Sure, I wear olive green year-round. Everyone has a handful of colors that they can just rock, that are naturally beautiful on them. But black? Black is everyone’s color. I honestly believe that it works with both pale or tan skin, depending on how you accessorize it or utilize make-up to prevent looking washed out. I also don’t think that black gets the time it deserves in the summer, especially on the potentially cool evenings. The most slimming color? Um… yes. I’ll take a wardrobe full of that, please and thank you.

How to Rock All Black When You Just Don’t Feel It

  • If you’re typically hooked on brights this time of year, try accessorizing the look with cobalt shoes or neon earrings.
  • If you tend to get warm easily, make sure to get breathable fabrics and stick to breezy skirts.
  • If you feel like black makes you look a little on the “ghost” side of life, try accentuating your cheeks with a bolder blush than normal, or contouring those cheekbones.
  • If you don’t like wearing an outfit of just one color, do it anyways:) Branch out!

Black looks tend to give me more confidence than I normally have. I’m always in favor of feeling better about myself.

((And isn’t this just the daintiest necklace you ever did see? It was sent in my Rocksbox (which you still can get a month free to give it a try using “darlingdearestblogxoxo”:)!) and I’m quite the fan! It’s a bit out of my price range, but this necklace is much less expensive and super similar!))

    How adorable are you in these photos. I agree black works year round. That tank is so cute. Does it have side buttons? I love love your mules (need to get those) and that layered dainty necklace.

    I am a huge fan of black too as my current outfit also testifies. Take a peek below. I think you would like it. Black for the win!!

    I will see you at my linkup tomorrow, pretty lady! Have a great Wednesday! Ada. =))

    • It does have side buttons! I love that little detail. I’m really surprised with how comfortable these mules are! Old Navy hasn’t always had the most comfortable shoes for me, but these really are! I can stand in them of reasonable amount of time and be fine! I’m excited to hop over to your post!

  • So cute, I love the perky smile and fun of your outfit. I still wear a lot of black (year round) especially with shoes and shirts (like yesterday with denim).

    • Thank you, Rachel! Black really is just the easiest color.

  • I don’t wear a lot of head to toe black, but your cute look is making me want to try! I love how you added the pretty, delicate necklace and the cognac slides for a bit of contrast.

    • I needed a little something to break it up, an the shoes did just that! I definitely wear it more now than I have in the past, and I think that’s just come with the confidence of being a fashion blogger. Slow and steady, but definitely a good thing to gain!
