Black is something most women have an excessive amount of in their closet.
With the notion, “black makes you look thinner” echoing in everyone’s mind, it is the foolproof color seemingly always chosen. It’s not just something to make you look slimmer; it's also a shade that goes with everything. So, for those of you with closets bursting with this somber dye, here are some great ways to wear it and still look chic.
Layering is a key element to rocking black. An all black outfit can quickly begin to look boring if you don’t use dimension and texture. Investing in a great black scarf is a must, especially in these colder months. You can easily toss it over a black jacket to add interest. Don’t worry too much about your blacks not matching. To make wearing various shades of black look purposeful, choose pieces in various fabrics, for example, pair a satin jacket with a pair of sateen pants. The blacks won’t match exactly because of the different fabrics, but it won’t look as though you tried and failed to make it work.
