I love a killer all-black look. Especially for the holidays. All black is slimming, I can drink red wine without fear, and it’s easy to find shoes to match. Holla.
But the downside is…boredom. Especially during this shiny, glittery time of year, all-black outfits are often second-best. Like my top choice was too cold/too complicated/needed a different bra…okfine. Black pants it is. However, there are a few ways to glam your black and make it a prime choice for holiday parties. Mixing textures (like lace, velvet, faux-fur or shine, for example) is one option…but my current fav is to make an all-black outfit modern with dramatic silhouettes.
Namely, high-rise flares and an show-stopping top.
Add a glitzy bag, a little bling, and voila! (And don’t forget the right bra.)
top – Flynn Skye Leah Top (size xs for reference)
shoes – last year’s Vince Camuto – here’s similar
bag – vintage, but we rounded up a bunch of similar pieces in the Evening bag shop
