. Black on black
Black is the new black. This season I have this (though rather trite) fashion to cry and made my personal motto, I (re) discovered how easy it is to you and stylishly dressed in black clothes. A pair of black basic items, a few black accessories and combine it to your hearts content. With so many options! Here are 10 tips for a successful, fashionable (almost) ‘total black’ winter look.
Tip 1. Invest in some basic items, so you can easily achieve a total black look. Think of a black winter coat (even in the cheaper stores depend awfully nice black modelletjes at reasonable prices). Continue for a nice black pants or skirt with a fashionable cut (I personally love the latest modelletjes high waist).
Tip 2. Let yourself be distracted by shopping at the beautiful colors, but choose your basic accessories this winter: black. Black stockings, black (long) gloves, black scarf, a black cap.
Tip 3. Get creative with new (black) and clothing (black) items from previous seasons.
Tip 4. Get your black dresses (who’s no black dress?) Appear. Wear dresses that you previously only for evening or special occasions seemed appropriate, during the day, with sports, woolen accessories.
Tip 5. Black is slim (everybody knows), but even if you choose to continue the black shapes and materials of interest. I discovered that even the one pantyhose stocking the other is not. Elastic stockings give legs a slim and ‘tight’ appearance, thin, woolen stockings (very nice) not have this effect. It’s just the effect you want. So make conscious choices and examine the results critically.
Tip 6. Go for super elegant and feminine forms (almost to the truttige off) for a fashionable look. Think this season with knee-length skirts instead of miniskirts, pants with flared legs instead of the usual slimfit model, transparent blouses with bows instead of a thick, black wool sweater, half long coat with belt instead of a jacket.
Tip 7. Bring your structure and variation in total black outfit by combining different materials. Combine gloss to matte, and play with a transparent background (so it can be very nice to have a transparent black sweater with an opaque black camisole to combine very chic and contemporary is the combination of a classic black pants with a black silk – shiny! – Blouse) . Black leather is also quite fashionable. There are also several variations of ‘black’. Combine them together to add depth and ‘movement’ in your look to make.
Tip 8. Make a total black outfit with a wide black belt in her hair. Delicious fussy, but oh so chic! (Headbands are totally trendy again)
Tip 9. Last year I swore when combined with black-gray, but this year it seems now often seen color combination rather banal. Enter your total black outfit an extra kick by mixing the black jerseys with a single dark blue (almost black) item. Super Chic! Very trendy, the combination of a total black outfit with a single accessory color.
Tip 10. Go sparingly with jewels / jewelery around. Put the emphasis on up-to-date fashionable accessories like a bag or a pair of shoes. Complete all on with a stylish pair of earrings or a necklace striking (note: either / or, not both / and!). Keep all stylish and apparently simple (the difference in structures and materials is anything but your outfit!). Make it as I once read, a habit of before you leave your house, a piece of jewelry or accessory to do. Can never be too much!
