After long time searching high and low for something perfectly flared, this high waisted specimen by Proenza Schouler just fit like a glove. Culottes you may say, not quite, and not fully trousers either, but I’m just about to move into this pair and gonna carry them a long way, all through the festive season and beyond. How my ankles will feel about that when the cold sets in is a different story, but sometimes unhealthy sartorial choices come first.

On another note, some may find all black boring, but I surely never will. It’s all about playing around with different surfaces in shapes of great tailoring. If you’re looking for some timeless black investment pieces yourself you’ll find a great selection in Net-a-Porter’s Evening Room.

Wool trousers by Proenza Schouler, cashmere turtleneck by Gucci, velvet blazer by Saint Laurent, shoes by Prada, bag by M2Malletier, watch by Isabel Marant, necklace by Marte Frisnes, gold earring by Melissa Joy Manning.

    I think some fine socks wouldnt ruin the outfit. And def would contribute to staying healthy.

    The black ensemble is brilliant! I adore the culottes, wish I were a bit taller to pull off the look as fabulously as you! I don’t think black on black is boring, on the contrary, it is classic, timeless, and très chic!
