Whether you’re a die-hard fan of wearing black – the type that operates under the mantra of “I’ll stop wearing black when they make a darker colour!”, or just looking for more interesting ways to wear the black pieces you already own, one thing is for sure when it comes to wearing all in black. And that is that it can make getting dressed decidedly easier.
Besides the obvious slimming effect of the shade, it eliminates the quandary of “do these items go together?” which can save you an endless amount of time and hassle. However, there are a few tricks that one should employ to avoid an all in black outfit from looking dull. The key is to ensure there is a good mix of different fabrics and silhouettes to add interest to your look. A chunky knit or faux fur embellishment provides texture and warmth, patent leather adds a sophisticated sheen and a hint of satin brings a fluid sensuality.
