Winter or summer, black is a go-to colour. There isn’t a person I know who doesn’t have black in their wardrobe. 

Black is practical and much like white it goes with everything. Unlike white it doesn’t show up every spec of dirt though - making it low maintenance. 
Wearing black head to toe is cool but challenging. 

Unless you’re going for that gothic or going to a to a funeral look there are a few rules you to know.

Here are a few tips on how to wear all black with style:

Combine different textures to create interest. Add wool or leather if you’re wearing cotton and denim - or you could mix suede and silk. Layering sheer fabrics creates a whimsical look.

Wearing all black is like working on a black canvas (similarly to wearing all white) which makes it the ideal outfit to add a pop of colour to. A colourful printed neckerchief or something as simple as a solid coloured bag.

No matter what you’re wearing, accessories are an important part of any outfit - especially so when wearing all black! Think statement heels or funky sneakers. Even something as simple as a pair of playful sox. Go crazy with a statement neck-piece or interesting earrings.

Work metallics into your outfit. A skinny gold belt or a pair of fashionable metallic boots adds a touch of glam.
