Style black clothes

Black blazer 

For the first outfit, I’m showing you guys something a little more business appropriate. My top is a really simple gray t-shirt. Any basic gray tee would do. I’ve paired it with a chic looking black blazer and added some gorgeous pops of gold with the accessories. I put on this chunky black and gold necklace, gold hoops, and a fun gold bag across my chest. For the bottoms, I got a little creative with some leggings and sweatpants. I put on black sweatpants over black leggings. The leggings peek out on top and bottom and create the illusion of a slimmer waist and longer legs. Then, I added that with a pair of black pumps to complete the look!

Keep it casual 

For the second outfit, I’ve kept the same chunky necklace and earrings and added a gold watch. Then, for the top, I put on a simple black tank top and covered it with a quilted jacket. I switched the black bottoms of some gray leggings and traded the pumps for black Nike sneakers. Because this is a more casual look, instead of a purse I went for a backpack. I find backpacks to be easier to travel with and more appropriate for a casual look.

Let’s get dressy 

This outfit is a great example of how dresses don’t need a season - it’s all about how you style them. In this case, I kept on the same sleeveless black shirt and black leggings for warmth. Then I put on the summer dress and layered it. I added a black belt with a gold buckle to give me some shape, and a gold clutch for a pop of color. Finally, I am wearing a gray coat and a pair of knee-high pointed black boots. I love a good boot with a dress, if you ask me it is what makes this outfit winter appropriate!

Business casual

Coming back to the blazer for a more business-like look, but this time I’ve paired it with a ruffled top and some lightly distressed gray jeans. Then, I added a pair of gray snakeskin shoes and switched my gold hoops out for some classy studs. Next, I added a gold watch. I decided to wear the backpack with this outfit too, for a more practical bag. This outfit is a favorite because of how functional and fashionable it is! 

I hope this tutorial helped give you some ideas on gold, gray and black clothes styling. I’d love to see some of the unique combinations you guys come up with!
