The colour black is always in vogue, regardless of the fashion season or where you are in the world. Trends may come and go, but black is always in style, or so it seems. The colour is constantly in the shops, and on the catwalk, all year. It is a prominent colour in the wardrobe of most fashion conscious men and women. Many fashion bloggers, fashion designers and style icons like Victoria Beckham, Rachel Zoe, and Audrey Hepburn, are usually seen rocking all black outfits, and who would blame them, black is a very powerful colour.
Dressing in all black is often perceived as a strong, stylish, fashion statement. It is classic and timeless, and the true style queens now how to work it. It takes confidence to wear all black and look good. There is a thin line between wearing all black, and looking stylish, and wearing all black, and looking grumpy.
I love anything black. Monochrome pieces and accessories are also my favourites. I find them versatile, super flattering, and easy to style. I love the fact that I can wear the same classic black dress to the office, to a restaurant and to an event. I attended a bloggers event with Propellernet and Premier Inn last year, and I remember thinking long and hard of what pieces to wear for the 2 day event. I wanted to dress formally, but I didn’t want to stand out too much. It was my first bloggers event and all, so I was going in there blind, not sure what to expect. I just obeyed the fashion golden rule – ‘If in Doubt, Wear Black’, and it worked. I settled on a black fitted Next dress for the first day, and a black Next top and skirt for the second day (Yes, I love Next), and I looked stylish and chic, but not over the top, which was the look I was going for.
Most of my pieces and accessories are in black. I only started adding some colour to my wardrobe some years ago, there was a time I had only monochrome clothing and accessories, but a bit of colour is required every now and again. Whenever I have an event to attend, and I can’t think of what to wear, I just throw on a black outfit, and it is yet to fail me. If in doubt, just wear black.
Do you agree? Is black a prominent colour in your wardrobe? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.
