When it comes to dressing up to go out black is definitely my ‘go-to’ color (with the exception of nude/beige) However, I have those days where I just feel like wearing all black from head to toe. I know some may argue that the color that represents sexy, passion and desire for them is red – but Black is associated with power, elegance, formality and mystery.
That to me is sexy
The trick to pull this off into a fashionable, sleek and edgy look is very simple!
- Add leather
Black leather or faux leather takes your all black wardrobe to a whole new level whether its your belt, purse and/or shoes (Hell, you can even do black leather pants + Jacket) its just one of the ways you can spice up your wardrobe instead of wearing a solid color
2. Pop up Color
Pop up color is having one or more article of clothing (or accessory) a different color than the rest of the wardrobe.
There’s endless forms of incorporating this into your all black outfit – e.g Red lipstick
or if you want to stay under the radar nude or beige heels will do too.
My favorite part! There’s so many different ways to accessorize an all black outfit but one of my favorite ways is gold accents (Although, a silver boho ring set is also a nice alternative) or if i’m feeling like a minimalist a henna tattoo will do too. There’s literally endless possibilities.
I know scarves or panchos should be included in step #3 but I needed to make this a step all on its own. So many people think of a traditional jacket for cold or chilly weather but what about a long sleeve + scarf or even a poncho?! A month ago I went to visit some family in Colombia and brought back a hand made poncho – I wore it the entire first week I was here and almost everyone asked where I got it LOL I felt bad because I kept telling them ‘out of the country’ which is true! but they looked at me in disbelief as if I was BSing and didnt want share where I actually got it from LOL I am not one of those
What are some ways you spice or spunk up your all black outfit?
