If in Doubt, Wear Black.

If in Doubt, Wear Black.

All Black OOTD

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.

Thanks for reading. Thank God its Friday.

Have a great weekend x

  1. I have my staples of black in my wardrobe which we all need and for those if in doubt times. I am able to wear colour as my style is modern quirky and boho. Not everyone would look right in what I wear. I love the statement of mixing colours, though they must look right together. Not but colour for the sake of it. That’s why I am a big fan of Joe Browns clothing

  2. I very rarely wear head to toe black actually but it does look classy and stylish. I really like your poncho actually, but I couldn’t see where it was from?

  3. I totally agree with you. Black is really my favourite colour. It is a cool colour and suites all occasions. Beautiful.

  4. I loved Kendall’s all black outfit and I actually have an event in three weeks time whose theme is black chic! This will definitely be a challenge for me as my style is normally colourful!

  5. Hahahah I do this too! I live by the motto ‘I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour’. I love a full black outfit so chic.

Speak your heart, don't bite your tongue!
