Despite its popularity amongst women of all shapes and sizes, I have never been one for wearing all black, I find bright colours much more flattering and way more fun to wear. With my dark hair and pale skin, an all black outfit just feels a bit costume-y. Don't get me wrong, I love it on other people (Steph at Faiiint always looks amazing in black) but until now, I have remained unconvinced. As you can see though, this all changed last week when my Monki order arrived containing this rather lovely black jumper. I loved the mix of textures when I paired it with my (p)leather trousers and I felt super cool in this outfit, I definitely got my strut on!

I love the cut out shoulders on this jumper, it certainly makes a plain black jumper more interesting! I was quite pleased with how my hair and make up looks here too, not bad for one of my first outfits back in the real world after being poorly!
See what I mean about a mix of textures?! I'm pretty sure I have shrunk since I last wore these trousers, heels are most definitely necessary. I don't wear these shoes as often as I would like as me and heels are a bit of a lethal combination (comfort is most definitely a priority!) but they definitely help to make any outfit look much more elegant.
How would you style this jumper?
