The power of black
The black color gives an impression of elegance, sophistication and confidence. It is often associated with sexiness and seduction, power, fear, mystery, strength, authority, formality and rebellion, seriousness and strength.
The color black is often seen as a color of sophistication, as in ‘the black tie event’.
You probably heard it before but I have to say it one more time. The phrase “black tie” refers to a formal event or dress code. It’s often ideal for work events or dress codes when you’re not entirely sure what’s appropriate.
Try introducing some statement layering and detailing, such as gold finishes, leather or velvet construction. Black can be fun so make the best out of it. An all-black outfit looks sharp and sophisticated when executed correctly, so don’t be afraid to test the waters. All-black and monochrome ensembles look super slick and will instantly take any casual winter look up a notch. Just remember to vary the tones and textures – whether that be combining pieces in multiple shades of black/grey or different fabrics. This helps provide clear definition and separation between each piece.
