Traditionally, the color black can signify danger, darkness or secrecy. When worn from head-to-toe, black can take on a new meaning. It can evoke a feeling of chic, timeless style or suggest a rebellion from the norm. Black can give an impression of confidence, defiance and an effortless kind of cool. No matter what the Fashionisto is trying to express, an all-black outfit makes a bold statement using a classic color that never goes out of style.
As the temperature starts to drop here in Savannah, students are noticeably incorporating darker colors into their wardrobes. To some the all-black aesthetic may seem tired and cliché but this monochromatic look can be updated through modern silhouettes and accessories. This Fashionisto wears a simple cotton tank top, black denim jeans and a pair of high-top sneakers. Adding a pair of black jeans to your wardrobe will complement the darker hues of fall and act as a neutral basic for many different outfits. The minimalist approach to this outfit keeps the look updated and casual. The silver watch is the only accessory of the outfit and its orange face stands out as an unexpected pulse of color.
Hint: Taking this look from casual day attire to a look better suited for a night out can be achieved through a couple of easy steps. Swap the tank top for a plain V-neck shirt and finish the look by adding a black blazer or leather jacket. Don’t be afraid to experiment with interesting fabrics and textures that will enhance the otherwise plain, monochromatic look.
