Ah black. It’s one of those colors you just can’t go wrong with. Growing up I always thought of black as a dressy, date night or cocktails color. Think LBD. But now black can carry itself from morning to night with ease. The current moto trend in jackets and leather leggings gives an edginess that just isn’t easily pulled off in other colors. And a black cashmere sweater is a basic for any wardrobe.
I’m a huge fan of tonal dressing – wearing the same color or shade from head to toe, with variations in fabric and texture. It’s slenderizing and sophisticated.
Rachel Zoe is the queen of accessorizing. What could be a simple black dress is now a statement look with the gold chains. I’m also loving the large cuff bracelet over the dress sleeve — a great way to accent a long sleeve.
Victoria Beckham looks stunning in pretty much everything, but I especially like the back tights here. It elongates the look and makes a shorter skirt much easier to wear. Oh, and the bag!
No matter what your personal feelings are about Gwyneth Paltrow, you have to admit she looks amazing in these black leather leggings. I love that she paired the skinny leg with a high heel – it gives the look the right proportion.
