Hello Beautiful People!
A few weeks ago, I got a very special request asking for some tips to style all black outfits! Thanks to @Partiallychic for sending in this request!
Never have I ever met a person who doesn’t own black color clothing. There’s just something about it that’s so classy and effortless. Even though it’s effortless, styling all black attire can sometimes be very confusing! So below are a few easy tips which may come handy the next time you think of Black on Black fashion.
Tip 1) Choose Your Accessories Carefully
The biggest advice I can give you is to choose your accessories with all black outfit with caution. It’s true that accessories can either make or break your outfit. Let your accessories set the tone for your outfit as casual or dressy. For example: For my outfit 1, I’m wearing a black top with black ripped jeans along with burgundy pumps. Swatch the heels with sneakers and add a denim/utility jacket and your outfit will instantly become casual.
Tip 2) Decide on a color palette
Think of a color palette when you’re styling all black clothing. I personally like to go for a minimalistic look because I believe black can make a strong statement on its own.
Some of my essentials are nude lock heels,
a white classic watch, this one is a recent addition to my wardrobe and it’s from Eila Cherie which is a female focused brand and represents a community based approach to female entrepreneurship. Also while adding jewelry to your outfit, stick to one tone and don’t mix gold/silver or rose gold because it can end up looking a bit inexpensive.
Tip 3) What’s your element of surprise
Decide on what’s going to be the one thing that’s going to be an extra ordinary element in your outfit. If you look at my outfit in the below picture, I wouldn’t add another statement piece because one shoulder itself is a great detail in this dress which I want to emphasize. For this outfit, I have worn a very delicate necklace. I wish I had a good bangle or bracelet coz my outfit kinda looks incomplete without one haha!
This tip kinda circles back to my tip 1. If your clothing is simple, make sure to add an extraordinary element like a popping pair of shoes, or a statement belt, or a statement pieces of jewelry.
So these were my 3 tips to remember when you’re planning to slay an all black outfit. I hope you found this post helpful. Which look was your favorite? 😊
