“Wearing black is a lifestyle.”
I swear my wardrobe has every color in the rainbow- except yellow or orange (they make me look like I have jaundice)! However, the only items I find myself wearing are the neutral pieces, especially the black ones. I greatly annoy family and friends when shopping because my catch phrase is:
“I love it. If it was black…..”
My blogging bestie Shell, from A Courageous Beauty, got to listen to that saying a million times while we traipse around Target last weekend! There is just something go to about my dark pieces. They always feel fresh and they always work together- especially when paired with another neutral, like denim. I thought I’d share today the top 3 ways to update the black pieces in your wardrobe and shake up your neutral look!
1: Look to the modern neutrals.
Black, white, gray, khaki. You grew up knowing these as neutral tones. However, for a modern feel look to denim, snakeskin, and olive as neutrals too!
Changing your definition of neutral will push your style to the next level.
2: Texture is key.
The best way to get away with all black everything is to add multiple textures to keep the look from falling flat!
Think lace, leather, denim (both a colour and texture), faux fur, silk.
3: Wear what you truly love.
I could give you all the tips and suggestions in the world! If you don’t absolutely love and feel confident in the piece though, no amount of “advice” will change that.
If you don’t absolutely love and feel confident in the piece though, no amount of “advice” will change that.
If black isn’t your thing, apply #1 and #2 to anything you wear! They are tips that will make your style more refined and give it that je na sais quoi that we all are looking for!
Do you have a go to color? I’d love to hear why it’s your go to! BTW I FINALLY found an amazinggggg dupe of my favorite Rebecca Minkoff tote that is always on my page. Yay! Enjoy your short week babes.
