Happy Tuesday ladies. Did you watch the game on Sunday? We didn’t even remember it was happening until it was almost over. I’m back today with my friend Cindy for our monthly fashion edit and this time it’s about wearing all black.
It should come as no surprise to you that wearing black is my comfort zone. I’ve dressed this way for so many years that it’s an effort to wear color. I’ve been working hard to not wear black lately, but the truth is, I always feel great when I wear black.
Since I own so many black garments, I assumed I’d have tons of older outfit images to share…but I have very few. I did find this one from an RV trip to Palm Springs many years ago.
It’s funny, but I still wear all these pieces except the scarf which I lost on vacation. Of course, the $9.00 Tarjay tee has long since been replaced.
Do you look older wearing black?
According to color experts, wearing black dramatically ages your face by highlighting the shadows under your eyes, wrinkles on your cheeks, and dark lines under the chin. Yikes! That sounds scary. Why would anyone intentionally do that? Quite possibly because they love wearing black as I do.
I admit the shadows look deeper under my eyes when I wear a black hat, but I’m already over it. There are too many fabulous black hats out there for me to never wear one.
In this outfit, I used texture to add interest. These stretch velvet pull-on pants got me through the holidays. I’m actually surprised to see them still available and now they’re marked down. My double sequin v-neck sweater is also still available and under $20. These are my velvet Birdies (on sale) that I wear, and wear, and wear. They seem to go with everything and are comfy on my wide feet.
To this very simple all-black outfit I added a couple of silver necklaces and a Zebra print bag to jazz it up. Most of my all-black outfits are made with simple pieces and unfussy details. I’m very comfortable in black and save my items for many years because they never go out of style.
