Hello everyone! How are you? Fine Thank you.
Happy Friday! For the lack of posts this week (I did say that I was busy), I decided to make this post longer than usual. Now, if you’ve been following my blog, you know that I simply adore winter white and light, pastel colors. However, it’s not like I don’t wear black at all; a closet devoid of black is a sad closet. Black pieces have an special place in many fashionista’s closets and hearts, mine included. They’re quite versatile and easily stylish. And, of course, everyone needs some key black pieces in his or closet, right? The basics: a black t-shirt, blouse, pants, blazer, etc… And you can’t forget the little black dress. And since some black every now and then is also appreciated, today I’ll take a break from the light colors and talk a bit about black. Also, because it’s considered a taboo to wear black during the celebration of the Chinese/Vietnamese Lunar New Year, which is coming up, I had to get this out there. To start off, here’s some black pieces that I like:
Here are just a few of the ways I would style black pieces. If I were to make this any longer, the disparity in length would be unfair to my post about winter white. Since I have many more ideas, I might feature them in my Monday series just to give you some more inspiration for styling black. This is, of course, down the line and might be for transitioning outfits into Spring. But more on that later.
1. A Pop of Color
One of the basic techniques for adding colors to a predominantly black outfit is to use the neutral color blue. This includes navy blue but also the more eye-catching pop of cobalt or electric blue. However, this could also easily be changed up with bright shades of red or yellow. Aren’t primary colors awesome?
2. Black and White
Since I didn’t do White and Black last time, here’s an out fit that’s Black and White. It’s quite simple, but, to me, feels like it’s both classy and professional-looking while also looking casual and relaxed. My favorite of the three.
3. The Edgier Style
I couldn’t stop thinking of the 90′s and early 2000′s while I was putting together this outfit. I can’t do a post about favorite black things without featuring something more laid-back cool and faux leather pants. Forgive me if this isn’t your cup of tea.
Do you own a lot of black items? How do you style them? Which of these outfits would you wear? Leave a comment and let me know, and thanks for visiting. And thank you for the lovely comments on my previous posts. It means a lot to me.
