Black! A girl's best friend! It is my favourite colour to wear because it is versatile, timeless, chic and practical!
You can easily elevate an all black look. To avoid looking like you are wearing a uniform, try these three tricks:
1. Vary textures. To create a visually interesting look, mix textures! Pair shiny with matte. Pair knits with a lightweight fabric. By mixing textures, you create contrast.
2. Vary silhouettes. To add personality and your own unique style to an all black outfit, vary the shapes and fit of your pieces. Mix a boxy t-shirt with a pencil skirt. Pair an oversized cropped cardigan with skinny jeans. Pair a fitted tank top with wide leg pants.
3. Add pops of colour. Use accessories strategically to break up your look. A fun pop of colour with a colourful purse, statement jewelry, or shoes will elevate your look. Colour is a fun way to add personality to any look. Colour includes white!
Also, don't be afraid to show some skin! Showing ankle or a bit of your neck, helps to break up the look!
Have fun creating your all black looks! Remember, your clothes tell a story. Make it a good one.
