Black is my all-time favorite color. In psycology, the color black is linked to power. It’s an intimidating color and indicates strength and discipline. Black doesn’t usually express emotions, rather, it conceals them, giving the person in black an air of superiority. The color black is also considered to be elegant and chic. A black outfit can be seen as more fancy than a colorful one. To me, it is my go-to color whether I have a special event or don’t know what to wear on a regular day. It never disappoints me in making me feel stylish and confident. Just like it does with me, I believe that black makes everyone look great. It might sound easy but it can be hard sometimes to combine all-black outfits. I have gathered a few tips to help you wear black:
- Combine different fabrics and textures. For example cotton, leather-look, linen, tweed. And think of shiny, matt, sparkly and so on.
- Mix a fitted piece and a wider piece in the same outfit. When you wear skinny pants, you can wear a wide sweater or blouse. When you wear a tight top, you can wear a wide skirt or pants.
- Add a little bit of color. Go with a colorful bag -shoes, a bold hat or a vintage bandana. Jewelry is also a good option to make the outfit interesting.
- Wear a bold lipstick color. This is my personal favorite tip to make an all-black outfit look stylish. The good news is that you can combine ANY color from red to purple.
