How To Pull Off A Black Wardrobe

There was once a time that I didn't wear any black at all. Now it's pretty much all I wear, especially in the winter. The majority of my clothes are black or grey and I don't mind at all. It's chic, it's simple, and it makes me feel like a million bucks. Actually, it makes me feel like Catwoman. Here are some tips for wearing black-on-black and keeping things monochrome without looking boring.

Layer, layer, layer! Layering gives depth to an outfit, especially when you're just wearing one color. A black t-shirt goes great under a black leather jacket or cardigan. Throw a black jacket on over a black dress and you're good to go! I even added a black and gold necklace to this little ensemble. See my guide to layering here

 

 

choose statement pieces

Choose black or grey pieces that will really stand out, like this oversized sweater. Statement pieces have some unique element (as in, they aren't just a black t-shirt). Think oversized or a fun texture. If you're going to wear a statement piece, go light on accessories and just throw on a cute pair of jeans and boots.

ADD SOME GREY OR WHITE

Adding in some grey or white to your black wardrobe can help balance your wardrobe out. It will still keep things simple, but will add another interesting element. The great thing about a black and grey wardrobe is that you can just pile it on without having to worry about clashing colors. 

 

accessorize

 

Accessories can make or break any outfit. Black shoes, a black necklace, black sunglasses, a black hat, a black scarf...all these elements will help put the finishing touches on your all black outfit and complete your look without complicating it. Play around with different black accessories with your look.

I personally prefer the simplicity of a mostly black wardrobe. It requires very little thought, but you still look amazing! The key is to keep it interesting by layering, wearing statement pieces, adding in pops of grey or white, and accessorizing well.
