Fashion Staples: Black!

January 30, 2012

I’ve always loved black, and I wear a lot of it, especially during the winter. But when I was told that, for my new job, I need to wear all black to events, I starting thinking that maybe I didn’t own as much black as I thought I did.

Black pieces are the most versatile in any wardrobe, and the best pieces to invest in. I’ve never minded spending a lot of money on a black blazer or a great pair of black pumps because I know that the quality and versatility will matter more than buying something cheap that I don’t really love, or that will fall apart after a few wears.

Since my wardrobe is going to be evolving, and I need to invest in some new black pieces, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorites that I am looking to add to my own arsenal. My look can be classic one day, consisting of streamlined, tailored cuts and classic silhouettes, or a bit more edgy, incorporating contrasting fabrics and unique details. These are all pieces that are perfect for a work event (depending on the industry you work in and the type of event), but that can also be worn to dinner, happy hour, or out with friends. Black can sometimes seem boring and uninspired, but the right styles and details make this classic color a trendy addition to any closet!
