There are a few stereotypes about people who wear all-black outfits. They either:
a) work in fashion,
b) live in Melbourne,
c) are in mourning, or
d) couldn’t decide what to wear and/or hadn’t yet done a colour wash, so settled on the only foolproof doesn’t-clash option.
Yet if you’ve ever written off the head-to-toe dark ensemble as boring, think again. Because Sunrise presenter Eddie Bartholomew and host Sam Armytage have just proved how it can be exactly the opposite.
Watch: Paula Joye on the one item every women needs in her wardrobe. Post continues after video.
Both women served Channel Seven viewers a lesson in dark hues on Friday’s episode. We’re talking sleek shapes, dramatic detailing and, of course, a killer pair of shoes.
“The clothes maketh the woman…feel like a hundred bucks. Lots of you asking for deets on today’s outfit,” she wrote on Instagram.
“For those of you not asking… Enjoy a gratuitous shot of ME haha!”
It’s a simple top and skirt combo, but with the addition of the bat wing sleeves and the cheeky split, it’s seriously striking and elegant – no bling or loud prints necessary.
Bartholomew’s outfit, on the other hand, was all about the shoulders.
