There’s a time for vibrancy, but when you’re tired of wondering whether lemon and mauve go (they do not) 😏 .. know that darker tones always have your back.
Black is always the new black. It’s never a ‘Colour of the Year’ because it’s the lack-of-colour of every year – the shade that won’t clash, won’t add pounds, and won’t tell tales when you pour a glass of Champagne down yourself. It’s as happy at work as in clubs, or shutting down the front row. But it’s happiest in certain staples, the inky workhorses every wardrobe is built on.
Of course I’ve written an editorial on how to wear an All Black outfit, more than once in fact, because really, you can ever go wrong with black and there are so many different ways to make all black happen perfectly, for today’s outfit, it’s not exactly my preferred dapper style, but it has more of a rock star vibe, I’m paying more attention as well to the shoes in this outfit, so let’s talk guys 😉
First about the shirt jacket I have on, This jacket is a game-changing new piece. And there’s a reason we keep seeing these season after season. This piece has become the go-to casual choice and, like any popular garment, has a price point to suit all. Not the usual everyday jacket but definitely cool enough to make you stand out!
My favorite color to pair with black is gold!! And that’s not about to change 😅 Not even in this editorial!
Like I mentioned earlier, I’m paying good attention to the shoes used for this editorial. They’re gold snake skin loafers crafted to perfection by Nigerian shoe brand @313eko shoes. You know guys, Good shoes are the bedrock of a man’s wardrobe – the foundation on which everything else lies, and sometimes that’s exactly what you need to make your all black outfit special.
Of course shoes that come in gold will always be special, when worn with anything! What’s more, they look even better when worn with an all black outfit because then, the focus is on them.
So guys, if there’s one thing you’re going to take away from this editorial, let it be that when you want to wear an all black outfit, make sure the shoes are a pair of statement shoes!!
This shoot was also a campaign shoot for @313eko shoes so I was joined by a friend and fashion icon that you probably already know, Noble Igwe, for the shoot 😊 .. He rocked a leopard print slip on loafers himself, and that navy trad is popping!
Thank you for reading guys!
