I am starting off this list with a dark and cool all-black outfit. It is consists of a black sweater, a black denim jacket, ripped jeans and leather boots. The rough feel that comes with the denim jacket and the ripped jeans can really give you that tough look that you may want to have fun achieving every once in a while.

This outfit can simply make you look so cute and adorable that I can easily associate with a beautiful tennis player. This black and white outfit just kills it. The white part is made of the white t shirt dress and the sneakers. The black part is represented by the black oversized denim jacket. I love this and it is easily my favorite outfit among the list.

As mentioned in another blog post I wrote about grey jeans, they have the unique feel that can’t be achieved with jeans of mainstream colors such as blue, black and white. There are times when we just want to dress in a low profile way that still looks decent enough, and the grey jeans in this outfit can do just that. Pair the jeans with a white vest top and a black denim jacket.

Wear with Red Hoodies & Skinny Jeans

I have to confess that I am as much a basketball fan as a fashion fan. If there is a bridge that connects the basketball world and the fashion world, it has to be the Air Jordan brand. Although I didn’t get the chance to really see Jordan play back in the days, his brand simply breathes black and red. So, everytime I see black and red, I think Air Jordan and I think greatness. That’s just my little story behind my love for the black and red color combination.
As a good example of wearing these colors, you can wear a red hoodie with a black denim jacket. Pair these pieces with black crop jeans and leather ankle boots to complete this smart looking outfit.

Washed Black Denim Jacket with Leggings & Boots

Wear is another outfit idea that uses one of my color combination: the black and red. For the top, wear a white v neck t shirt with a black denim jacket. Pair them with black skinny jeans and ankle boots. The final touch that turns the outfit from a typical outfit to a eye catching one is the tie-around-waist black and red plaid shirt. I like this kind of style so much that I actually wrote a blog post about how to style a tie-around-waist shirt or jacket.

There is a lot of things going on with outfit and I am referring to the beautiful way of the layering. You really have to dig into the details to appreciate how the layering make this outfit look so good. It consists of the oversized grey t shirt, layered under a comfy oversized green sweater. Layering over these pieces is yet another oversized item in the black denim jacket. That’s not all with the outfit. The black skinny jeans and the heels are there to keep you look lean and balance out the oversized top. The loose-top-tight-bottom is a trick that prevents you from looking clunky when you are wearing oversized items for the top.
