Nothing to wear. Not one thing. You put in a valiant effort to get that chic look, but…alas… NOTHING. You’ve been shopping for years and years – but still nothing to wear. Sound familiar? Also, are you out of hangers despite not having one thing to put on. Solution? Wear black. All black everything. Genius! A black outfit. Instant chic, right? #maybe.
Yes – a black outfit can be THE most chic and no fail outfit. However, it can also be the-most-boring. How do you differentiate? Easy. Just remember these seriously-simple guidelines …
Try Textures!: Play with peplum, add quilted (like the vest I have on), or cozy it up with a chunky knit. Keeps the vibe fresh and modern. Street style. Another perk of textures with an all black outfit? Throw on a few different types of textures to your outfit! Think coated black leggings, a chunky wool sweater and suede OTK boots.
Faux Fur!: Perfect time of the year for the faux. Cozy, chic and keeps your look on trend. A scarf, shawl, pop pop hat – Done and done!
All About Accents!: Since you’re keeping the rest of your black outfit simple, you can easily get away with throwing on that fringe scarf or statement necklace or a bold bag. Notice how accenting with one color will POP!
Sparkle!: No better way to show off some shine than with an all black outfit. You will-not-believe the bling! Pile it on! Layer on bracelets, bangles, and baubles!
Loving the Lace!: Sheer, sassy and sophisticated. Upgrade your black outfit in an instant just by adding a lace top, cut-out cardigan, or detail in your shoes. Always a classic.
