Many of us, myself included, love to wear color. Vibrant colors pick us up, change our mood, and express a strong statement. Wearing all black is also expressive: I think it says “I’ve got this style thing.” Black exudes chic and cool, and makes a pleasing change-up from color. The women of this week’s Visible Monday had something to communicate in their black outfits, and as per usual, they inspire.
As always, the first tip is: wear black the way it feels right for you, and own your look. Confidence is all.
And there’s always room in my closet for some black treasures:
Gorgeous Glenda from So What To Twenty chose this tiered black dress by Isabel Marant that she found via eBay. The ruffles are dramatic and the black keeps it cool and chic. The black boots are statement-makers too:
Jessica of Elegantly Dressed And Stylish, does all black, with a hot pink scarf for accent. In her post, she gives great tips on how to wear black if you’re fair-skinned. That hair! is always gorgeous too:
Judith of Style Crone wears black (and everything else) so regally. Here’s her description of this stunning look: “Vintage suit and jewelry from estate sales, and vintage Norma Kamali fabric leopard print hat and gauntlets from my hat shop in the 80’s.” Bravo, and thanks for sharing the great pictures by photographer Denton Taylor.
Andrea of Andrea’s Wellness Notes is doing mostly-black here and looks so chic. The embroidered jeans stand out against the sophisticated and well-cut black jacket and boots:
I am on board with black this week too in a recently thrifted vintage 80’s dress and a sparkle-belt. I do love black with blond hair, and it’s so easy to throw a look together:
How do you like to wear your black? xo
Here’s more statement-making pieces for any age, inspired by the Visible women:
