Greetings from Heidelberg! As the start of the semester is right around the corner here at Heidelberg University College Fashionistas/o’s are slowly trickling back to Heidelberg and can be spotted walking down the Hauptrasses or out of the Mensa (which is German for dinning hall).  I spotted this Fashionista as she was walking out of the Mensa after lunch.  I was intrigued with the way she wore black on black.

After spending an entire summer in New York City where everyone seems to always be wearing black, I have become obsessed with the color or might I say lack there of. I have come to realize that no matter what time of year or season it is black is always in style. Black has always been associated with elegance, seductiveness, and mysteriousness.  It is also a color unlike most others that can suit a range of different ages.  It is a color that can be worn together like this Fashionista did or it can be paired with multiple colors. 

To find your inner dark side I recommend making your staple or basic pieces black since the color is so versatile. These David Lerner cigarette leggings are a great way to incorporate more black into your fall and winter wardrobe.  Also a classic black blouse like this Vince one is also a great black basic that is bound to never go out of style.  

As Coco Chanel always said “Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all…”
