The Art of Black

This year, I want to learn the art of pulling off an all-black(ish) outfit like that. Black is overused, abused and sometimes worked so totally wrong that I generally tend to just steer clear of it. In fact, I do not own many items in Black. However, I do think that it's a nice colour to dress in, and I want to learn more about how to do it properly. Like the example below.

Below are a few tips and guidelines (not actual rules. There are no rules in Fashion...methinks, anyway) I would keep in mind when going for a predominantly Black outfit:

- Layer. This will help add different dimensions to your outfit and automatically making it more interesting 
and visually dynamic.
- Add texture. Like a lace shell top, a knitted item, different kinds of fabric and so on.
- Accessorize. Even studded clothing counts. Accessories will make your outfit less dull and more oomph.
- Do add spots of colour. Like a coloured stone ring, a subtle pattern (like the one on the bag in the picture above), Lipsticks and Nail Laquers. 

Remember, being creative is the key.
