Some women wear black every day, by choice or as a uniform. Orchestral musicians, for example, almost always wear black head to toe when they perform. It’s well known that New York City fashion editors follow the law of: black, black, and more black. For the rest of us, it’s an option, and one that can add foundation and variety to our wardrobes.
Here is a cool, moody cover of the Stone’s hit:
I chose to do all black today, anchored by an unstructured thrifted dress by COS (similar). I love wearing this easy dress, especially now, because it slides over my cast like a dream, and it’s a great canvas.
I went with green jewelry – I don’t often match my jewelry, but I think these two pieces work well together. The pendant is from Citizen Rosebud, and was a birthday gift from Sandy. The enamel bracelet (sim) was thrifted eons ago, I still love wearing it.
Some of the gorgeous women from Visible Monday are also rocking black this week. Like me, they’ve added splashes of color and their own personalities.
Black can be sassy and summery: Kellyann of This Blonde’s Shopping Bag looks terrific in an off the shoulder knit dress. She makes it sparkle with a turquoise floral necklace and multicolor clutch. Black doesn’t always have to be serious. 🙂
Black can make any outfit look dressier: Cheryl of Northwest Mountain Living And Style combined a black tunic top with distressed jeans, an oversized bag, and the cutest shoes ever. So chic.
Black is a great foundation: Carmen of Fashionable Over 50 is amazing in an all-black capri outfit, with a floral kimono as a topper. She also happens to be visiting the High Line in Chelsea, one of them must-see venues in New York City.
Stay fabulous, and wear what you love every day,
