Back in classic black
Coco Chanel once famously said;
“The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.”
And there is one colour, in particular, that looks great on everyone, happens to be suitable for all occasions and like my beloved ballet flats never goes out of style. I’m talking about the timeless wardrobe classic, the elegant black.
And speaking of timeless classics, this morning I decided to channel my inner Audrey Hepburn by wearing a classic pair of French Sole Amelie flats in the softest black leather, Capri trousers and cashmere cardigan. All I need is a pair of cat-eye sunglasses, and I officially managed to merge several characters played by Hepburn into one. French Sole’s Amelie style is the perfect casual, and yet oh-so-chic look suitable for lunch with girlfriends or a business meeting.
For the evening, however, I would opt to show-off my sumptuous black patent crocodile pattern Amelie flats. Stunning paired with a fashionable satin midi skirt, also in black, and a cropped knitted turtleneck sweater. It’s a subtle transition, but that’s what autumn is all about. It’s what I call the sophisticated season, not brash-like summer or heavy like winter it’s understated perfection.
So here I am back in classic black! Summer may give me the chance to wear bright shades and the subtlety of tan. Autumn is all about red and in winter I’m drawn towards blue, but the colour black goes with all seasons and all outfits. That’s why it’s a classic!
