Black Is the New Black: 5 Ways to Wear This Neutral from Head to Toe

I know that one of my New Year’s resolutions was to wear more color, but black will always be the most prominent color in my closet. I know I’m probably not alone in this either! Black is just so forgiving and versatile, there’s no denying it.

I find myself wearing all-black outfits on a regular basis and there is a way to do so while staying feminine and classy. Just because you’re wearing all black doesn’t mean you’re channeling your inner goth girl.

Here are 5 ways to wear black whether you’re running errands or headed out for a date!

    A black maxi can be styled 100 different ways, but I love to keep it simple sometimes and use a tight tank to accentuate my waist line. Add a black cardigan to keep it cozy and monochromatic!
