black outfit tips

Black is undoubtedly the most universally-coveted color and if you ask anyone out there they would tell you that half their wardrobe is comprised of mostly black items. The remaining half is probably made up of whites and neutrals with some colors and prints thrown in as an afterthought. Though there is nothing wrong with wearing only black; it only means that you should invest wisely in the items that will compliment your mostly black-ish outfits. Despite being a black-wearing enthusiast myself; but I feel that it does get a bit boring at times. It would feel like something is just missing from my outfit, and though it may not be a major thing but there are some cool touches that would uplift an all-black outfit instantly. Read below for 8 tips that will elevate an all-black outfit.
