If you are like me, black will always be the “new black.” For many decades in the fashion world the use of black was associated with specific rituals or personalities. When someone wore black consequently it meant they were mourning for someone’s death. Many times the color black was also affiliated with goth trends, which at times in history was frowned upon. It wasn’t until mid ’20s, that Gabrielle Chanel created the iconic “Little Black Dress.” In 1926, Vogue magazine stated that it was, “a style whose daring simplicity revolutionizes fashion. American Vogue hails the innovate design as an instant classic…” and they were not kidding! Ever since then the color black now symbolizes class and elegance. Nowadays wearing the color black is not the issue, but what to pair it with might be.

This Fashionista mastered the art of how to make black look classic but also chic. Her black and white slim fit jumpsuit is an item that can be dressed up and down. Of course, the white lace gives it a sense of sensuality all while still maintaining elegance. She paired this look, with minimal jewelry. She mentioned that most of the details in her outfit were on the upper part of her jumpsuit, therefore she did not want to overdo it with a lot of accessories. I would have to agree with her.

Keeping it simple, this Fashionista added some spark, with a classic mini rhinestone choker necklace, which goes perfect with the white lace. Moreover, she decided to add some silver and rose gold to her look with a Kenneth Cole watch and bracelet. She finalized this look with some timeless yet elegant Gianni Bini nude ankle strap pumps. Every detail in her outfit was flawlessly in sync, from the use of black to the minimal accessories. We can thank Gabrielle Chanel for breaking the barriers of fashion and allow us all to associate black with elegance!

How To: Ladies, this look is perfect for any occasion, I encourage you all to try it out! You can even dress it up with a blazer for a business attire look, or if you rather dress it down try it with some pointed toe flats!
