Blackout - Breathe Carolina

EVERYTHING ELSE || c/o Charlotte Russe

Every time I walk out of the house wearing all black, my mom asks, "Diane, why do you look so gangster?" It's the funniest thing. In my opinion, I think monochromatic looks are the most chic looks and the most fun to experiment with. The trick is to play around with patterns and textures to make your look more dimensional and appealing. I paired this loose flowy top with tight pleather pants to give the illusion of more slender legs, as well. And, of course, my infamous boots from H&M gave me the height that I lacked because wearing black pants with black boots. But no look is a Diane look without a pop of color from a necklace, so I layered these these gold necklaces with turquoise beads to lengthen my body even more and to add some fun colors.

Let me know in the comments what your favorite monochromatic look is!


  1. Love your shirt, the open shoulders and back are so cool

  2. The cut of that top is just perfect, great look <3

  4. My favorite monochromatic look usually involves black, white and shades of gray. There is a 'femme fatale' vibe about this outfit (that I like). Must be the pants and those killer booties. I think I'm siding with your mom on this one as you sure look just about ready to take on the world, in a positive way, of course! ;)
