Love wearing head-to-toe black? You’re not alone, we’re big fans of a tonal look. Defaulting to an all-black outfit on the surface might seem like it lacks excitement, but this subtle tone packs a punch when done right.
There is a reason why some of our favourite style icons revert to the all-black outfit. Minimum effort, maximum reward. The psychology of wearing black suggests it conveys feelings of confidence, intelligence, and reliability, in fact this colour is mostly associated with things we value highly. It’s also discrete and has a connotation of sexiness without the loudness.
When we want to make a long term wardrobe investment if given the choice between black and an alternative, it’s always black. Why? This is the colour that will last the test of time. Its seasonless appeal transcends trends, years and decades.
When putting an outfit together black and black always works. To elevate it look at the details. The material, cut, shape and texture are what will make your eye rest and linger. Black on black is exciting when there are details to take it, as subtle as they may be.
And if anything is going to get you over the line to make an all black outfit your default it’s this one; it's simply so easy to get dressed.
Here are 5 all-black outfits that we’re wearing on repeat.
