Black on Black

October 14, 2010

Ask anyone to describe a typical “New Yorker’s” style and they will undoubtedly respond “all black”. Indeed, on almost every block of New York City you will see at least one person dressed in black from head-to-toe, and truth be told it’s quite possible that I may be one of them. As much as I love mixing different colors and patterns, sometimes an all black ensemble just feels more chic and edgy. It’s no lie that wearing all black certainly makes you look thinner, but regardless of its slimming tricks, there is something empowering about the all black look.

Many people look down upon the “all black” costume because they consider it to be a boring and uninspired outfit, but let me just say that fashion icons like Kate Lanphear, Freja Beha Erichsen, and Kate Moss are constantly seen wearing all black get-ups and they are considered some of the most influential style icons in the industry. So next time you’re having one of those days where nothing in your closet looks good or you need an outfit that’s going to make you feel confident and empowered, I suggest opting for black from head-to-toe.
