We all have days when we just can’t get our fashion groove on. Standing in front of your closet you peruse your options. As you push back each hanger you mumble to yourself, “nope, nope, nope”. Face it, you’re not in the mood for anything other then head-to-toe black. But walking out of the house in nothing but black can set the stage for a rather dull and depressing day. On those days where the color black is the only color you can wrap your head around think about jazzing-up your outfit with one of these 6 styling tips.
~Brighten it up with colorful accessories. Think red, yellow, green or snakeskin shoes. And don’t think you have to match your shoes to your handbag. If you are wearing head-to-toe black you can go a little overboard with the color of you accessories.
~Mix your metals. Wearing gold and silver together works elegantly with an all-black outfit. If you’ve got a large watch wear that with your silver and gold bangles.
~Add texture. The next time you are in the shopping mood for a new black top find one with texture. The added texture will give your outfit a little more depth.
~Add a print. Parisians know how to wear scarves! And they do it boldly. Choose a large printed and colorful scarf. If styling a big scarf seems daunting just fold it into a triangle and drape over your shoulders.
~Embrace a bit of quirkiness. You know that huge necklace or pin you have a hard time wearing. Well, an all-black canvas is the best way to show off the vintage necklace you picked up at the flea market or just load up on the bracelets.
~Or just get a puppy. A puppy is sure to make you smile and grab attention as well.
