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
Both J.Lo and Khloe Kardahian uplifted noir ensembles with spiked Christian Louboutin pumps for outings and appearances.
More adventurous? Pluck a pair of vertiginous oeuvre d’arts à la June Ambrose:
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.
