Back to Black

Over time many trends come and go, but there’s something endlessly chic and timeless about the colour black.

Theoretically, black is not a colour but in my closet it's a staple to formulate my outfits together on a daily basis. Whether it's black denims or a simple black t-shirt, you'll almost always see me sporting something black. Not only is black easy to wear, but it gives off a sophisticated vibe without having to mentally exhaust yourself trying to put an outfit together. The colour black in fashion has traditionally been associated with class, sophistication or even mystery, which makes it perfect for those looking to dress up or dress down.

In this case, I combined distressed black denims with a long blazer and tied the look together with my all-time favourite adidas sneakers. To accessorize, I wore a printed cap and my go-to watch from Medium Watches. My goal for this look was to elevate a t-shirt and distressed denim look by giving it sophistication with a long blazer. Layering is my best friend, especially when the weather fluctuates from hot to cold this time of the year as we prepare to roll into spring.

My friends at Matter Toronto recently launched their second headwear capsule collection.  Matter is a form of communication, empowerment & motivation for our generation to step out of their comfort zone, face fear & take the first step towards that idea, dream or wish. Their collections are a way of communicating relatable ideas and resonating concepts that challenge and stimulate the masses to turn their dreams into reality. Their minimal caps are the perfect accessory for those days you're too lazy to do your hair and/or just want to step out the door without having to think twice about how your hair looks. 

The best part about sporting all black? It has no boundaries.
