All-black OOTD ft. River Island and ASOS

As you might have gathered from my Instagram, I wear a lot of black. It’s my favourite colour to wear, especially in autumn/winter. In fact, it’s rare that you don’t see me clad in black from September onwards!

I can understand why all-black outfits aren’t for everyone but they’re certainly for me. In my opinion, they look chic without even trying. They’re sleek and timeless. They’re understated but still make an impact. And that’s exactly why I love them!

This look is from a recent trip to London. It was drizzly, windy and I was full of cold sores so I wasn’t feeling the best but at least my outfit was cute! Silver lining and all that.

I’m obsessed with this aviator coat from River Island. The black patent faux leather is gorgeous! When I ordered it online, I thought that it wouldn’t be warm enough for everyday wear in the winter. But when I tried it on, I realised that’s actually pretty toasty thanks to the faux fur lining.

Not forgetting that fabulous faux fur collar, which helped keep the chill off. I liked the oversized fit too, it felt so cosy!  And of course, how amazing are the zip and buckle details?! They really set the jacket off and gave it some extra oomph.

I came across the boots on ASOS (in an adult size 2, yay!) and they’ve barely been off my feet in weeks! The heel height is ideal and they’re comfortable enough to wear all day, even walking around London. I can’t get enough of them!

I also can’t get enough of this bag. It’s one of my favourite buys this season and since featuring it on my Instagram, I’ve had a crazy amount of comments on it. It’s a great size and adds the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.
