Back to Black: 10 Ways to Wear Black


Yes, black will always be chic. Black will always be in. It is always a good idea to have black items in your closet. Having too much black may get you thinking that there’s not too many ways to style this color (lack of color? I can never remember), but don’t worry: I’ve got 10 ways to wear black right here.

1) Accessorize

Add a simple pair of cuffs or go dripping with jewels. However you want to wear it is up to you: use color, wear some statement jewelry, the possibilities are endless. With a simple black outfit, you can pile on whatever you please and never worry about over-accessorizing.

2) Leather Jacket

Every girl needs a leather jacket. It’s one of those staple items that always looks cool and never goes out of style. Whether you want to go with a simple biker jacket or jazz it up with studs and rhinestones is all up to you.

3) Layered

Black on black on black. The key to layering with black clothes is the same as any other kind of layering, just make sure all your layers are of that one, oh-so-stylish, monochromatic hue.

4) Suited Up

I love a good suit. It’s edgy and classy all at once: especially so if all you’re wearing is black. Go for a pin-striped look or a more silky feel. Either way, you’ll be looking super slick and chic.

5) Retro

Who says you can’t have a throwback day and still rock it in all black? Don a 50’s style dress or go for 70’s boho flair: just make sure it’s all in black.

6) Top to Bottom

This is one of the easiest ways to wear all black–and it looks good on everyone. All you need is three items: black shirt, black pants, and black shoes. BAM! You’ve got this look down.

7) Classy

Add a string of pearls or a pop of red lips to a classy black look and people will be raving about your outfit all day long.

8) Lace

I’m rather fond of lacy looks: especially in black. Go for a high-fashion ensemble, or something a little simpler and more comfortable. Either way, the lace look is always fun and flirtatious.

9) Goth

One of the more classic black looks. Similar to the layering look, the key is just to pile on a lot of black: whether it’s with a heavy jacket or a sheer top and tights, all black is the key. Don’t forget to top it off with a chic hat and put on your darkest shade of lipstick.

10) LBD

And we finish up with the most classic and simplest of black looks. Another staple item, every girl should have a little black dress in her closet (I happen to have 5). You can dress them up heels and fabulous earrings or dress them down with a pair of worn out Chucks. The LBD is a life-saver.

What are your favorite all black looks?
