How To Wear Black

May 7, 2015

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: ‘I don’t bother you – don’t bother me'” – Yohji Yamamoto. 

I think Mr Yamamoto is absolutely right. I like the idea of colour but I prefer the reality of black. There’s a polished aloofness to it that I love and I find easy to ‘create’. My favourite ‘all black’ outfits often have a splash of grey thrown in, I think it makes the look.

Wear black with a pop of grey
Black with texture  
Black with a pop of colour (with accessories and/or lipstick!)  
Black with varied lengths and proportions 
My favourite ways to wear black:
  •  with a tan
  • with a pop of colour
  • with a pop of grey
  • with various textures
  • with different proportions and lengths
  • with metallic accessories
  • with bright lippie
  • with messy hair!
I don’t have a lot of clothes. You might have noticed that I’m wearing my 7 For  All Mankind black pants in all but one of these photos. I really don’t think it’s about having a lot rather about knowing how to use what you have.
