Know to be the timeless and opulent shade, black is the most elegant shade you may go for whether you’re heading for a party or just a streamlined look for your street style. Black is also friendly when it comes to hiding your problem areas and makes you look slimmer and sexier than you actually are. Versatile and simple, you can wear your all-black outfits over and over again without being noticed. Keep on scrolling for our 8 picks of accessories that can jazz up your all-black outfits.
- Statement Necklace
If you have a trendy and playful personality, go for colorful necklace to add some pop to your black outfits, especially if black is not-so-flattering near your face. A colorful necklace will pop just enough when you wish to add a little color near your face but find haute couture earrings a bit too much. But, no matter how trendy and colorful your necklace, nothing beats the statement of a gold necklace in elegant designs. Whether you’re wearing a genuine gold or a fancy one, no one will ever notice as gold creates an elegant and luxurious contrast with black. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, go for a statement necklace with gold trims and jeweled stone and wear a bold red lipstick to glam up your looks.
- Blanket Scarf or Neck Scarf
It’s time to wear your brightly colored and loud printed scarves with your all-black outfits giving a great pop of color if you feel statement necklaces are not for you. You may actually opt for a printed blanket scarf like Blair Eadie and wear it like a shawl or cover-up when it gets chilly outside, or simply tie it on your bag like Kristina Bazan did to give your outfits some flash and spark.
- Hat or Beanie
Wearing brightly colored hats can be daunting especially those wide-brimmed and floppy hats that can create a harsh contrast on your face. So, you may resort to a brightly colored beanie that can be perfect to spice up your casual street style. Like fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni, add some elegant brooch to your beanie to make it look chic so you’ll have a casual-chic look even you’re just wearing your most basic outfits.
- Studded or Chain Belts
A colorful belt can add a bright pop to an all-black outfit while also giving a great definition on your waist. However, be careful, if you have a thick middle, are petite or want to create a longer, leaner look, avoid breaking up your outfit with a belt in a contrast color. Instead of colorful belts, stick to belts with gold studs or chains to make you look a bit glamorous and elegant on your style. Looking edgy doesn’t mean resorting to leather, spikes, and dreadlocks as gold studs on your belt can sometimes be enough to wear the edgy look with glam.
- Metallic or Bright Shoes
Black shoes may be versatile and nude shoes are leg lengthening, but a pair of metallic or bright shoes will give you some pop of color that looks trendy and fashion-forward compared to them. So, if you wish to jazz up your all-black outfit with trendy footwear, try swapping out your neutral-colored shoes for some colorful ones. The shoes add a little distraction to your clean and modern black look while bringing something unexpected to the outfit.
- Tinted Sunglasses
Create an unexpected and modern look with a pair of tinted sunglasses. Lens in the tints of blue, lavender, green, and mustard can be great. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, add some refreshing look with a pair of blue sunglasses with your boxy outfit of jacket, skinny jeans, and boots.
- Brightly Colored Bag or Metallic Clutch
Carrying a brightly colored handbag with your colorful outfit will add some trendy vibe to your looks. Think of bright red, cobalt blue, orange, pink, purple, green and such that can add some playful vibe to your outfits. On the other hand, if you’re aiming for an elegant style, stick to metallic shades of silver and gold on your clutches and bags.
- Combination of Printed or Bright Accessories
A combination of brightly colored bag, shoes, scarf, shoes, hat, necklace, belt, and sunglasses will bring more life to your all-black outfits. However, if you wish for an elegant look, copy Blair Eadie’s style of wearing a matching set of leopard print bag and classic pumps with her black lace dress that gave her a classic, romantic, and timeless look.
