You can’t go wrong with black. It’s slimming. It’s simple. It’s sleek. It’s the shade that Audrey Hepburn is remembered most for wearing in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Her little black dress is a look that millions of women have copied for generations.
Black on black is almost always chic, however there is a danger in looking like you are an Edgar Allen Poe fanatic or worse, boring, when wearing this particular monochromatic look. By adding bold accessories and textures to a black on black ensemble you can breathe some life into the otherwise somber tone. Take a quick look at how a couple of San Diego ladies pulled of head-to-toe black.
In the Gaslamp, 25-year-old Aishlin Reilly looked every bit chic in black pants, a billowy black top and bandeau, with a boho style hat. The pattern on her peek-toe platforms paired with her platinum blonde hair took her monochromatic look from yawn-inducing to hip.
Alyssa Anduja paired her black look with a pair of knee-high lace-up boots and leather accented leggings for a modern twist. She wore a Michael Kors watch and an H&M top.
