On wednesdays we wear black | fashion


When it comes to all black outfits, I'm usually guilty. Two shelves of my wardrobe are dedicated entirely to black shoes and boots and not many pieces in my wardrobe veer too far from that.

Black outfits hand themselves to such a timeless look (i.e. the infamous LBD), but lets be honest, its also really easy to match black with black. But to avoid looking like Wednesday Addams, here's my ways of adding colour to an all black outfit.

#1 Add a patterned scarf
This one is simple - add a patterned scarf and you'll be adding a few colours to your outfit. Or add a stole if you want to freshen your outfit up for AW15 and keep warm too!


#2 Add a lip colour
Adding a lip colour helps bring a plain outfit together and is a great hack to make you look like you've made a lot more of an effort than you really have. My favourite lip colours to wear when I'm in all black are a classic red such as Clinique's matte crimson or Kiko's 914 (dupe of MAC's rebel)

#3 Swap in some monochrome
Change up your outfit by swapping in tones of grey and white without the worry of whether it matches or not

#4 Wear a coloured bag
Here's some of my favourites
   


#5 Play with different textures 
Switching up the textures can make a monotone outfit look really chic. Try pairing a suade biker jacket with leather pants to give your outfit an edge.

  1. I would like to see your wardrobe, haha. My wardrobe is pretty choke full of black, too, and my relatives who are incredibly superstitious give me a lot of beef for that, but c'mon, who doesn't love black? I love wearing a bold lip colour (red, anyone?) and swapping in greys and whites to add in variety. But then again, what's so bad about looking like Wednesday Addams?

    Haha, have a lovely day, Lizzy!

  3. I am guilty of having too many black clothing. I swear, my closet is full of black, navy, white and grey. I usually style it with a grey detail and bright accessory like earrings or scarf :)
