Black is mysterious, it’s elegant and sophisticated.
Putting on a black suit can make you feel in control as it hides all fear, and a LBD makes you feel sexy.
Black is slimming as it blurs out any and all lines and leaves no shadows, as it absorbs rather than reflects light, thus creating a balanced, sleek and slimmed down appearance.
Although is not really considered a colour, it is and has always been the number one go to colour for most women.
In the famous words of Coco Chanel “A women needs just three things; a black dress, a black sweater, and, on her arm a man she loves”
Chanel simplified women’s fashion during 1926 when Vogue magazine published a drawing by her of a simple Black dress. The LBD then lived on through the designs of Versace, YSL and the most famous LBD worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1961, designed by Givenchy for the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
“Black is Beautiful” wear it proudly!!!

When wearing black in summer, choose pieces that are season appropriate, like chiffon, silk and linen and heavier fabrics like wool for winter.
Spice it up with bold accessories, like jewellery, and we all know a red lip or leopard print shoe always looks good against black
Switch between day and night by making little changes, like lipstick colour, when wearing a LBD from work to after work cocktails. Try a bold deep red for night and a nude lip stain for day
