I often dismiss classic colors as “boring.” However, some of my favorite looks are solid black. How’s that for a double entendre?! This outfit, for instance, received the most attention during New York Fashion Week. It goes to show you that classic colors really aren’t that boring after all…they just have to be “done” right! Hear me out.
One of the easiet ways to take your classic ensemble to the next level is to create dimension! Consider mixing black and white stripes with black and white polka dots. But if mixed prints freak you out, dabble with different textures instead. Think tulle and leather, or leather and lace. Catch my drift?!
A black dress is like a blank canvas. It literally matches with everything. Cease the opportunity to think big. I’ll be the first to admit that this outfit would not be half as interesting without the earrings. That is the power of jewelry! If you’re lacking in that department, my friends over at BAUBLEBAR will gladly help.
Finally, when all else fails, color pop! In this ensemble my earrings and lipstick act as the “poppers,” but your purse or shoes can play the role too. It is amazing what a little color can do! Now you just have to decide between pink or red.
