How To Style An All Black Outfit – Look Thinner + Save Money
“All black everything” is the new black
and a pop of bright bold color makes it memorable
I love wearing all black outfits – black is slimming and flattering, and it’s the easiest way to look chic without having a huge wardrobe, or without spending a lot of money.
The best thing about all black outfits, is that you can mix and match so many pieces from your wardrobe (as long as they are black) – because one black item will pretty much always match another black item.
ALL BLACK + ON POINT
all black and on point with a splash of sunshine yellow
I absolutely love yellow, it’s my fave color – so pairing an all black outfit with a bright splash of yellow is a no-brainer for me. But if yellow is not your thing, then you can always add a pop of red, gold, nude pink, lilac or teal instead.
THE BASIC BLACK JACKET
A basic black jacket is a wardrobe essential
A basic black jacket is one of those wardrobe essentials that every girl needs – you can wear it so many ways, and with so many different outfits.
If you can find well fitted black jacket, then you’ve hit the jackpot – but if it’s not the perfect fit at the store, you can always get it altered to fit you better.
I love a well-fitted “leather” (vegan friendly leather) jacket more than anything, but I also love a well fitted black blazer jacket.
BLACK LEGGINGS OR JEANS
Black leggings or skinny jeans can be your second skin
A pair of black leggings or black skinny jeans go with almost anything – and the tighter they are, the better (especially if you are going all black).
THE BASIC BLACK T
Wear it a hundred ways, with a hundred different outfits
Consider the basic black T-shirt your new BFF – it will be an even better friend to you than your plain white T, because it won’t stain and so the friendship will last longer.
