Black to Basics

Sometimes, when the clouds are grey and getting out of bed is just about the toughest hurdle to get over before starting your day, simplicity is what is needed. On those days, one just needs to go back to basics, and there no better colour than black to do that with in winter.


My favourite layering item this winter has to be this ribbed knit turtle neck that can easy go under just about anything and cause its not too thick, and stretches enough to fit comfortably over just about any light top.

I paired this with a simple basic pair of highwaist black jeans, which for one is a cut I love cause it best flatters just about every body shape and secondly, it can be easily be dressed up or down to suit what ever look you want to put together.


I have grown to enjoy dressing up in winter, I won’t lie, learning how to layer was my saving grace.
