Black on Black


Black is truly one of the more versatile colors in the wardrobe palette. The wonderful thing about black is that depending on how you style (or understyle) a look, you can make a statement or opt for an understated look. When I think of black on black ensembles, the words bold, sleek, sophisticated, strong, edgy, sexy, elegant and glamourous come to mind. What words come to mind when you think of black?

Classic chic. I can't wait for fall. This heat is not conducive to my new wardrobe picks.

i agree that black is the most versatile colour, and its timeless, and i think the quality of material is very important in black...

So underrated, so chic, so classy! I especially love it when there's a contrast in structure or texture like in these photos. Love it!

Fernanda Lucila said...

These photos are beautiful!
I'm not much of a black person, though. Lately I've noticed that I'm seriously lacking a bunch of black staple pieces in my closet ... some shopping must take place to solve this problem :P

When I think of black, I think sexy, seductive, dark, mysterious, sleek amongst other things. Much like you said, it depends on how it is styled.
