Black is the number one staple color in any individual’s wardrobe. Black is and always will be the go-to color of the day, month, decade and century! If you ever question what color you should wear, black is the answer. Black is appropriate in every situation, season and occasion. In this winter season a great black fabric to look for is wool. Wools are always a deeper black than cottons because wool holds dye better and over time wool doesn't fade like cotton does. However, blacks can also be difficult to match. A great motto to live by when wearing black is to always mix and match fabrics and textures. For example, wearing a heavily textured sweater and pairing it with a pair of plain smooth pants looks dashing for the winter season. Or you can even switch the look up by wearing textured bottoms and a plain top. Try pairing corduroy trousers with a button up shirt, and complete the look by wearing a tailored blazer on top.
Today, this Fashionisto is wearing a black leather Steve Madden jacket, a black Polo Ralph Lauren sweater and some black chino pants from PacSun. To top off this all-black ensemble, a pair of black on black Chuck Taylor tennis shoes. His look is debonair and refined, but still gives off a fun and hip feel. He has mastered the mixing and matching of fabrics through his mix of textured leather and plain smooth chino pants.
So Fashionistos, black is always the answer. No matter the situation or occasion the color black is always appropriate. The black tip for the day is to always remember to mix and match textures and fabrics when wearing an all-black ensemble. It will make you look cool and suave, all at the same time!
