Hello, beautiful! It is with my great pleasure to introduce you to Sarah, our newest social media marketing intern. She is the best! Currently, she is in her junior year at Fisher college, is a vegetarian, & her favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. (mine too, so we obviously work well together) Anyway without further or due here is her first blog post!
An all-black outfit has been seen as an effortlessly chic look in the fashion world for ages. For me, black has always dominated my closet for the simple matter it is timeless, practical and so versatile! Monochrome outfits are great when you don’t want to worry about wearing something too bold or you are just looking for something to quickly throw on. All the simplicity doesn’t mean you have to look boring in the slightest though! Here are some of my favorite tips for spicing up your all black ensemble for the fall weather:
1. Black allows you to do basically anything your heart desires accessory wise. One of my go-to pieces to layer with is a faux fur vest. Playing with different materials and textures can take an outfit from totally drab to effortlessly fab! Throwing a vest on over a black top and your favorite jeans transforms the look into something instantly more glamorous. When I wear faux fur with an otherwise all black outfit I like it to have dark colored tips on the fur to tie the whole look together. On top of adding an extra layer of cozy warmth to my look, a faux fur vest always makes me feel like a fiercer version of myself, which is never a bad thing of course!
2. Adding a belt is another great way to enhance a monochrome look. Metallic belts or one a colored one are great for so many reasons. They not only add a stylish pop to an all-black background, but they are also super flattering! I often wear metallic belts with high waisted jeans to break up the look and put an emphasis on my waist. Not only do you already have a flattering palette going on with your outfit, but belts add in a great slimming element.
3. My last and favorite tip is to incorporate a print somewhere in the look, no matter how small it is! All-black outfits give you the perfect blank canvas to add a pop of print. Not everyone loves all over patterned pieces, me being one of these people. You can still add fun elements into an otherwise simple look though! I often chose my statement piece to be a purse. Whether it be a crossbody, clutch or a tote, it’s the perfect way to add just a little drama. I have always opted for signature logo bags as a way to throw some patterns into my outfits. Although this season my favorite handbags have definitely been ones that are a textured animal print!
Rocking all-black outfits should never feel boring. You can easily achieve this look in your own interpretation through the right accessories. Playing around with pieces in your closet can jazz up the simplest of outfits!
