How To Wear Black


Black is best worn with Black.

How To Wear Black

Step 1:

Getting it right

Wearing black close to the face can be draining and ageing, particularly if you are pale or slightly older. Soften the look with metallics or grey tones to lift your face.

Step 2:

Brighten it up

Combining black with a bright colour can lift the look, as long as you balance the colour throughout the outfit- If you wear a colourful top, pick up that colour in the shoes and accessories.

Step 3:

Black Lace

Wearing black lace is an effective way of making an area of the body look smaller than it actually is. If you are fuller figured in the bust or hips, black lace will break up the expanse by drawing lines through the body.

Step 4:


The gothic style is characterised by maxi length dresses and skirts, and high necks to elongate the body. Avoid high necks if you have a large bust as they will make your bust look larger.

Step 5:

Little Black Dress

The LBDs for Autumn / Winter are mini and strapless or knee length and one shouldered. Whichever style you go for, always complete the outfit with diamonds or diamante jewellery.
