Winter Fashion Trend: Black on Black

By Fatima N.

Forever Chic: How to Wear Black On Black

Head-to-toe black has always been the New Yorker uniform, come winter, get ready to see it everywhere. This is the color that goes with everything. It´s flattering to wear and makes us look slim. Here's how to stand out in a sea of ebony, because black is officially back in fashion this season…

1) Winter Accessories

One way to wear all black is to add accessories, a scarf, a statement necklace, anything! Why don't you try the ubiquitous blanket scarf fashion trend?

2) Statement Coat

If this winter is anything like last winter, you're going to need a warm coat. Make it a statement coat, as seen on Tom Ford's Ready to Wear Fall 2014 runway.

3) Goth Look

Another way to make your all black dressing relevant runway-wise is to go goth. Put a stark dark Victorian spin like the way Erdem, Emperio Armani and Vera Wang did. For more on the evolution of black in fashion, click here.

4) Black and White Look

I recently bought a pair of white Converse with black piping. Although its pretty high maintenance (white gets dirty so easily!) it is SO worth it; its versatile and chic. I love black and white for winter. I'm hoping to translate that into my clothes as well. 

5) Texture

If you'd rather not go with a minimalist vibe, play with texture and different fabrics! Look to Alexander McQueen, Victoria Beckham and Erdem (Erdem has a whole stash of black on black sartorial inspiration) for example. Faux-fur, sequins, and leather are only few of your choices for this timeless look.

It's easy to see why this timeless fashion look is still IN. "I could write a book about black..." said Christian Dior. Black is the original black. More on outfit ideas on how to wear black on black here. Until next time fashionistas, xo.
