“Appearances matter — and remember to smile.” ― Nelson Mandela

Today’s Kez Style post is all black . I felt like it would be a great day to post an all black outfit to mourn the death but also celebrate the life of the black icon and great Madiba from South Africa, Nelson Mandela . As you can see the outfit incorporates alot of hard and soft textures . I loved juxtaposing the toughness of the leather with the knit fabric as seen in the blouse. I kept my hair in tight but soft curls to contrast the harsh and dark nature of my makeup to maintain the perfect balance , then I threw in some glam jewelry to confuse everyone while simultaneously overwhelming their senses with a hint of elegance. I feel like the balance in the hard and soft aspects of the outfit post reminds me a bit of the life of the freedom fighter Mr. Mandela who suffered under some of the most unspeakably horrid conditions struggling for a better South Africa. However in all his tribulations , he never became bitter but remained gentle and full of love.

Hope you liked the outfit.

R.I.P Nelson Mandela.
