ALL IN THE DETAILS: On Mondays We Wear Black

Mean Girls taught us that on Wednesdays we wear pink, but some days you wake up and can only put on all-black. Monochromatic outfits and staples have been a huge trend all year and there seems to be no end in sight.

This Fashionisto went out in downtown for a bit of shopping in his own version of an all-black outfit. His look is simple with just a black T-shirt, black jeans and black combat boots. A big statement necklace in silver adds a unique detail to this black ensemble. And the ankle weights can’t go without being mentioned: fashion and function all in one. Like this Fashionisto said, “Why not kill two birds with one stone and work out while you shop?”

All-black outfits aren’t just fashionable, but can help us out on those days when it feels like  there’s nothing to wear. On those days when we open our closets to a sea full of repeated outfits, black on black is always tried and true. Whether it’s your favorite LBD or a black sweater worn with a great pair of high-waisted black jeans, having an all-black outfit is just as important as wearing pink on Wednesdays with The Plastics.

How To: Not sure how to jazz up your own favorite all-black outfit? Add a silver statement necklace like this one to the mix to add a unique break in your all-black apparel. You can also keep your outfit interesting by experimenting with texture, fabric and silhouette, like with this smock jacket. Pairing this jacket with a simple black dress can keep you warm on those cool summer nights.
