Don’t you just love a bit of go-to black?
But don't you often wonder how to liven it up? The obvious solution would be to add a bright colour or some silver to lighten it, however, try to see black differently. What do I mean?
Well, try viewing it as a colour with its own strengths and abilities to compliment colours that you perhaps wouldn’t initially think to pair it with. For the ultimate compliment to your complexion for example, bring some richness such as camel, berry or copper tones for an injection of warmth. Think of the wonderful Autumnal colours for inspiration - particularly in the fallen leaves.
Fat Face have introduced black this year into their party/evening wear collection and paired it with sumptuous copper for extra sass and style! Titled Copper & Black, the range is so varied that many pieces can take on different roles in your wardrobe - if you’re planning a weekend away this can make packing so much easier! You can layer tone on tone with a framing of black or keep it simple and add some accessories to give more character.
I love this cute Saffron Twill Mono Polka Dot Skirt £42 and it has my favourite and very on-trend detail - pockets! Oh, and an elasticated waist is just the ticket for all the festive feasts. For some extra volume and ra-ra on your night out, what about the Caroline Petal Floral Skirt £38 in a deep berry – delicious! Either skirt would work with the Deep Berry Lizzie Cashmere Top £35 tucked in or wear all black with antique gold accessories for the warmth that’s needed to add a glow to your complexion.
