Fashion trends are continually coming and going. Trying to keep up with all of the different ideas can be exhausting. Every fashion-minded person has those moments when they look at a full closet and have nothing to wear. That is the time to return to the basics. Time to get back to black.

One can find this classic color in everything from yoga pants to evening wear. There are so many reasons to keep coming back to this color. Matching is never a worry, and it gives the wearer an air of sophistication that is often desired on college campuses. Black makes the body look great which is a great confidence booster. Black is chic and never out of style. This color is a go-to for Fashionistas/os everywhere.

In this last week, students have returned to campus and begun classes. The energy is high from winter break, so dressing for class is not the chore it can become when midterms roll around. Classic black is must for any time of the semester, especially when going for a sophisticated look that requires minimum effort but gives maximum results.

This Fashionista kept things simple with a fun graphic on a black maxi dress paired with ankle boots. The slit in the dress makes the length flirty and fun. To add some shine, she incorporated her glasses. It’s simple but eye catching, especially when combined with the confidence that says, “I know I look good.” Without a doubt, black is a staple color in any Fashionista’s wardrobe.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Wear black, stay gold and shine.”
