attempting to get it shipped to Malta – who knew that most shopping sites don’t even ship there… So I sat on my hands until we were back on home turf. Finally rewarded and it is possibly the perfect sweater, neoprene like arms and soft hair, turns any drab black outfit into something great.

    Such a gorgeous look Charlie. Love how much interest a bit of texture ads to an all black look.

    p.s. major swoon over that bag.

    Snug and slick. A Helmut Lang slouchy leather sweater was my last cool weather purchase. It’s now utterly season inappropriate (I’m melting in Australian summer) so I can’t wait for the cool to bring it out again.
