No matter what Pantone Color of the Year is announced or what patterns prevail, the fact remains that all-black ensembles never, ever go out of style. And now that temperatures are beginning to cool down, it’s time to return to one of your wardrobe’s most time-tested staples.
At Savoir Flair, we believe that all-black outfits don’t have to be boring, especially since taking monochrome to extremes has proven to be so popular this year. Jump on the bandwagon, spicing up your fall look in new and unexpected ways by browsing the gallery, below, for tips on how to make a top-to-toe black outfit even more interesting.
Decorative embellishments, coordinated separates, and a gorgeous coat in a contrasting shade take this all-black ensemble from blah to ah-mazing.
It’s hardly cold outside, which means abbreviated lengths are still appropriate for this season. Try a ventilated look, like this flirty outfit, by combining a perforated-sleeve top and knee-length skirt with strategically placed slits.
Radically transform the appearance of an all-black ensemble by selecting unexpected and tactile textures, as seen in these magnificently embellished trousers.
Combine menswear and womenswear for a look that is both office-savvy and evening-appropriate. When it comes to updating a monochrome look, a lace top layered with a long vest brings a lot of mileage to the table.
Play with intriguing proportions, like this oversized hoodie worn with thigh-high boots, for a stylish look that is both trendy and ever-so-slightly provocative.
If you’re opting for a head-to-toe black outfit, break up flat surfaces with embellishment details and a mixture of different textures, such as velvet and suede.
If you want to make a LBD more interesting for a night on the town, a minidress with voluminous, eye-catching sleeves will do the trick.
When you’re going monochrome, it can be easy to blend into the crowd. Stand out with the help of a statement hat (or any other major accessory) that complements your look.
