Orange is the new black? I don’t think so… Black will never go out of style!
Black is the one color that we can always depend on to be on trend and in style. The one color you can always rely on to make you feel fabulous! It’s the one color that looks good on any age and any shape!
This is especially true for us New Yorkers who have been embracing this color basically since birth. We drink our coffee black, shop on black Friday and especially love to dress ourselves in black. It is a color that is often associated with death and mourning, but I think black has been given a bad rep! It is truly an iconic and classic color that can look classy, edgy, and fashion-forward all at the same time. Wearing all black can make you feel powerful and rich, or cute and funky. It has the power to make you feel chic when you are in a fashion rut. I want to help you shop smarter for black! No more buying black just to cover up and hide from the world. When wearing black, you should be standing out from the crowd, not blending in!
One of the best ways to wear black is with an LBD, aka a little black dress. Karl Lagerfeld offered some of the best advice to women when he said that “One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress.” An LBD is something that should be in every woman’s closet no matter her age, size or style. It should be a dress that can work for any occasion, and something you put on when you just want to feel beautiful. A great example would be this Alberta Ferretti black cocktail strapless dress. The shiny detailing fabric really give this dress some sex appeal without making you feel uncomfortable. You will certainly stand out from a sea of boring when you step out in this gorgeous dress!
Another option for you to consider adding to your wardrobe would be this Alexander Mcqueen Black dress. The 3/4 longer sleeves make it perfect for cooler weather, and the V-neck really elongates the neck. The best thing about this dress is its versatility. This dress could be worn to a cocktail party with a stunning pair of stilettos and diamond earrings. However, it could also be worn to an important business meeting with a blazer and black pumps. This type of dress is going to make you feel confident, strong, and sexy no matter how you wear it. I guarantee that you’ll end up wearing it over and over again without ever getting bored of it.
I think that the color black is truly magical and can change your attitude about anything. If you are having a rough day, going out wearing your LBD will make you feel lively and happy. If you are nervous about a job interview, wearing your black power suit will give you confidence and strength. If you just want to feel better about the way you look, throw on a pair of Valentino black suede heels, and I guarantee you’ll be strutting down your own personal catwalk.
No matter how much I love bright colors and patterns, I will still always be drawn to the color black. It is such a simple, yet breathtaking color and it has a big impact on anyone wearing it. It goes with almost everything you already own, and adds its own flair to your outfits.
So why not shop black?? Save the bright colors for another day and start filling your closet with this amazing, forever-Stable color.
