New Ways to Wear Black

All black looks tend to get the short end of the stick. People claim that wearing all black is too morbid or that people look like they are going to a funeral. In reality, all black looks can be extremely fashionable and easy to wear no matter where you are.

However, we do admit that all black can get a bit boring – so you have to know how to spice it up a bit.

Black Lace

Black lace is one of the best trends to follow when you want to wear black but don’t want to look too hard. Adding a black lace bodysuit under your favorite black skirt will soften the look up just a bit, helping you to feel more comfortable and feminine, no matter what else you wear.


Black leather is never going to go out of style, no matter who you are or what you do. Investing in a black leather skirt or a black leather jacket will help you to stay in style.

So why are so many people so hesitant to wear them? It might seem strange, but leather gets a bit of a bad reputation in many circles. You feel like you might have too much of an edge or that you are going to seem too tough. That isn’t the case! As long as you don’t have spikes on your clothes, you will just seem in style.

Black Matte

Matte black is such a great look when put up against other black finishes. Without changing the color at all, you have a statement piece that you can invest in – try adding a great pair of matte black shoes or, if you really want to stand out, a matte black bag. Even better, this material tends to be a bit tougher so you don’t have to worry about scuffs.

Oil Slick

The shift in oil slick makes it a natural partner for an all black look. Why? It helps to add some color but still gives you that monochromatic look that so many people love.

You can add the oil slick pattern and colors in so many ways. We suggest sticking with something small like a belt or sunglasses to get the most impact out of it.

Whether you tend to drop food on your clothing, you have a few extra pounds from the holidays, or you just like all black, don’t be afraid to rock it.
