Back to Black



There was a time in my life when black was the only colour you could find in my wardrobe. Since then I've branched out but I still believe that black is an undisputed sophisticated style staple, just like Carrie did.


The best start to any black outfit is a pair of black textured tights. It immediately sets the tone of the look and is a very affordable way of customising your wardrobe. This pair of rose patterned beauties cost just $14.99 from Modcloth.


For a super-elegant addition to any look I don't think you can go wrong with a pair of black gloves. This vintage beaded pair from ShopCurious are one of a kind and only cost £28.50. I just love the idea of wearing these out to a fancy dinner!


Finally, for a full on goth look why not go for some retro vamp black nail polish? Again in these credit crunch times it's a wallet-friendly way of finishing off an all-black outfit. You can buy black polish from any beauty shop or pharmacy but Forever 21 do a particularly affordable version at just $2.80.

We can't ignore the traditional black - it's just impossible. A black outfit is always an option when you are clueless and doesn't know what to wear.
