Recently I've been embracing a more minimalist aesthetic, from silk tops and crepe vests to tuxedo pants and classic pumps—all in a palette of black, pastel or white. I find it easier to incorporate accessories and focus on details when my outfit is simple and fuss-free. The story for this look: intersecting yet complementary lines.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Michael Mack of Michael Grey Footwear for a second time this year. For readers who are not familiar with Michael, he is the hands and heart behind the company Michael Grey Footwear—a line of handmade shoes for both men and women. Michael captures the best of vintage craft and fashion footwear design, which is why I'm a fan of his brand and know you will be too.
I love how the subtle stripes and slender metallic heel in his L'Amore court pumps complement the architectural and metallic elements in my outfit. Despite the simplicity in color and design, the details are what bring this outfit to life. Lines work to guide the eyes and luxurious accessories complete the look.
What do you think about my outfit and how would you style your black patent pumps? Thank you for reading and have a great week!
