The Iconic All Black Look

Seven timeless pieces for a stylish January.


January, the month when your budget bounces back from holiday spending, all while navigating the lure of January sales. 

As a social media creative, or just as any other young adult in 2024, I feel not only oversaturated with upcoming releases from various brands but also slightly confused about whether I actually need that item or it’s just a passing phase.

The perpetual query continues to loom: Is this acquisition a bona fide necessity, or merely a fleeting fancy? Knowledge, they say, and I suppose it’s important to explore possibilities and invest your money into things that are not only of reasonable quality and ethical standards but also items that have a long-lasting value, potentially a good resell value and prove durability over time.

Unabashedly, I confess that if I do decide to purchase an item, I want to be aware of its potential resell value over time, and there’s nothing to be avoidant of, as it’s widely considered a sustainable way of shopping. 

Furthermore, I myself choose to buy preloved items, hence why I suppose I can consider myself a fashion lover who contributes positively by appreciating and accessing the preloved fashion market.

When it comes to winter, we’ve seen in the latest fashion week’s shows that the cold season can be very colorful and bright.

However, as a minimalism lover, I have to say I remain enamored with the all-black looks mostly for winter. They’re not only easy to style when you’re on the go, but they are timeless, many times sustainable, and can be repeated effortlessly.

After going back to the Sex And The City 90s aesthetics and doing some research to observe what contemporary fashionistas are focusing on for their long-term wardrobe choices, I came to a conclusion. Black never goes out of style. 

Keeping that thought in mind, here's a timeless selection that will keep your style up to date regardless of trending phases
