January 10th, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: Anything But Basic in An All Black Outfit

As the old adage goes, “When in doubt, wear black.” While new colors may be hailed as the “new black” year after year, wearing all black outfits will always be classic, chic, and in style. However, understandably, black can get a bit boring after a while. The trick is finding statement pieces that will stand out and bring interest to your outfit. Check out some of my tips for creating anything but basic, all black outfits!

Play With Proportion

Pairing an oversized sweater with tailored trousers and slip-on loafers creates an effortless yet chic all black look that is anything but boring.

Embrace Textures

Knit, patchwork, fishnet, faux fur, and lace: these textures and more will help an all black outfit stand out from the rest!

Show Some Skin

Showing a bit of skin, even with just cropped bottoms or short sleeves, will help balance an all black outfit.

It’s All in the Details

Adding a pop of color using accessories, like this brightly colored statement bag, will catch the eyes of your peers and keep you from losing yourself in all black.
