What do you think of an all black outfit? Boring or chic? Unimaginative or classic?

Last year I was firmly in the ‘unimaginative and boring’ camp, but recently I’ve been drawn to all black ensembles as a way to showcase accessories. Today, for example, I added some oversize silver pieces – the necklace, the belt buckle – some burgundy shoes and a co-ordinating scarf and suddenly the outfit was pepped up about 80%.

Do you regularly wear black head to toe? Or do you prefer more colourful ensembles?

  1. I would find it almost impossible to wear head to toe black as I own so few black items! Definitely a colour girl :)
