Black On Black

Last week, my old roommate/BFF, R, and I were talking about all-black outfits, and how to pull them off. In the process of experimenting with some items yesterday, I came up with the following tips:

Tip #588: Break up the black pieces of your outfit by adding your favorite colored nail polish, or statement necklace. These extra additions will prevent you from looking too dark.

Tip #982: Experiment with different textures to break up the darkness even more. Here, I have a silky blazer, smooth cotton tank top, and rippled bandage skirt.

I love the black on black. It looks classy, but is still fun with the varying textures.
