How to wear head to toe black March 30, 2015 07:49
Rocking head to toe black does prove to be challenging to some since it's very easy to fall into categories such as goth, burglar of the night or old woman in mourning. It does require a degree of creativity to make a limited palette look fresh and punchy. So, if you are like myself and prefer the monochromatic look, here are some basic tips to help you pull it off.
Mix it up -No two pieces of black are the same shade, but that’s ok so long as you’re mixing up fabrics and textures.
Strong Silhouettes - Make sure the outfit is fitted and well tailored. Wide leg trousers are a big win and very chic. Paring black wide leg pants with a same shade fitted top, creates an illusion of an all in one.
Bold Accessories - Think oversized sunglasses, jewelry or clutch. Colorful heels are always a good choice as well.
Show some skin - Bare skin doesn’t always mean legs and chest. Experiment with some other areas for a classy take on showing a little skin. A daring cut can be a true fashion statement.
Hair and Lip – Take the look from day to night with a simple change of your lipstick or hair.
