OOTD / Textural Black

Tweet | Facebook | Email

Black has a bit of a bad reputation. While a reliable choice when you’re having one of those I-have-a-cupboard(s)-full-of-clothes-and-nothing-to-wear moments, and undeniably the most figure-flattering shade, every time I wear head-to-toe black someone seems to tell me to ‘cheer up.’ I take umbrage to this. Black may be seen by some as a boring, moody colour, but I think it’s a joy to wear and allows for equally as much creativity in assembling an outfit provided these rules are followed:

1) Play with texture. In the case of this outfit, my shoes are suede, my jumper sequinned, my coat a matte leather. Monotonous black? Hell no.

2) Keep an eye on the overall silhouette. Some tight bits, some loose is usually key. Skintight black suggests Catwoman, too baggy and a bin bag is called to mind.

3) Bronze. Just a touch in the right spots to warm up your skin. Unless you’re going for goth, in which case embrace the pale.
