BY NATALIE – All I can see is black! Well, except for the fact that I’m looking on the bright side as far as my bank balance is concerned 😉 That’s right – it’s time for Black Friday, the ultimate event of the year for shopaholics and bargain hunters everywhere! To mark the occasion, the theme of our outfit today has to be head-to-toe black!
As soon as the countdown to the legend that is Black Friday begins, shopping fans turn into little kids and look forward to the hotly anticipated event full of excitement. I am pleased to announce that the big day has officially arrived and the hunt for the top offers around has begun.
There is no denying that I love tracking down bargains. However, as I’m not all that keen on being overrun by an angry mob of shoppers, I choose to either trawl through the ultimate red-hot Black Friday deals the world wide web has to offer or celebrate the King of all Fridays in my own special way.
Joining me today is a self-confessed lover of black garments: Arne. We have decided to base our outfits on today’s theme in honour of this very special Friday.
As a Buying Assistant and dedicated fashionista, Arne has an eye for on-trend combinations – even when it comes to pieces in the same colour. At the heart of his outfit is a pair of jeans (in black, of course) from 7 For All Mankind. Teaming these with a striking Cheap Monday sweater, he has created a modern look that is finished off nicely with a patterned shirt from shirt specialists ETON. A clean pair of sneakers from Shoe The Bear really accentuates the sporty chic feel to this look. The Digel coat adds warmth and even more style to this monochrome outfit.
And now moving on to me! I’ve gone for a cosy, snuggly look in keeping with the faux fur trend. On that basis, the Pinko gilet is clearly the highlight of my outfit, which is centred around a modern knitted dress from Object with a high collar complete with awesome zip detailing. However, it was the extravagant neoprene ankle boots from Steffen Schraut that truly stole my heart. No outfit is complete without a piece of statement jewellery so I opted for an elegant Fossil bracelet. And the finishing touch to my look is a durable leather rucksack from Royal Republiq.
