  • Hi.. I'm Linda Otiende; a Personal Style Blogger. I think fashion and style is all about creativity; playing around with what you have to create something unique and stylish out of it. Blogging about my personal style is an interest I developed about three years ago when I discovered that as ladies, we really go to certain extremes to look good. Yes, we gotta look good but at the end of the day that does not mean that we have to wear the most expensive clothes or shoes to be stylish. You can actually work it out in the cheapest of them yet still ooze class! So welcome to my blog where I will get to show you my personal style and how I manage to look good on a budget. I do hope you enjoy.

    How to Look Good in Black

    The good thing about an all black outfit is that you have the power to spice it up. When you decide to put on a black LBD and black heels then your outfit will look monotonous but when you decide to throw in a colorful clutch purse or a metallic belt or even bold jewelry then your outfit brightens up. But don't get me wrong though, an all black outfit rocks. Am just showing you ways you can spice up your look to break the monotony it would otherwise bring.

    So with that I will share a few rules I picked from the internet on how to look good when wearing black...
    1. A black outfit is the perfect canvas for a pop of color in your accessories so add colorful accessories to your all black outfit. A bright scarf, colorful bag/clutch purse, a hat, metallic belt or even shoes will give the whole outfit an attractive look. 

    2. Wear make-up. You can opt to add a bright red lipstick or eye shadow to add color to your face. 

    3. When putting together a black-on-black, fit becomes even more important. Take advantage of the fact that black is slimming and have the clothes be more fitted and flattering, rather than shapeless. You could opt to have cutouts or slits on your dress as seen in my previous post. 

    4. Vary the fabrics and textures especially if e.g you are wearing a top and skirt/jeans. 

    5.You can throw in a blazer, coat, denim/leather jacket etc depending on what you are wearing.  

    6. This is the time to throw in those luminous green pair of heels or floral pair that you've always wondered what to wear with. 

    With that, enjoy today's post and have a blessed weekend ahead:-)

    6. All black any day cause it means I can wear all other loud colors/prints in accessories and get away with it.

      This outfit is outright gorgeous, very versatile. The clutch bag is so cute while the vest jacket is too fine...love it.
