How to Make Basic Black Your Blank Canvas

Lisa dresses up black

When you can’t make a black outfit work, here are some tips to make your outfit a touch more trendy! Lisa took her plain black t-shirt and jeans outfit and by adding a few accessories transformed it into a chic attire.

  1. Add a splash of color.  Even if it is just gray as Lisa has done because it draws your eyes in.  Plus I love the color of her light gray sweater, it makes me want to make some hot cocoa and snuggle in it.
  2. Highlight a fun accessory (or more). Like me, Lisa has an obsession with statement pieces such as her silver hammered necklace shown here. If you are not a necklace person why not try out another accessory?  Earrings, headbands, bracelets, watches and even belts make for a great statement piece. Lisa highlighted multiple accessories by having them far enough are part from one another so that they did not compete.  As well, by using accessories in the same color story it made the necklace, belt and watch work well together and compliment one another.
  3. Shoes. Shoes. Shoes. Lisa chose a great black boot that was perfect for our college campus; however, if you are going on a date why not put on your favorite pair of heels?  Shoes are a great way to transform any outfit – especially for a plain black outfit a pop of color in your kicks can take an outfit from drab to fab! Just make sure the shoes you choose are appropriate for the occasion.

Think of a black outfit as a blank canvas, you can change up these tips every day and essentially come up with a new look each time!
