Elegance, distinction, mystery… These are the adjectives that most often define the color black. Not in vain is it one of the star colors in any woman’s wardrobe.
But beware: black is not an easy color to wear, no matter how much they say it is. It has the virtue of “slimming” the figure, but it has the downside of providing too much sobriety and melancholy if it is not properly combined. For this reason, in the Christian world, wearing black is synonymous with mourning for a loved one.
However, we are not here to be sad, on the contrary! Wearing a black dress to any event is a sure bet for others to notice you. It is an elegant, discreet and very powerful color combined with the right accessories.
And for that we are here, to give you some good tips and advice so that you can combine your black dress and be a hit wherever you go.
Tip 1: keep in mind the event you are going to attend
Because obviously going to a wedding is not the same as going to a meeting with co-workers. Both cases require a different port.
Black for business dinners or executive meetings goes especially well and we highly recommend it, it makes you stand out as an authority.
However, if you’re going out at night, another less rigid option is a flared dress and tall cowboy boots.
Tip 2: What accessories are you going to wear?
One of the details that makes the color black the favorite of many wardrobes is that, being a neutral color, it is very combinable with other colors.
Belts are a classic, especially if you are going to opt for a flared knee-length dress and want to slim your waist. And, of course, an exclusive bag cannot be missing. We recommend that you opt for beige or white tones, since black is a powerful color, generating contrasts with lighter colors will make you look less aggressive.
Lastly, pay attention to your shoes. If you opt for a more casual meeting, high boots or ankle boots are very welcome. If not, high-heeled shoes are your best weapon, especially if you are looking to stylize your figure and mark your stride more.
Tip 3: color combinations
Linked to what we have mentioned before, black is indeed a color that combines very well with practically all shades, especially with beige or white and gray tones.
But that does not mean that you cannot combine it with blue, like a denim jacket, or ocher brown, in the case of opting for a scarf or shoes in that color.
You can even dare with something different and try combining it with a powerful red if you are going to a more glamorous meeting, such as a wedding.
Tip 4: makeup and contrasts
Makeup can be a real headache, especially if you are not very familiar with the different makeup styles or ways to bring your look to life.
Here also the personality of each one comes into play. Here are some recommendations:
- n general, we do not advise you to make up your eyes with black eye shadow, but to go for lighter shades such as brown, green or blue. Remember that we are looking for a contrast.
- Depending on whether your dress is satin, shiny or monochrome, your eyes and lips should match. To give you an example: if the black dress has glitter, do not repeat that style in your eye shadow and opt for a matte effect in your eyes.
- Normally, red lips are always a success combined with a black dress, especially if you go to important events such as business dinners or weddings. In more informal meetings, pink or nude tones are an equally successful option.
