I don’t like frayed trousers at all, but I really love this frayed top. Of course in black and also with black combat trousers underneath. I think you will see a lot of black outfits from me this fall, just like the past six months. And the years before I think….. And I know that the hole world likes to see colours, but I love black. I also know that it is not easy to take good photo’s of black clothing, is that Gerben’s fault or the black clothing?, but I hope you see the details good enough.
Frayed top with a bit of sheer
But isn’t this frayed top nice? At first I thought: maybe I would have liked it better if it had been a bit more fitted. Now there is a strap, that comes along with the top, in the same fabric to tie it around your waist. And it’s actually much more fun, and normally I don’t like those straps at all. The top is a bit sheer so that makes it a bit more stylish. You see the combat trousers everywhere now, but this one is already a few years old. As well as the gun metal boots.
I first wanted to order kakhi combat trousers until I realized that I had a black one. And that’s often the case with me. Then you see something from the new collection and think: oh yes, I want one of those too. And then you already have it, Maybe in a different color or a slightly different design, but the principle is the same. So why buy a new item that is slightly different right.
Contrast with sheer and fraying
With the gun metal ankle boots I thought the grey super lightweight earrings matches perfectly. I am wearing a black ring that I bought in the cutest shop in the lanes in Brighton called Bou jewellery. A very lovely lady owns the shop and makes the jewellery herself. I wished I bought more. On the other hand, I can now save up for next time! Gosh, I love Brighton! What do you think of my frayed top? It will look good on jeans…….the one I have in my cart for a month now and is expensive and they won’t reduce it!!!

Absolutely LOVE the frayed top, Nancy! It’s so fun, and it can be dressed up or down. It’s perfect! I love how you styled it with the combat trousers (one of my favourite styles!). I would totally get the khaki ones too lol!
Have a great weekend.
Well, I saw a cargon skirt in khaki, very cool.
that top is a stunning! You wear all black so well Nancy. The texture of the top adds so much interest – perfect way to do a head to toe monochromatic look. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
So good, a lovely change of textures takes away any heaviless of all black look!
You look incredible. That top is amazing!
Nancy, this is a really cool top! And I love the way you styled it. This whole outfit is super striking! You know I love an all black ought, too. In fact, I shared an all black outfit today as well! Mine has some floral in it, but it is still mostly all black. Great minds share great style, don’t you think?! Happy weekend, my friend!
Oh I totally agree with you love! I forgot to say that I thought your hair looked so cool like that!
What a chic monochrome outfit! That top is beautiful! I love the texture! Have a wonderful weekend!

Many thanks for hosting, enjoy your weekend.
Thank you very much Jill and enjoy your weekend too!
I adore this look so much Nancy! There you go again with your metallic booties. I just bought a gold pair because of you. 🙂 The frayed top is so special and gorgeous! Thanks for the link up.
Haha, I just read it and they look fabulous! Thank you very much Kathrine!
It is such a fun, unique top. I love the whole outfit. Thanks for the party.

Love the overall sheer style. It’s classic and can be worn so many ways. https://www.bauchlefashion.com
You look so chic, Nancy-you do an all black look so well! The sheer fabric, textured design and fringe detail on the top add a lot of interest and make this outfit really special. Thanks for the link up party, and enjoy your weekend!
I am obsessed with this gorgeous outfit! I love that top and the metallic boots you paired with it! What a perfect date night outfit!
Thank you very much Laura!
I absolutely love this outfit, Nancy! That textured and frayed top is so special!
The earrings are gorgeous too, and how fabulous are those earrings? Even better that they double as holiday souvenirs! xxx
Indeed! Thanks Ann!
I LOVE this outfit so much, Nancy! I would wear that top all of the time and those boots are just fabulous! Have a wonderful weekend! XO
Thank you very much Caroline!
I LOVE the frayed top, Nancy. I used to have a cream one like that, that I adored – it eventually kept fraying and then yellowed, so I moved it along, but your black top is one I would have in my closet (so you can just ship that over to me, my dear friend! ha!).
Thank you so much for the link–party! Have a great weekend.
I will bring it over one day love! Lol.
I’m okay with the torn knees on jeans but I don’t like the frayed/ripped ends at all. However, I am loving this frayed top! It pairs so beautifully with those pants too.
I love this black top Nancy..its so beautiful on you! I hope you are having a great falll. Seeing all this green outside makes me miss my home in Seattle WA so bad. We moved to Las Vegas desert a year ago and I NO Like. ha ..working on going back home!
Oh I am sorry to read that you don’t like where you live. I hope you can go home soon.
That is a very cool top! Very unique and fun. I need to come up with more black outfits.
Haha, well you did!
Such an amazing outfit! Love the all black look and textures. Those boots are. great too!
Thank you very much Lizzie!
It’s a great design for the top Nancy, and I especially love it with the boots,
Thank you Jodie!
Making black look good is all about texture and contrast and you have lots of it here – the frayed top, the metallic boots. Love it
Very cool top! I’m with you on not liking frayed jeans. (Nor do I like jeans with holes.) But this top is fun. And yes, black is very hard to photograph.
I don’t like jeans with holes either, such a stupid thing! THanks Michelle!
That’s a really unique top, Nancy! It looks extra striking with black trousers and those boots too!

I love the top! Yes, black is difficult to photograph but texture definitely helps. Gerben did a great job1 Love the metallic boots too.
Thank you very much Emma!
I think I have heard a similar frayed treatment called eyelashes on some sweaters I have been admiring this season. Very pretty. Gives the blouse a great texture and I think makes it even more feminine and delicate. Great job, Gerben, photographing all the black. I rarely wear black but you wear it so well that it makes me want to add more to my wardrobe. You don’t look at all harsh in black like some gals can look. Love your lush locks and the way they frame your face.
Thank you very much Leslie! Your words put a smile on my face!
I love this shirt Nancy, the frayed detail is so stylish.
Thanks for sharing on #Chicandstylish today.
Thank you Jacqui!
