Winter is coming, and that means it’s time to prepare for the cold weather. But just because you’re bundled up doesn’t mean you have to look dreary. This can be a bit of a challenge however, because cold weather is usually associated with dark colours. In particular, black is a go-to colour for winter, but if you don’t do it right, you can look as bleak as the season. When done right however, black can do you a lot of good and wrap you in head to toe glamour.
Here are some tips to remember:
With the right accessories, your all-black outfit gets a little bling. You can do this with a statement belt or some jewellery that gives you the right amount of sparkle.
- Go for texture.
Even when you’re in head-to-toe black, you can add some character to your outfit by picking pieces with texture. You can play with pieces made of interesting materials like lace or tulle. You can also go for knit and pleats to ensure that your outfit doesn’t fall flat.
- Make sure your black is not faded.
Black can be chic, but if you’re not careful you can also look sloppy. There are certain kinds of fabric that look really old when faded, and you don’t want something like that to ruin your outfit. You should also make sure your pieces are ironed well.
- Make it trendy.
Black is already sombre in itself, so you can make your outfit more interesting by going for something different: asymmetrical hems, ruffles, and other embellishments.
