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:-)
