The Black Box: Kayla Barnes

The latest feature of The Black Box – Peeking into The Best Closets, features a dear friend who rocks a true stylish uniform. Kayla Barnes can always be found in her signature black garb and leather accessories. Kayla’s style inspires me because she knows what works for her and keeps it simple and classic. She doesn’t follow trends, but takes great fashion risks by incorporating cool androgynous pieces into her daily staples. Thanks for taking the time for the interview Kayla!
