The Fashion Files… Blackout with a Splash of Pink

This week’s segment of the Fashion Files features a Lookbook collaboration between myself and a new brand called Lately, I’ve been in a black clothing kind of mood as shown in the Milan Fashion Week Groupie post I shared with you a couple of weeks ago.

You can put a turtleneck on underneath this kimono inspired blouse and still look fashionable during any time of the year. The tee-shirt is by Jennifer Lopez. The fabric moves just as easily as the kimono blouse which is what I love so much about J-Lo’s line of clothing.

The pants are a pair of high-wasted skinny jeans by Express and really emphasize the trendiness of this outfit, in my humble opinion. If you’re not into skinny jeans, then a nice pair of barely boot shaped jeans would also work. Or, you can wear a comfy pair of stretch leggings. The possibilities are endless and I cannot wait to share the other two outfits I’m showcasing by the fabulous
