STYLE GURU STYLE: All Black Everything

STYLE GURU STYLE: All Black Everything

Black is classic. Black is eye-catching. Black never goes out of style. Let’s just make one thing clear: black is the new black. What I love most about black clothing is that it looks good on everyone, and it pairs well with any other color, especially black and the many different shades of it. Yes, I kid you not, there are many shades of black and no one can convince me otherwise. I think that’s what’s so great about it, it’s such a versatile color and it’s always in style. You can never go wrong with all black.

In my younger and unfashionable days, all-black clothing intimidated me. I always thought that people who pulled off the look exuded confidence and power, and let’s not forget, they looked great at the same time. I acknowledged that it was a good look on everyone else, but on me? No way. I didn’t have it in me to try to pull it off. I, in my bright-colored clothes, was not worthy or capable of perfectly putting together an all-black look. As you can see, the times have changed, and I eventually put my fears aside and tried the all black look on myself. I loved it. I never realized that even I could feel confident and powerful wearing all black. It might be crazy to think that an outfit could change your mood, make you feel beautiful, or give you a confidence boost, but that’s exactly what it did for me. I felt amazing in all black, and it has become a go-to for a majority of my style choices.

For this look, I threw together a simple all-black look. The off-the-shoulder top has tiny gold accents on the bottom, which add a little detail and pop of color. The off-the-shoulder top also pairs well with accessories, such as a self-tie choker. To complete this look, I wore black jeans and black boots, because it’s still a bit chilly outside, and comfort and warmth are just as essential as looking good. To recreate this look, or anything similar to it, I’d recommend wearing anything in the color black that makes you feel confident. There’s no better feeling than one that comes from being confident in what you’re wearing. Here’s to all-black outfits, may they never go out of style.
