Back to Black
With Halloween being just a couple of weeks away, naturally we got to thinking about our costumes. We like to keep our All Hallow’s Eve celebrations traditionally spooky, so that generally means our costumes are all, or mostly, black. And while we were in that dark and spooky mindset, that got us thinking about some of our favorite black dresses, tops, pants and jumpsuits that we’re stocking currently here at Moly Pretty.
Of course black is a great addition to your closet – it goes with any other pieces or accessories and many people love it for its slimming properties. A little black dress is always a safe bet for an evening event such as a cocktail party, work gatherings, or even a first date when you’re not sure what to wear.
Of course, everyone talks about the LBD, or Little Black Dress, but not all of us feel comfortable showing too much leg. A plain black dress in a midi length, or even floor / ankle length if you’re really not a fan of showing your legs also makes a stylish option for an outfit. Even with longer lengths, the neutral black of the fabric will generally make for a chicer and more put together look.
Meanwhile a black t-shirt, top or blouse makes an excellent backdrop for showing off a piece of statement jewelry such as an over-sized necklace or chunky, dangely earrings, or for a brightly colored, or detailed shoulder bag.
And now the weather is getting cooler, it’s also an excellent time of the year to invest in a few black sweatshirts, hooded tops or knitted sweaters. This season we’re really loving the backless trend and tops with twists, cut outs and open or deep V backs are an excellent way of adding a little pizazz to a plain black outfit.
What’s your favorite way of wearing black? Do you tend to stick to the same color pallet? Or do you prefer to keep your closet stocked full of bright colors? If so, maybe it’s time to come over to the dark side and throw a little black into the mix!
