STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: The Absence of Color

As Coco Chanel once said, “Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” In my opinion, I could not agree more. I have always been drawn to all-black-everything ensembles—the ultimate lazy-girl hack to dressing. The greatest thing about wearing all black is that nothing can ever mismatch, and you always look extremely chic. All-black looks are anything but basic and will always be versatile and timeless.

This Fashionista may be sticking to one very reliable color family, but she still manages to give her look depth and style by adding black and gold accessories. Her simple, black satchel complements the monochromatic style in an elegant way. She even manages to add a long sweater to the look without taking away from the all-black-everything trend. Her bold, red lipstick is the finishing touch to her ensemble.

Black is like a true friend that will always be there for you, whether it’s going to class or grabbing lunch with a friend. It is flattering, captivating and classic. It can always be your go-to outfit when your closet is giving you a hard time in the morning. My favorite part about this look is that it compliments everyone regardless of their body’s shape or size. This look is always your safest bet!
