STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Jet, Onyx, Raven, Slate And Black

January 22nd, 2015 at 2:00am

’90s grunge is back, but this time I think it’s here to stay. What is not to love about an all-black outfit and a dark lipstick? Neon was popular a little too long for my own liking, and then we had the trend of pastels and faded floral prints. What I’ve noticed about this trend is that it can be worn for anything such as job interviews, date nights and every other day of the week. This monochromatic look is not just a popular trend but the focus of a lot of Fashionistas/os’ whole styles.

Like this Fashionista, my wardrobe is filled to the brim with black clothes and shoes. A great thing about wearing all-black is that you can appreciate that you’re wearing different types of textiles. In this look, there’s her quilted jacket, thick knit pants, a ribbed sweater and suede, heeled booties. Everyone can rock an all-black look, plus it gives you so many options for styling the rest of the look with your own personal touch. This Fashionista styled herself with a ’90s era deep taupe lipstick, a tight bun and delicate gold necklaces. The necklaces are personalized with a monogram, her first initial and the smallest Illinois you’ve ever seen. Her Burberry jacket shows the beautiful check-print lining that is hard not to love.

The ’90s grunge trend doesn’t only include black, so ease in with shades of dark green, navy and, of course, gray. One color can be just as versatile as the whole rainbow so it’s hard to make black look boring. It’s strong, powerful and gives me confidence like a supermodel. ’90s grunge will eventually retire to hang out with neon and floral, but all-black will never leave the wardrobes of classic and chic Fashionistas.
