Last week we touted the fun and playful nature of brighter tones, but that wasn’t to mean that we don’t love us some black! In case you’ve been living under a rock and didn’t attend or hear about Alexander Wang’s recent collaboration with H&M (head on over to e-bay to find what you missed at an extreme markup) his collection was all about black on black. Minimalistic and classic, all black everything is a trend that will never die out.
Black on black looks add visual interest while keeping things simple. Fabric piecing and mixing with sheers, laces, leathers, and suedes looks so sharp in this versatile colour. Creating a head-to-toe look in black is easy and chic, and pulls your ensemble together effortlessly.
Perfect for a night out, at the office, casual lounging or lunch with your girlfriends, we can’t get enough of this enduring trend. There are of course the black staples that every woman needs; a dress, pair of pants, knitted sweater, leather jacket, blazer, and leather boots. These pieces, which you probably already have in your wardrobe, are the building blocks for a black-on-black look. Try mixing around different textures and fabrics to add new depth and interest.
Here’s some beautifully black TÉLIO fabrics to further inspire you!
