How To Wear Black Head-to-Toe For Any Occasion

As a colour black connotes many things, but to fashion it is the perennial colour. Seasons may come and go and yet this deepest of hues maintains the capacity to look timeless or modern depending on how it is styled. Regardless, a monotonal black look is often the epitome of elegance; a safe choice to feel effortlessly put-together. Whether it be at this year’s NYE party or travelling to your next destination, a black head-to-toe look can take you anywhere….

IN THE OFFICE

A masculine silhouette is the perfect canvas for an office outfit of head-to-toe black. The black suit, in its very existence, is a classic which can be styled in a way which either plays to this time-honored sartorial choice or has a modern edge. The best base is separates – helped by the joy of being able to pair black with black with ease – in flattering shapes. A wide-leg trouser and jacket, which accentuates the waist, will always feel sophisticated. With a sleek business handbag like the Fiorella in hand, simply pair this timeless ensemble with. a thin cashmere knit in the winter, or a soft midnight blouse in the slightly warmer months.

IN THE COUNTRY

Set against the backdrop of rusted leaves and frost-bitten fields, a black outfit to explore the countryside can be the most practical and chic choice. The quilted jacket is a key trend for this autumn/winter, but a black option is the most reserved way in which to combine it into your wardrobe. A little interest can be added by pairing this soft quilt with the texture of a camel hair scarf, the rough durability of a pair of jeans, and then the rich leather of a Maxwell Scott backpack. The black colour palette means that this mix of texture never feels overly fussy, instead it promises an always sleek look. Head-to-toe black is a stark contrast to the vibrancy of the countryside, but perfectly reflects the functionality needed for such an occasion.

WHILST TRAVELLING

There is nothing better to travel in than a large inky knit. This Haider Ackermann roll neck is ideal to snuggle down into on a long-haul journey or this Balenciaga crew-neck will add a little drama to any travelling ensemble. They both, however, importantly allow you to play with proportion – the key to giving any travel look a modern, chic overall finish. Pair these with soft black trousers, matching trainers, and a pair of oversized sunglasses for a look which perfectly marries together.

FOR THE NYE PARTY

Welcome in the new year in a timeless classic – the LBD – with an embellished twist so that you twinkle all night long. Take inspiration from some of the biggest style icons, such as Kate Middleton and Audrey Hepburn, who always manage to dress for events with a sense of individuality despite wearing black. It is the embellished accessories that inject an extra personalised glamour into the look, and the big occasion means that you can go all out. It is certainly the most splendid way in which to elevate a basic, but perfectly formed, black dress for this celebratory evening.

ON A DINNER DATE

There is no fabric that connotes a sense of romance better than tulle. Wrapped in this delicate froth, an evening enjoying the company of a good date is rarely better spent. These dresses by Simone Rocha and Preen are the standout piece, without looking like too much effort was made, and so keep accessories to a minimum with a simple court shoe and minimal jewellery. The beauty of a black tulle dress is that the combination of this often harsh colourway, with the delicacy of the fabric, suits any personality. Simply throw the Lucca over your shoulder, and enjoy dining the evening away in style.
