The World of men’s fashion has had its fair share in the exploitation of color this year. Now with the year fast closing and a new change in the fashion calender ahead of next year, style ideas start flowing at a repeat level. Dont get yourself confused, go for BLACK and go all the way! Don’t confuse this trend for a simple black shirt and trouser, this is the All Black Everything Vibe………. Its unique strength lies in making a mess of it, pile up different textures against different materials and then you have done it all with BLACK!
Black jeans, black cotton shirt, black leather jacket, black snakeskin belt,black lace or organza gloves, black shoes and a Black bag to finish……. Now you are all BLACK and ready to kill! The power of this trend is in the freedom of expression, black is a color that allows to to express yourself whatever the texture of fabric or choice of material you pair it with.
When Jay-Z said he might wear black for a year straight, I thought that was a fantastic idea but still while adopting this trend be sure to keep the rules in check. How do you rock the monochrome look without giving off the vibe that you have a shrine to Satan in your basement? Allow me to offer a few pointers:
- Don’t Be Afraid to Mix it Up: Your ensemble will come together a lot better if you try mixing textures rather than layering blacks that are of a similar feel. Avoid the faded black t-shirt with the equally overly washed black denim. Instead, try out waxed denim, jacquard or lace textured pants, or leather leggings and pair it with Jersey t-shirts, crochet tops, and silk blouses.
- Make It Ladylike: Remove the uniformity from the look by adding a classic quilted bag or a statement shoe. Look for styles with a sturdier heel that will offer more comfort while you stunt up and down Sheridan.
- Get Bejewled: Adding statement jewelry to an all black look not only increases femininity, but also adds a touch of glamour. Try jeweled studs, pearls, and other large, colorful accessories.
