There are days where nothing but an all-black outfit will do. Perhaps it’s the season, but it feels very comfortable and familiar. To keep it from looking too goth, I mix different patterns and textures.
For example, a coated skinny jean gives a waxy sheen differentiating it from my black tee. A counter argument can also be made that the key to a successful all-black ensemble isn’t the layering of fabric upon fabric but in fact adding a touch of silver. Ah yes, silver! A jolt of this metallic color in the right places really brightens up the look and has been known to put a little pep in my step.
