Black is my happy color! I have heard a lot of people say this, and I, too, fall under this category. It is undeniable that black is back in style. An entirely black outfit can be somewhat lacking in visual appeal; the key is to use your imagination and to remember to mix things up a little. If you want to look utterly chic in black, why not experiment with some of these looks?
1. Fun with fur
Yay! Winter’s here, and black furs are so adorable. But don’t draw the line at a black fur coat. If you want to double your fun, try doubling your fur. Buy a lightly furred sweatshirt and wear it underneath a fur coat. It looks amazing. Olivia Palermo sported this get-up at the opening of Club Monaco Store in New York.
2. Graphic tee
Black graphic shirts are bold and eye-catching. They demand one’s attention. To push this look all the way to the cutting edge, try teaming a black graphic tee with a black mini-coat. How drop-dead cool is that? And to top it all off, add a hint of red to your lips.
3. Tulip dress
A black tulip dress with a closed neck is absolutely chic. You can just leave your hair loose to add some easy spark and dynamism to your look. Accessorize with black or gold jewelry. Silver has long been the standby for accessorizing black. Try gold for a fresh twist.
4. Pencil skirt
I’m a big fan of a flared skirt, but, these days, the pencil skirt rules supreme. Flattering for girls of every shape, the pencil skirt is always classy and elegant. You can wear it to work and look incredibly chic. This look is perfect for all women who go to offices; get a black pencil skirt and match it with a black shirt for a polished and mysterious look.
5. Lace or mesh dress
Whether short or long (that is a personal choice), lace and mesh dresses are sexy. This is a perfectly stunning look to try out at a formal event or dinner. Or, you might surprise your boyfriend one night with this sexy black look.
Black can be worn in a limitless number of ways. From jeans to skirts and dresses, everything looks exquisite in black. However, you must know how to carry it off, since black demands a rockstar attitude for sure. I hope these five fun ideas will help you to kickstart your winter in black!
