Half past 8 o’clock in the evening. Isn’t it your favorite summertime as well? The end of the working day when the sizzling hot sun goes down and layer up the streets with its golden beams… This time of the day spreads out some magic. Among other things, that’s one of the best moments for taking pictures.
Today I felt like saying NO to the colors and giving a green light to all black outfit. I realize more and more how multifaceted the black color is and, as a result, my wardrobe has reasonably blackened up over the past time. Black is one of the most pure, polished and a “go-to” color if you are in struggle of getting dressed up for your day. A black basic romper makes an amazing foundation for the killer accessorizes, like wide-brimmed hats and massive frippery. Here, I tried to make an all-black outfit less tedious by paying more attention to the details. The cross-choker I’m wearing is one of my favorite findings – it’s from the vintage surf store in Canary Islands (you have more of lookalike necklaces here and here). Back to the all black challenge, I love to mix up different textures when the outfit is monochrome. To that end, here are some tips on wearing black on black :
- to escape from too heavy look, add on some transparent material and/or dainty black lace. It will give your outfit the desired airy effect;
- wanna get an edgy downtown look? I personally love the all black look with the slice of rock’n’roll spirit : ripped jeans, zippered boots and perfecto leather jacket;
- to add a dose of cool to your look, try to put on some graphic tee like this Luisaviaroma t-shirt or Givenchy one.
That’s it for today! I’m eager to find out your styling tips to pulling off the all black outfit, so feel free to share it with me below.
