I laughed to myself when I thought go the title for this post “I was nicer today because I liked my outfit.” This is one of my favourite sayings because it is so true. It’s not that I am horrible when I don’t like my outfit, I am just simply nicer when I like what I am wearing. Also don’t you find that when you are out and about and someone asks you randomly to go for dinner, or drinks or an event but you can’t go because you don’t feel nice, it’s the most annoying thing. I love it when I am wearing a cute outfit that makes me feel good and most importantly it’s comfortable and I feel like I am ready for anything. Wearing a good outfit will make your day, you will confident, feel good and feel good enough to make unplanned arrangements.
The reason I love this outfit is because I always love wearing all black. It makes me feel so sassy and I love playing around with all black looks. People often say that all black is the easy option which is totally is but you can really smash an all black outfit; there is a difference to black jeans, black sweater and black boots compared to a killer black look.
To achieve a killer black look, follow these points.
- LAYER DIFFERENT TEXTURES LIKE LEATHER, LACE, KNITS, COTTONS AND SILKS.
- LAYER SILVER OR GOLD JEWLERY FOR AN EDGY LOOK. BLACK AND GOLD LOOKS SO GREAT AND SO DOES BLACK AND SILVER. LAYER AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE BUT STICK STRICTLY TO SILVER OR GOLD.
- GO SUPER TIGHT OR SUPER OVER SIZED TO ACHIEVE THAT “COOL” VIBE OR “SEXY, DON’T SASS WITH ME VIBES”
- THE ONLY COLOUR YOU ARE ALLOWED TO INTRODUCE IS WHITE. IT’S NOT CONSIDERED ALL BLACK IF YOU HAVE A BRIGHT RED BAG OR COLOURED SHOES.
- MY FAVOURITE ALL BLACK STATEMENT PIECES ARE LEATHER TROUSERS (I HAVE LINKED MY FAVE BELOW, I HAVE ALL OF THEM.) FLARED JEANS, BLACK LEATHER JACKET AND A FITTED BLACK COAT LIKE THIS STELLA McCARTNEY ONE HERE.
You may recognise this coat from my previous post here, I have this coat in camel and I loved it so much I ordered it in black. I then ordered the navy double breasted one, which you can see here.
I love how well this coat fits. It is so perfect for a formal occasion or work but pair it with leather trousers and sneakers and it still looks great. I love how it smartens my scruffy style but it is not too formal. I know this coat will last a lifetime and I now have a go to black coat. It may seem silly to have the same coat in different colours but after months of looking I just went with what I know I enjoy to wear and what feels/looks good. I was missing a structure black coat in my wardrobe so I am happy I finally have the perfect one. The fit is insane, it’s not like any other high street one; you really do get what you pay for and considering it is a designer coat it really is pretty reasonable.
My coat is from FARFETCH, you can buy it here. I am wearing size 42 and don’t forget to check out the other colours and the double breasted style here.
Sticking to my “strict” all black outfit rules which btw are just my rules that I follows. I made them up to suit what I like.
I only wore white with this look. I chose my new CHANEL Gabrielle bag, which I bought pre loved here. Well it was actually brand new but I bought it from this pre loved site because I wanted it before it was released in the UK. I bought it from someone who had clearly bought it in a mother country, a country that released it before London. It is also a great way to get new items cheaper depending on the currency at the time. Click here to browse more pre loved items.
My Golden Goose sneakers are my new obsession. I have always loves them from a far but they are pricey, so I stayed away. However that all changed when I saw white black and grey. Then with the grey star it was a no brainer. If I am honest I planned on wearing these now and then because I have a damaged foot (long story) and wearing comfy shoes is an essential for me. These shoes are soooooo comfy, officially the one base ball trainers I have tired that it actually comfortable. I love how scruffy they look, I love how well made they are and I love how they are simple but a little “fashion”. They come in so many different colours. I have listed the ones I have my eye on; you all know I like to buy things in bulk.
You may have noticed I also paired this look with boots too? I wanted to show you how flattering the trousers were with black angle boots and also how you can transform an outfit. These boots are one of my all times faves. I love the height and I can wear them all day long but also love them for the evening. The only place I could find them in stock is here.
Lastly, my leather leggings. I am legit a leather legging/trousers export now. I made it my mission to hunt down the best styles at different price points; I needed a few pairs and I wanted them different styles. If you scroll back to the top of this post, you can see the list of my fave ones. I have hinted down the best prices ones too. In this look I am wearing these ones here, size 36. They have been out of stock for months and came back in two days ago! I just bought myself another pair because they are my over all fave pair and the best priced. They are also not leggings, I prefer the trousers style.

Love the look!
Love your vlogs/blogs…..i’m one of those people who are waiting for you to upload things LOL. Absolutely love your style; i’ve taken so much inspiration from you and your style; even though, i’m one of your older followers, I can just adapt to suit my age. I’ve got the Bryce coat in the camel (got it for £400 last year…….couldn’t believe it). It’s absolutely exquisite and I couldn’t wait for it to get cold again, so I could start wearing it; I feel so nice in it. I bought a cheaper version from Misguided first and wore it for a while to make sure I did like it (not a coat I would normally go for until I saw Lydia wearing hers) and then bought the Bryce coat; definitely money well spent. I’m like you, in that I love “all black” outfits……keep your vlogs/blogs and inspiration coming; love seeing/reading/watching them! xx
