black on black

I know that this will appeal to all the new yorkers out there, but I think that the west coast is finally ready to give in to this sleek trend! Black on the balck is not only chic, but also very flattering for different body types. My number one concern about this trend is making sure that the black pieces are not 'dingy' in color. Its ok for the pieces to have different textures (encouraged) but should be similar shades of black. Piecing together black can be tricky, because you don't want to look too gothic, but lets admit to our selfs that "yes, i want to look a little rock n' roll!" To avoid a kiss revival don't go chunky with your footwear and stick with a body hugging bottom, yes, this means leggings, tights or straight leg denim! Grommets and studs accompany this look perfectly so if you don't have embellished tunics, tops or dresses add cuffs, bracelets or bangles to get the look. Top this look off with a straight and sleek hairstyle a smoky eye and a pair of ankle booties.
