5 Fun Ways to Wear All Black in the Winter
By Claire

If you’re a New Yorker, you know all black everything is the city dweller’s signature style!
Black on Black is always chic, yes, but it can be boring! By playing with textures and statement accessories, you can inject a bit of fun into the brooding tone.
Take a quick look at how a few of our favorite celebs and personal style bloggers added a funky twist to ebony hues.

1. Play with textures

If you take any tip away from this post, it should be this one. Rocking various textures is an easy way to add interest to your outfit. Slip a faux fur coat over a wool dress and suede knee high boots. Velvet, jersey, lace…the sky’s the limit!
2. Try a statement shoe

3. Add a bright lip

Sure your outfit can be dull, but that doesn’t mean your makeup has to be! Add a bit of brightness with a pop of a rouge, berry, or pink lipstick.

4. Patterned Hosiery
Wearing a skirt? Make a statement in polka dotted or lacy tights that will keep the cold out while adding a dash of chic.

5. Layer to the Limit
Along with rocking different textures, of course layer and layer for loads of warmth. Perch a coat over your shoulders, or wear a furry vest over a leather jacket.

  1. I love all black because it is slimming and gives you an air of magic and power. I recently did a blog post wearing all black by playing with textures and then adding color by rocking some burgundy(ish) tights. I also did full all black with a wide brim hat. I love this post and this brings me a ton more ideas!

    Im from NYC.. all black has always been my thing..black looks good on everybody and is effortless to pull off… but was that Miss Tina Knowles that was pictured under Rihanna in the ” 3.Add a Bright Lip” section? SNATCHED !!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I love this post because there are so many wrong ways to wear all black (the seventh photo is definitely borderline disaster)but every outfit works as a really good inspiration.

    Mixing textures is what makes any style great, but with all black it adds an element of chic that can’t be over looked. For spring/summer it seems the “it” color to pair up will be all white. That is what I’m reeeeally looking forward to. ;)

    Unfortunately I have suffered 2 deaths in my family in the past 4 months and out of tradition and respect, I have to wear all black for a period of time. I really appreciate this post allowing me to mourn respectfully and fashionably.
