How To Wear All Black

I love wearing head-to-toe black. It can look very chic and not at all boring, especially when styled with great accessories. If you don’t know what to wear, black is always a safe choice. It’s timeless, takes you from day to night and it’s the most flattering colour because of its slimming effect. The easiest way to elevate a basic all-black outfit is to add an element of interest with accessories. It can be a statement piece of jewellery, a bag or a pair of shoes in a contrasting colour and you can put the spotlight on them if you keep everything else in your outfit black. If you prefer to go monochromatic like me, try mixing different fabrics and textures. In these photos I’m wearing a leather skirt and a cashmere jumper and, as the weather gets colder, I would pair this outfit with a wool coat and suede knee high boots. Another great way to make a simple black outfit more fun is to wear patterned tights. This is also the most budget-friendly option if you want to add something new to your outfit but don’t want to spend too much on accessories. I would highly recommend Calzedonia for fashion/patterned tights – they have the best selection in my opinion!
