Are you a fashion lover, sis? Then you've noticed the black and white trend all over. Besides the fact that black is slimming it's also super sleek and professional. Monochrome styling makes my heart smile in general. But... color is sorta my thing. What's a girl to do? Keep reading to learn how to wear all black with a colorful personality.
Add pops of color
Wearing all black gives you the freedom to pretty much add any pop of color to your look. Hot pink is my signature, so I decided to go with that. Cobalt blue and orange are two bold colors that look great with black, too. Feel free to add a pop of color with any of these items:
- Eye shadow
Contrasting fabric options
Don't be afraid to mix and match fabrics with your all black outfit. For example, I paired denim, cotton and leather in this look. I wouldn't look as chic in an all black denim pair of jeans, black chambray top and black denim jacket. Be careful with black denim since it tends to fade. Sis, be very intentional about rocking your black jeans with your black satin top and leather slides. Contraction fabric options go a long way.
I'm a sucker for white converse. This outfit would have looked just as cute, if not more cute with a pair of hot pink pumps. If you're going basic with your outfit then spice things up with a fun shoe. If you're in a sporty mood then downplay things with a classic sneaker. You have a few options when it comes to pops of color and shoes:
- Bold pop of color accessories paired with neutral shoes
- Pop of color = your shoes
- Neutral pops of color with bold shoes
- White accessories with printed shoes
- Prints AKA pop of color accessories with paired with black shoes.
