As the temperatures get cooler I tend to gravitate towards more darker colours in my closet. I know I am not the only girl that loves a good all black look. And, all black is a pretty good combo for almost any occasion. If I’m feeling blah I’ll wear all black, if I’m going to a cocktail party I always pull out an LBD, and if I don’t know what to wear to work all black is always my go-to, lol!
I stopped buying black when I started blogging to really challenge my style. But, I’ve slowly started to add it back in hoping to improve how I style it! I mean black is pretty easy to style, but sometimes it can look drab or a little gothic, lol. I’m not a fan of a drab looking all black outfit. So, here are my 3 go-to tips for rocking an all-black look:
3 Simple Tips to Rock an All Black Look:
1. Show a little skin
This may seem like a bad tip, especially for the colder months. But, hear me out. Showing just a little skin with an all black helps break it up. Now, I’m not saying A LOT of skin. Just even a little helps, like wearing a dress and showing a little leg. Or, even an off the shoulder top or even a choker sweater would totally do the trick. Just a little skin will go a long way in breaking up an all-black look!
2. Play with textures
All black can be really fun if you play with fabrics, textures, and prints! My outfit above doesn’t have too much crazy texture. But, the silkiness of the kimono gives it a more chic and classy vibe. Even a fuzzy bear cardigan would have been really cute for a colder day! Or, even try black velvet with a pair of black skinny jeans. Cause’ velvet is all the rage this Fall! Basically, have fun with different textures, lengths and patterns to bring an all-black look alive!
Okay, honestly I ran out of the house in this outfit and forgot to put on all my accessories! This was an impromptu shoot (usually they are much more planned, lol). I think it would have looked much more pulled together with my go-to gold bracelet and my favourite bar necklace! Accessorising an all-black look is another nice way to break up the black and just finish off the outfit! Even simple gold or silver hoops or a purse with a little hardware can go a long way!
