Style Advice of the Week

What is white, black and stylish all over? This Fashionista, of course! Black is a color that looks good on everyone and never goes out of season. Although some don’t like how it is dark and grungy, many Fashionistas and Fashionistos prefer wearing black over any other color.

What I really like about this Fashionista’s look is the way she uses the color black in her outfit. The textures of her black shirt and black leather jacket against each other give each piece an individualized look. This Fashionista is wearing a cropped fishnet black sweater from Topshop with a basic tank top from Forever 21 underneath. For added color, a Fashionista reading could replace the black tank top with a fuchsia tank top if she feels too much black is a bad thing.

This Fashionista adds a black motorcycle jacket from Madewell to her look. If you’re looking for something to wear that’s lighter than a jacket, try this long blazer for the same effect. Again, if a Fashionista wants the opportunity to add color into her outfit this would be the perfect item to use. The color in the long blazer against an all black ensemble is both eye-catching and super chic.

Mixing blacks and whites in an all black outfit is a great way to avoid looking dark. This Fashionista utilizes her pants to draw attention with its Aztec pattern. Depending on how long your shirt is will give you the option of wearing leggings or trousers. I love these black and white polka-dot leggings from ModCloth.This Fashionista chose to stay comfortable with platform black shoes. The silver buckle on the all black shoe adds edginess to her look.

Don’t be afraid to mix colors into an all black outfit to make one piece stand out more than another. Black is a fashionable color, and many find it easier to wear black more than another color.
