Black is my favorite color ever. I truly think it’s the color of my soul. I could wear black every single day. Actually I wear black every single day. Head-to-toe black. I am not myself with colorful outfits. I don’t mind looking like satan’s messenger as long as I look hot and wearing black can obviously make anyone looks hot as hell. So yes wearing black makes me feel more confident, sexier and thinner (really important cause pizza and fries aren’t helping).
But wearing an all-black outfit can easily go from a YES to a big NO. There are some rules to follow and mistakes to avoid if you don’t want to look like you sacrifice cats in the name of satan during your free time.
1) Mix fabrics
This is the first and most important rule. You want to rock a head-to-toe black outfit, mix your clothes fabrics ! Your outfit can look flat and monotone but if you wear different fabrics, it will add dimension to your look and make a huge difference. A pair of black jeans with a black lace top and a leather jacket, and you’re sure to look great.
2) Flashy accessories
One little flashy accessory and your look is completely transformed. Try fluorescent yellow handbag, fuchsia pumps…There are limitless ways to complete your outfit with a flashy touch.
3) One color rule
Wearing one neutral color such as beige, white, grey or even dark colors (dark blue, dark grey…) won’t show when wore with black. This way you add a little dimension to the look but it still has the all black outfit vibe.
4) Show off some skin
You can forget about all the all black outfit rules is you show off skin. Not mixing materials is fine. When arms, legs, or belly are shown, no matter if you’re wearing an all black leather outfit, it will look good !
Now the makeup is an important step when wearing black from head-to-toe. If you prefer to skip the flashy accessory part, focus on your makeup. Wearing dazzling red lipstick with a black outfit is the reason why I exist. All lipstick colors will look good with your black outfit. Also, don’t forget your nails. Flashy nail color and lips can almost be considered as accessories to your outfit.
Depending on your preferences, choose what’s best for you and be ready to look flawless in black.
