I love monochromatic looks, especially when they consist of the color black. There is something about wearing an all black look that is sophisticated, chic, a little edgy, and utterly slimming. However, if you're not careful, draping yourself in head to toe black can look a little drab (we don't want to look like we just stepped out of a funeral home), so today I'm sharing some tips on how to pull of the look while still looking stylish.
1. Add texture. Mixing different fabrics and materials together will add contrast to your look, which will break up the black and make it more interesting. Pair a silk blouse with a fur vest, or a lace top with denim, as I did here. I finished my look with a faux leather drape jacket giving it even more texture.
2. Choose pieces that have fun details. Studs, zippers, and buttons, all add an interesting touch to an all black look. I love how the zipper detail on my jeans break up the monochromatic color, while the studs on my heels add a fun touch.
3. Add a pop of color. You can never go wrong by wearing a colorful bag or accessory with an all black look. I love how a red bag pops against the black, and my ultimate accessory is a bright lip.
