Black and white all over

January 30, 2020

I'm a neutrals person, no matter how often I try to add colour into my wardrobe, I always end up going for black. Instead of fighting it, I'm embracing it. Knowing I can get so much wear out of something if I choose the right colour feels comforting and slightly responsible? If Jennifer Aniston can get away with it, why not me? One thing Jen doesn't do that I did here is change up her hair. She is fully branded, and I respect that, but I'm still trying to be a little less predictable. I want to change it up and make my wardrobe pieces look different each time because, unlike her, I can't afford to keep replacing one black dress with another. I need the same black dress to look new each wear. "Styling" clothes differently isn't only achieved with accessories. Hair and makeup can do wonders. I've never been big on either, self-proclaimed, I have the worst hair ever. It's thin and flat, and I usually just let it air-dry straight out of the shower. I don't put a lot of thought into my hair or makeup, I've always cared way more about the clothes than anything going on up top. But, because I usually leave it down, when I do something different, it really becomes a look. Though it's the messiest, quickest version, I honestly feel like this top-knot is what makes my outfit here. It adds an element of sophistication to an H&M top and sneakers that every teenager in high school is wearing. Certain aspects of "the look," like the sharp lapels of this jacket and the stunning shape of these sunglasses, get their moment. My hair can be such a security blanket, even if it's subpar, If I have breakouts, or feel like I have 20 chins, having my hair down can make me feel better. But this year, I want to try to find confidence in having it back because 50% of my wardrobe needs it.
