The Versatility of Black in Fashion

We all have something black in our wardrobes. This is the one color that’s guaranteed to never go out of style. This is why everyone considers a black pair of jeans and a little black dress necessary wardrobe items. Some fashion creators even advise that when confused about what to wear, start with a black base like a black pair of trousers, or a T-shirt, as the black base provides plenty of choices to style your look. So let’s take a look at a few outfits that celebrate black’s versatility.


T-Shirt & Black Jeans

Firstly, the iconic but straightforward T-shirt paired with black jeans look. This style presents a chic look for something simple and fits different occasions like lunch, movies, etc. Go crazy with the T-Shirt if you like, and the black still complements it nicely.

Next, we have black blazers. Blazers are another wardrobe essential, so imagine having black blazers. Pair a piece of blazers with camisoles and denim jeans for a classy, corporate look to the office, or wear it on your little black dress for that first date for a sophisticated look.

Another favorite is the classic black t-shirt. Black t-shirts are another wardrobe staple. You can pair a black t-shirt with shorts for a fun day at the beach or with a pair of palazzo pants for brunch with the girls. If you’re aiming for a vintage look, try pairing a black t-shirt with wide-legged pants and a vintage shirt. Starting with a piece of black clothing always gives room for you to experiment with your style, so when in doubt, start with black.
