All Black Outfits

It is a truth universally acknowledged that winter totally sucks. The weather has me chain drinking cups of tea and eating everything I can find in the cupboards. My diet has got up and flown south for the winter. Today I covered cereal in chocolate spread and ate a concoction that can only be described as disappointment.

But there is one good thing about winter and that is that no one judges you for wearing all black. In summer, everyone looks like a Disney Princess in an ensemble of pastel. Wearing all black in summer leaves you looking like that creepy kid who never quite got over their emo stage and now resorts to scrawling Boulevard of Broken Dreams lyrics onto cubicle walls in public toilets.

But an all black outfit in winter is perfect. Black is flattering so hides the slight lumps and bumps caused by the post-Christmas food baby that you intended to lose in January but never quite managed to. It's an effortlessly cool but easy look - I mean, who really wants to get out of bed early to negate a stylish outfit when your bed is so cosy? And, most importantly, if you pair it with red lipstick you can look like Morticia Addams and I think that is secretly a style aspiration we all have.
