I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that wearing an all black outfit is a win-win situation. This is the most flattering of colors and when it comes to chic, it really can’t help itself – it can’t be beaten. As much as i’m into big color trends such as red, yellow, pink etc, let’s get real: Nothing will ever replace our beloved black; all black outfits can be amazingly interesting and chic.
Monochromatic outfits are always fun to style but I think black monochromatic outfits are the most difficult. Wearing all black has long been equated with all things goth and while that may have been a stage many of us went through in middle and high school, I’m going to assume that goth as an adult is probably not the look you’re going for. I’d categorize this look as more of a chic look, one of my favorite trends of all time.
There’s nothing sleeker, more minimalist, and easier to pull off that an all-black outfit, and the shade is able to take on various personalities, from ultra-femme with girly black skirts and silky blouses, to badass with ripped black jeans and an oversized black sweater.
Then there’s the almighty little black dress, beloved by cocktail drinkers for centuries and by Audrey Hepburn/Givenchy fans since Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Play it straight or diversify with sequins and cut-outs; alternatively add a fringe like mine. Introduce leather panels or accessorise with a complimenting fascinator.
There are several factors that I like to keep in mind while planning my all black outfits, ones that I think do a nice job of keeping monochromatic black chic and modern.
Makeup – Wearing a pink or a soft red always softens the look, while dark eye makeup and a bold blood-red lip will steer you towards a more vampiric look. Choose a shade with a slight glimmer for an even softer look.
Jewelry – gold, dainty jewelry is my go-to with black monochromatic looks. Gold instantly pops and creates a much more glamorous outfit. I personally would avoid spiked jewelry or an abundance of piercings.
