How to Master the All Black Outfit Like a Pro
The secret behind mastering the black on black look is through texture, fit, silhouette and adding a statement piece!
- Texture. The key to making an all black outfit work is to mix texture! There are so many options but some of my favorite textures to mix are faux fur, leather, lace, silk, denim, velvet, wool and cashmere. Just have fun with it! In my outfit, I’m mixing denim, with my faux leather bag and silky top. The mix of textures will really make the different pieces pop and it will add dimension to your outfit while not looking flat!
- Fit. Another important factor for making this look work is the fit of the clothing. If it doesn’t fit you (too big or too small) or just looks off, chances are it won’t look polished. Take it to a seamstress, trust me it will make a huge difference!
- Create a Silhouette. Black is such a strong color creating a bold silhouette. Choose items with interesting lines to enhance the silhouette of your natural curves. You can do that by wearing items such as a long skirt, peplum top, wide leg pants, culottes, etc.
- Add A Statement Piece. Whether it is an accessory (hat, scarf or piece of jewelry), add something to your outfit that will add interest to your outfit or make it pop a little more. In this outfit I’m wearing here, I added a watch as a statement piece to my look.
