To avoid being an Effortless Blob, here's how to layer black on black!
While most of us can agree that black is one of the main colours in our wardrobes, we can’t all agree that we know how to wear it without looking like a black blob of poor style choices. Fear not, I’m here with some more tips, this time it’s how to wear black on black and do it like an Effortless Bitch!
There are three components to be mindful of when wearing all the same colour and they’ll help you make the right choices when it comes to putting your looks together:
Texture + Structure + Flow = Effortless Bitch in Black
Texture: Wearing the same fabric from head to toe is boring and doesn’t’ bring a sense of individuality to your look, when you mix various textures, it’s easy to look styled and effortless. Remember; you don’t need to worry about mixing textures that match, as long as they’re the same colour, it will work for your look.
Structure: Black is a slimming colour, but only if you wear it the right way. There has to be at least one structured component of your outfit when wearing all the same colour to ensure that you don’t lose your shape. This could be in the form of a jacket, coat, skirt or top and can even be used in the form of larger, bulkier accessories.
Flow: We all love to slip on something loose and comfortable but knowing just how comfortable and loose we should be is something we need to be taught. Ensure that where you put your flowing fabric is in an area you would like to bring more attention to as it draws the eye in and moves as you do. A great example of this would be to wear a slightly longer style flowy top under a structured jacket like a blazer.
