Let’s take a second to thank whoever brought it back to black. I constantly stress how much I am utterly obsessed with black and you’re possibly wondering why? I’ll tell you why… because it signifies sophistication, elegance and a level of respect that is demanded (and easily received) with its presence. It’s simplicity with a built in flare for attention. It also looks extremely FABULOUS and EDGY with effortless execution.
I have suggested all summer long to explore prints, patterns, colors and combinations that seem out of the ordinary. With the summer coming to an end and the weather not at its peak of heat, I have noticed a shift of fits on campus. Students are adjusting and winding down with the season. I am all about finding your own fashion niche, Fashionistos, but seeing this Fashionisto blacked out was honestly the highlight of my week. I saw myself, if I was a 6-foot-6 basketball player.
Yes, because he wore my favorite color from head to toe, but also because I couldn’t help but think of all of Hollywood. Color-blocking in all black is beyond trendy these days, it’s pretty much the signified look right now.
This Fashionisto has paired a nice black skinny jean with a black lightweight long sleeve henley top. It is imperative to get the size right, Fashionistos! This fit is perfect, fashionably flattering and if it wasn’t edgy enough before, he combined a pair of Ray-Ban shades for the confusion.
Hint: Black is a power color. Love it. Embrace it. Black is the old and the new black. With a clean cut surface of a blackout, don’t feel inclined to keep it all in the family. Venture out to the colors and patterns that are still summer oriented because it isn’t over just quite. Color-block with neon or pastel clothing or wear a pop color shoe, hat or accessory.
