Guysss, you can pretty much NEVER go wrong with black on black. (Remember this lacey number?)
It's SO classic, that it just always works. You know?
Honestly, when I'm in no mood to get creative with outfits, I slap on an all black outfit, and it actually looks as though I've made an effort. (But really, I have not. Shhh, that's our little secret...)
Also, what's really great in playing up an outfit, and I've said this many times on the blog, is accessorizing. Throw on a cute pair of sunnies, wear bolder shoes, and go hard with your bag game.
Somehow, it all just works.
I have to talk about this clutch!!
Firstly, can we talk about how Chic Confidential-esque it is?! Scroll to the bottom to get a closer look at the pattern. It's the same pattern as The Chic Confidential logo. So, when I saw it, I obviously NEEDED it in my life, because a crocodile print/textured clutch is everything.
Let's also talk about the designer of SEA and SALT, Corinne Furniss. More than anything, I love it when something is Canadian made. And moreover, I love it when the designer is a Ryerson University alumni! Yes, I'm a bit bias because I'm a Ryerson alumni.
She's also an avid traveler and gets her inspirations through the needs of travelers and art. Learn more about her here.
This piece is one of my favourites from her collection. Not only does it scream Chic Confidential, but it's also a juxtaposition of classic and unique. Classic, for its black and white palette, and unique, for it's triangular shape.
I love that it can be dressed up, or dressed down. The clutch is 100% vegan leather, (SO MUCH YES) and kinda the perfect accessory for traveling. It fits all the necessities; your passport, cell phone, lip balm, and money. Not to mention, you'll be the chicest looking person at the airport. ;)
And if white is more your thing, it ALSO comes in white.
But seriously, is this not the cutest damn clutch you've seen?
I'd love to see the way you guys style it, so tag me in your pics at #ChicXSEAandSALT on Insta, Twitter, or Snap me your looks at kim-marquis.
Thanks to SEA and SALT for the clutch. As always, all opinions are my own.
