All-Black Everything: Edgy & Chic

June 27, 2017

Shop This Look Below! 

 

 

Every season, we read and hear clichés about the latest uber-trendy color being the "new black." The ever-changing saying goes something like, "Red is the new black." I have to say, I enthusiastically disagree with these axioms because, frankly, nothing could replace black. There can't be a new black. Black clothing reins supreme in all its chic and timeless splendor. 

 

In fact -- while I'm on my soapbox -- dressing in head-to-toe black is one of my favorite looks. On a regular basis, I have to actively concentrate on adding color to my wardrobe simply for variety's sake. All-black-everything is a coat of armor...a power suit. Not only does it flatter any complexion on planet Earth, the neutral is slimming, sexy and fashion-forward. Could red do all that? I think not. Plus, we can style it any way we like: preppy, sophisticated, trendy, edgy. etc. 

 

For this look, I went for a chic and edgy vibe. This Self Portrait lace and organza top is the outfit's statement-maker with its ruffles, cold shoulders and see-through knitting (I have a lace bralette underneath). This faux leather skirt is one I've had for years because its classic shape stands the test of time, and its side zippers add cool, interest-grabbing detail. Overall, the outfit has an intrinsic simplicity elevated by each garment's detail and embellishment. Because of those adornments, I went with simple black Christian Louboutin pumps and an oversized, woven clutch. 

 

Whether it's classic-chic or trendy-chic, all-things-noir-fashion will remain an irreplaceable go-to by not only myself but fashion addicts everywhere. It's simply too desirable and advantageous. We'll forever gravitate toward it, admire it and reap its benefits. 

 

Cheers!
