The total black look is the most popular choice for those who have no desire to think what to wear, but want to be elegant and stylish at the same time. And my favorite way to do that is by wearing a total black look with a pop of color, like this one here. As much as I love seeing total black outfits on other people, I feel that they don’t suit me much, so I always add something white or color, even when I have the best of intentions to complete a solid black look! That’s what I did again on this off-duty total black look.
One of the keys of creating a successful total (or almost total) black look is playing with silhouettes. So since I wore a simple pair of black skinny jeans, I paired it with my favorite oversized frill shirt (remember this look?), to create some contrast between the silhouettes. I also made sure that the black tones of these two pieces are exactly the same, otherwise the outfit looks off and cheap.
I finished with this Levi’s denim vest that I found on a vintage store, and my favorite combat boots from Balenciaga. The second color pop item is my pink Chanel chevron bag which is one of my go-to items to add some subtle color pop to my outfits.

I love this look on you! I love an all black look too; in fact, I’m wearing all black in my post this week too… just with a lot of bling on top. Your pink bag is so very versatile; it really adds something to everything you pair it with.
You look stunning here, and these photos of you and Paris are absolutely gorgeous. xxx
If it’s the bling I am thinking about, then I am dying to see this! That’s how you wear a total black outfit like nobody’s business! 😉
Oh I absolutely love this pop of denim Stella! This is definitely the perfect off-duty look for a classy everyday mood 🙂
I hope you have a great start into this new week! Sending lots of love from Munich to Paris 🙂
So glad you like it sweetie! Have an amazing week! xoxo
I so love that look, Stella. Specially the black frilled shirt. I so want one in my wardrobe. But how to style it. Definitely with skinny black jeans: something red around the neck, and a little belt to pull the shirt into the waist. But would it work?
Hmm I don’t know if creating an extra frill with the belt would work. I love the silhouette of this shirt so much that I wouldn’t add anything else on top. On the other hand I can’t try this to tell you with my huge belly right now 😉 Happy Monday! xo
Thank you for your advice. I do hope you get to wear that shirt when you get your figure back.
Also the white multi frill dress.
it is so lovely.
You look stunning in this outfit, Stella. I’m sure you would look just as beautiful in all black. I’m so in love with those shoes…they look super comfy!
Thank you Yvonne, glad you like it! xx
I love this look! The denim jacket and pink bag is such a fantastic pop of color. The boots though, are soooo incredible.
Ahh, I love wearing black and actually miss wearing all-black quite a bit. I just live where it’s so warm and it doesn’t get cold at night, but fingers crossed I’ll be back in all-black again soon lol
You look stunning my dear! Pregnancy looks really good on you! Very, very sweet!
Stella, your style is always so on point and fierce. You always do such a great job at mixing colors and textures. And you could totally pull off an all black look! Hope you’re having a great start to the week!
You look amazing pregnant, Stella. Love your denim vest. You are so cute! Great styling as always!
Thanks for the inspiration!
Always love a good black outfit! Loving the pastel pop of colour with the bag too!
Have a wonderful time in Paris lovely
